The Department of Biomedicine/Administration Centre at Faculty of Health at Aarhus University invites applications for a position as a Medical Laboratory Technologist within cancer research as per 1st of November 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is a permanent full-time position.

We offer a vibrant international research environment where English is the preferred language in the laboratory, at meetings and at seminars. The Department employs some 450 people and covers a range of research areas within Biomedicine. We contribute to the Bachelor’s degree programs in medicine, molecular medicine, odontology and the Master’s degree programs in biomedical engineering and medical chemistry. Our infrastructure is well developed with modern laboratories, core and animal facilities. You will work either in the brand new ‘Skou Building’ or similar as we are in the process of modernizing our old facilities. You can read more about the department here and about the faculty here.

You will be working in The Laboratory for Gene-Regulatory Mechanisms in Cancer, which aims to explore the interplay between genetics, epigenetics, and non-coding RNAs in the development and progression of cancer. Recently, we have started to explore the functional role and clinical potential of a newly described type of non-coding RNA, the circular RNAs, in brain tumors, colon cancer, hematological malignancies and inflammatory skin diseases.
