We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join the Maiuri team at the Department of Molecular Medicine and Medical Biotechnology, Federico II University of Naples, Italy. Our group studies how cells sense and react to mechano-chemical stimuli coming from the surrounding micro-environment. Particularly, we are interested to investigate how those stimuli impact on the cell nucleus.

We are seeking expressions of interest for a post-doctoral position from highly motivated candidates that would like to join our group at the Department of Biosciences, University of Milan, Italy. The successful candidate will work on a PRIN 2022 funded project, and he/she will employ a combination of molecular, cellular, and in vivo approaches to dissect novel epigenetic events occurring in breast cancer stem cells and related to metastasis formation. The project will involve the use of molecular and cellular biology techniques, including 3D cell cultures and NGS. The optimal candidates would be highly motivated, have a strong background in molecular or cellular biology, experience in transcriptional regulation and cell biology. Candidates holding a PhD degree are welcome to apply but highly motivated candidates at earlier stages of their scientific careers will also be considered. Potential candidates are invited to send a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests and contact information of 2 references to Giuseppina Caretti,

Two post-doctoral fellow positions are available, starting February 2024, in the Lab of Prof. Anna Kajaste-Rudnitski at the Department of Biology and Biotechnology of the University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy. About the project The goal of this ERC-funded project is to elucidate molecular mechanisms of nucleic acid sensing and pathogen recognition in clinically relevant targets of gene therapy for the development of innovative cell and gene therapy strategies and to fight infectious and autoimmune diseases. We combine molecular virology approaches with state-of-the-art NGS technologies and proteomics in advanced in vitro and in vivo models. What we look for The candidate must hold a PhD Degree in Biological Sciences, Biotechnology, or related disciplines with skills in molecular and cellular biology, as well as primary human cell culture and manipulation. Experience in iPSC culture and differentiation is a significant plus. Proficient English, independent working capacity, excellent organizational skills and team spirit are required.

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 (
