Trace PDX platform at KU Leuven looking for Project Manager/Coordinator

Trace (, a multidisciplinary project focused on patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models at the KU Leuven, is set up within the department of oncology to narrow the gap between preclinical and clinical research by developing a more reliable and predictive in vivo model for different tumor types. The established PDX models have the potential to be a representative oncology model for testing innovative treatment therapies, investigating new and existing pathways and define biomarkers. Trace is thereby a crucial link between the clinicians of the UZ Leuven and researchers of the KU Leuven, in close collaboration with both key players. This ambitious and innovative project is a multicentric initiative active on a national and international level (including membership to the EurOPDX Consortium).

To support these activities, Trace is currently looking for a dynamic and highly motivated manager/coordinator. Full description of the position responsibilities and profile needed is available on the KU Leuven website:
