A position will soon be open at the Scientific Directorate of the Regina Elena Institute, by means of a public call for applications for a one-year contract, eventually renewable, as Project Manager to support the management of European research projects of the Cancer Mission ( and of the Cancer Beating Plan ( ). The successful candidate will be in charge of managing interactions with European networks in which the institute is involved or will be involved in the future, driving the activities foreseen by the projects, controlling their preparation and implementation, monitoring results, coordinating technical reporting, maintaining relations with network members and ensuring the continuity of the reporting process. In order to carry out its functions it will have to interface, from time to time, with the experts of the Regina Elena Institute necessary for the various project requests, coordinating ad hoc working groups interfacing with the Scientific Direction and the Grant Office. Among the activities foreseen, but not limited to these, the chosen candidate will have to actively participate, as a representative of the Regina Elena Institute, in the preparatory meetings of the project proposals to be presented, in the kick-off meetings and in the periodic meetings of the different projects. The envisaged professional figure should have a scientific background possibly coupled with previous experience in the field of international relations. High familiarity with cloud portals for document sharing such as Onedrive/Sharepoint is required. Excellent knowledge of the English language is required. A knowledge of project management techniques in the field of research, particularly in oncology, will be an advantage.

We are seeking a highly motivated research scientist with previous training in cell biology and/or biochemistry for a postdoctoral position (24 months) working on "Role of (macro)autophagy in the regulation of turn-over, unconventional secretion and inter-neuronal spreading of neurodegenerative diseases- associated aggregation-prone proteins". The successful candidate will be enrolled on a funded research project aimed at identifying novel genes and signalling pathways regulating the interplay between mammalian autophagy and neurodegenerative diseases. More specifically, the project will require the use of up-to-date molecular and cellular biology techniques, such as confocal and live cell imaging, gene expression and mass spectrometry analyses, siRNA, shRNA and CRISPR/CAS9-based molecular manipulations of target gene expression, functional analyses in cell lines, patients-derived primary cells and ultimately in animal disease models, which will be deployed to analyse the contribution of the autophagic- lysosomal and unconventional secretion pathways to neurodegenerative diseases. Desired skills and experience The successful candidate should have a PhD with a solid background in molecular biology, cell biology and/or biochemistry. Research experience in molecular biology (including molecular cloning, DNA, RNA and protein manipulations) as well as an extensive experience in cell biology and cell imaging techniques are required. Additional experience in isolation and culture of primary cells, mass spectrometry and bioinformatic analyses would be considered advantageous. Interested applicants should submit a letter of application, CV and references (or informal enquiries) to: Maurizio Renna, PhD (
