Postdoctoral research scientist position on Stem cells DNA metabolism
A grant funded 3-years postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of DNA metabolism, directed by Prof. V. Costanzo in IFOM, Milan. We are looking for a highly motivated individual interested in the investigation of the role of newly discovered vertebrate genes in basic and translational aspects of genome stability maintenance in cancer and stem cells. We will use a multidisciplinary approach including cellular and molecular biology, protein biochemistry and mammalian genetics. In particular we will use human and mouse stem cells and take advantage of CRISPR/Cas9 based mammalian genetics, mass-spectrometry analysis of protein-protein interaction networks, mammalian cell manipulation and mouse genetics to understand how genome stability in maintained in stem cells. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in molecular biology or related fields. Previous work in with stem cells, embryo manipulation and mouse genetics will be particularly appreciated. The candidate should have a good publication record in peer-reviewed journals, demonstrate creative thinking and be able to work independently and in team. Salary and benefits will be highly competitive depending on experience.
Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and names/contact information of 2-3 referees to Vincenzo Costanzo:[email protected]
