PhD position in Active Immuno-Mechanics of Cancer Environments

1st December 2023 - 31st January 2024

We are currently accepting applications for a PhD position on the interdependence of active mechanics and immune response of cancer cells under the recently awarded Cancer Biology Doctoral Training Unit from the Luxembourg National Research Funds. Interested candidates should write to for further details and application procedures.

Brief description of the project: The role of host feedback on the microbial community has been largely neglected until now. Based on recently developed experimental workflows which allow to track microbial behaviour within cancer environments using organoid platforms, microfluidics, advanced imaging, in-house-robotics, mathematics and machine learning tools. In this project, the PhD student will use these tools and combine physics and mathematical approaches to understand how biophysical parameters (ECM, rigidity) within the cancer/tumor environments regulate the dynamics of the cancer microbiome.
