This 2-year post (with potential for 1-2 year extension) is anticipated to provide new insights into tumor stromal-immune crosstalk for high-impact publications and to generate new therapeutic concepts. A PhD in Biosciences with a strong background in tumor stromal biology or cancer immunology is preferred, together with relevant cell culture and assay experience. As an employee of Boehringer Ingelheim, you will actively contribute to the discovery, development and delivery of our products to our patients and customers. Our global presence provides opportunity for all employees to collaborate internationally, offering visibility and opportunity to directly contribute to the companies' success.
