Eligibility/Qualification– You should hold a PhD in a relevant subject.
You will employ biochemical and cell biological methods to investigate the role of nuclear force coupling and actomyosin isoform gradient formation in front-rear polarised invasive cell migration. You will be responsible for developing techniques that will enable you to quantify matrix adhesion dynamics and function in 3D matrix and you will employ mass spectrometry to study their composition.
Based on these findings, live-cell imaging and co-culture models of cancer cell invasion will be used to determine the impact of these regulatory mechanisms on cellular processes that drive invasion and metastasis.
