  PhD Positions in Cancer Research
Are you looking for excellent research opportunities for your PhD studies at the forefront of basic, epidemiological or translational cancer research? At the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg, Germany's largest biomedical research institute, more than 500 PhD students unravel the causes of cancer development and develop novel tools for diagnosis, treatment and prevention.
  Role of the tumour microenvironment in gastric cancer
  Dr A. Boussioutas, Dr R. Busuttil
Applications accepted all year round
Gastric cancer (GC) is the fourth most common cancer globally and 7th in incidence in Australia. It has a poor survival rate which can be attributed to the advanced stage at diagnosis in most patients.
  Clinical cancer bioinformatics: developing new bioinformatics methods for improved analysis of cancer gene hybridisation capture panels
  Prof A Papenfuss
Applications accepted all year round
Bioinformatics is the application of mathematics, statistics and computational methods to the analysis of molecular biology data.
  Metabolic Reprogramming in Liver Cancer: delineating the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in tumour development
  Prof T. Tiganis
Applications accepted all year round
The Tiganis Laboratory is seeking a highly enthusiastic student to conduct research in cancer metabolism and obesity-associated liver cancer.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to starve cancer: Identifying metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer
  Dr K Brown, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round
A universal characteristic of all cancer cells is the reprogramming of cell metabolism to provide the energy and building blocks necessary to support proliferation and survival.
  Activation of targeted DNA Damage Response as a novel therapy for Ovarian Cancer
  Dr E. Sanij, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round
High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) is the most common and aggressive subtype of ovarian cancer and accounts for 70% of all ovarian cancer deaths.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round
Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  Analytic methods for detecting and making sense of somatic genomic rearrangements
  Prof A Papenfuss
Applications accepted all year round
Bioinformatics is the application of mathematics, statistics and computational methods to the analysis of molecular biology data.
  Exploration of novel approaches to anti-cancer treatment: manipulation of mutant p53
  Prof Y. Haupt, Dr S. Haupt
Applications accepted all year round
P53 is the most mutated gene in human cancer, affecting about half the cases of human cancer. We have recently identified novel regulators of mutant p53 using sophisticated loss of function whole genome high through put screen (image 1).
  Control of tissue growth and cancer by the Hippo pathway
  Dr K. Harvey, Dr C Poon
Applications accepted all year round
A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
