Postdoc position on genome analyses of bone cancer

University Hospital Basel
Bone Tumour Reference Centre
ArbeitsortBasel, Schweiz

We’re looking for an ambitious postdoc to support and complement our committed research group on the molecular pathogenesis of bone tumours. The group is based at the Bone Tumour Reference Centre at the University Hospital Basel, harbours a huge collection of tissue samples (both fresh frozen and paraffin embedded) with corresponding clinico-pathological data and is well connected with other researchers in the field, both clinically and more basic research oriented. Projects are currently focussed on the genetic basis and clonal evolution of osteosarcoma, the most common malignant tumour of bone.

Reference: Kovac M, Ribi S, (...), Baumhoer D. Exome sequencing of osteosarcoma reveals mutation signatures reminiscent of BRCA deficiency. Nat Commun 2015; 6:8940.


The candidate should be familiar with NGS sequencing and array data analysis. Furthermore, he/she should have a good understanding of cancer biology, cancer evolution and human genetics. Experience with R and bioconductor are mandatory, programming in any other language and previous experience with cancer genome analyses will be taken as an advantage. Although at present the accent is on data analysis, the successful applicant may be involved in project-related “wet” laboratory tasks in the future.

Wir bieten

The position offered has been secured for at least three years by a SNF grant and there are additional funds available for a PhD student. We highly value a respectful and constructive-minded atmosphere and work closely together.


Contact information: Prof. Dr. Daniel Baumhoer, Bone Tumour Reference Centre, University Hospital Basel,
