We are seeking applications from strong candidates for a postdoctoral fellowship position in tumor invasion and liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma, HCC) at Bordeaux university, U1312, BRIC. Our lab is focused at investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying cancer cell invasion in liver in interaction with the matrix tumor microenvironment. We collaborate with clinicians and pathologists to address critical clinical unmet needs. Our research is very translational benefiting from clinical resources and samples. We dissect mechanisms directly in human samples using a methodology combining laser capture and mass spectrometry. We are expanding our team and looking for a postdoctoral fellow to investigate novel invasion mechanisms driven by tumor cells that precipitate metastasis formation.
