The two years curriculum of the MB4LS is designed to bridge the gap between data and discovery. MB4LS is designed to prepare young researchers to interact with the world’s most advanced biological and clinical datasets
The focus of the lab(www.donatilab.org) is to understand how transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms control cell plasticity. This is achieved through the combination of bulk RNA-Seq, single cell RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, functional genomics such as pooled shRNA screening, histology and advanced genetic approaches such as lineage tracing in vivo experiments
Applications are invited for postdoctoral research scientists in the area of quantitative molecular and cellular biology, cellular biochemistry and cancer cell biology. The successful candidate will work in close collaboration with a systems biologist to develop and validate a quantitative ODE model of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activation and trafficking in physiology and cancer. The project is a collaborative effort between the Istituto Europeo di Oncologia (IEO) in Milan, Italy and The Microsoft Research - University of Trento Centre for Computational and Systems Biology (COSBI) in Rovereto (TN), Italy.
A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sirio Dupont in the Department of Molecular Medicine of the University of Padova to study new regulatory mechanisms of metabolism and their relevance for cancer metastasis, funded by a Worldwide Cancer Research 2020 grant. The current research of the lab is focused on mechanotransduction and how this regulates signaling and metabolism. The ideal candidate should have a PhD in the field of molecular biology, cell biology or metabolism and relevant publications. Previous experience in cell culture and imaging techniques is recommended. Enquiries and applications can be sent to email@example.com explaining why you are interested in joining the lab, including a CV with a brief research synopsis, and contact information for 2 references (name, address, email and phone number).Start date:December 2020.
