Job description

Malignant brain tumors show a particularly poor prognosis with high morbidity and mortality. The diagnosis of a brain tumor might be assumed based on its clinical history, but proper neuroimaging, especially with contrast-enhanced MRI, is crucial. Recent advances in the treatment of brain tumors have improved patient outcome, but despite all these efforts, brain tumors still remain a clinical challenge. Hence, there is an urgent need for effective therapeutic approaches to improve survival outcomes. Preclinical models can play a critical role for this purpose.

We are looking for a higly motivated PhD student that will perform research on innovative therapeutic strategies in preclinical models for brain tumors based on previously acquired results by our research group. The research will be conducted in collaboration with the Infinity Lab at Ghent University where you will be trained in the basic techniques necessary for the experimental work. The purpose is to obtain a PhD in Health Sciences within a period of 4 years.

Profile of the candidate

  • You have (or will obtain soon) a Master in Health Science (Biomedical Sciences, Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology, Farmaceutical Sciences, Veterinary Medicine or Bioscience Ingeneering).
  • You are interested in preclinical imaging with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
  • You are interested in small animal models for brain tumors.
  • You have (or are willing to obtain) a license to work with small laboratory animals.
  • You are able to work independently but also as part of an interdisciplinary research team.
  • You are highly motivated, and interested in conducting scientific research in order to obtain a PhD degree in Health Sciences.
  • You have excellent oral and written communication skills in English
