Postdoctoral fellowship position related to the efforts of the Task Force UNICAMP Against COVID-19 (http://www.ftcovid19.unicamp.br/index.html)



This project is
meant to unveil The Risk Factors and Mechanisms Underlying the Higher Susceptibility of
Elderly and Obese Individuals to Progress to the Severe Stage of COVID-19. OCRC is one of
the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (CEPIDs) supported by FAPESP (Sao Paulo
Research Foundation) (https://www.ocrc.org.br/). The EMRC is a newly formed cluster of
scientists at Unicamp with the goal of helping providing interdisciplinary solutions to human
diseases (https://www.facebook.com/ExperimentalMedicine/). Aging and obesity are important predictors of mortality by COVID-19. We will recruit a
postdoctoral fellow which will join an ongoing project aimed to: 1) understand why aging is a
risk factor for COVID-19 and how drugs targeting senescence and age-related pathways act
against SARS-CoV-2 infection, and 2) study how adipose tissue infection by SARS-CoV-2
contributes to COVID-19 pathogenesis. Candidates must have completed their PhD; have experience in molecular biology, cell biology,
virology and adipose tissue biology. Experience with SARS-CoV-2 will be considered an asset.
Previous experience working in a BSL-3 facility (or at least BSL-2) is important. We also expect
candidates to work in a multidisciplinary environment and be collaborative. The project will be led by Prof. Dr. Marcelo A. Mori under the FAPESP grant 2020/04919-2
(https://bv.fapesp.br/en/auxilios/106212/determining-molecular-candidates-that-contribute-
to-the-higher-risk-of-covid-19-in-aged-individuals/). The fellowship will be funded by FAPESP
under the respective project budget and have a timetable of 8 months, scheduled to begin in
September, 2021. For more information about FAPESP’s postdoctoral fellowship program,
please see http://www.fapesp.br/en/postdoc. Applications are due on August 08, 2021 at (Subject: Postdoctoral

documents:
a) Statement of interest, describing the reasons for your interest in this position and the main
lab techniques that you are skilled in;
