Postdoctoral Scientist fellowship in CANCER METABOLISM
Laboratory of Angiogenesis and Redox Metabolism
Dept. of Biology, University of Padua, Italy
The laboratory on Prof. Massimo Santoro is seeking post-doctoral fellows to study metabolism in cancer (Panieri and Santoro, 2016). Our team has recently identified a novel metabolic enzyme that is crucial for breast and melanoma survival and progression (more information available upon request). Such studies offer unique opportunities for designing new therapeutic strategies against metastasis and cancer spreading of these tumors.
The candidate must be a highly motivated researcher with a PhD in a relevant discipline as well as having some experience in genetic, molecular, and/or cellular biology methods. The applicant must have a good publication record in peer-reviewed international journals (including at least one paper as a first author in top-journal) and must be capable of working in a team as well as independently. Excellent communication skills in spoken and written English are required.
We offer a dynamic work environment in a stimulating scientific surrounding with a young,
enthusiastic, motivated team along the opportunity to contribute to high-impact projects. We offer a strong competitive salary (European Marie Curie Fellow range) as well as contributions to health and retirement funds.
Please send your CV, letter of motivation, and the contact information of at least three references to Prof. Santoro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
