Post-Doctoral Fellow in Tumor Metabolism: Luxembourg

Postdoctoral Researcher Position in University

Post-Doctoral Fellow in Tumor Metabolism: Join an interdisciplinary project investigating treatment resistance mechanisms in Glioblastoma (GBM), the most aggressive brain tumor. This project focuses on understanding how GBM cells adapt their metabolic demands during tumor growth and treatment, with a particular emphasis on mitochondria function. The research is part of an FNR INTER funded project in collaboration with the Institute of Biotechnology CAS, Czech Republic, and involves metabolomics profiling and functional cancer assays.
