Position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow available at the Department of Biosciences, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Oslo in the research group of Professor Cinzia Progida. No one can be appointed for more than one Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Oslo. The appointment is a fulltime position and is made for a period of three years (10% of which is devoted to required duties, usually in the form of teaching activities). The candidate for this position will work on a project funded by the Norwegian Cancer Society. In this project, we aim to unravel the role of the endoplasmic reticulum-focal adhesions contact sites in transducing external cues to the nucleus, leading to altered gene expression, and how this is coupled with the development of the cancer cell invasive ability during cancer progression. To achieve this, the project will make use of RNAi screens and advanced imaging techniques such as super-resolution and live imaging. Our group has access to the National imaging platform NorMIC Oslo, with a wide range of state-of-the-art imaging equipment. The Department of Biosciences harbors also an EM-lab, the Norwegian Sequencing Centre (NSC) and Proteomics services. The main purpose of a postdoctoral fellowship is to provide the candidates with enhanced skills to pursue a scientific top position within or beyond academia. To promote a strategic career path, all postdoctoral research fellows are required to submit a professional development plan no later than one month after commencement of the postdoctoral period.
The Laboratory of Computational Modeling at the University of Trento (CIBIO Department, PI Luca Marchetti), in collaboration with Fondazione COSBI, is seeking for: 1. a senior post-doc mathematical modeler, with previous consolidated experience in quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) projects, with preferential knowledge in the area of mRNA-based products 2. a junior post-doc mathematical modeler, with experience in the area of mathematical modeling of biological processes to foster a joint investigation effort in mathematical QSP modeling of mRNA-based products, specifically vaccines and monoclonal antibodies (mAb), in the context of the International Wellcome Leap project “R3: RNA Readiness and Response”.

The laboratory of Prof. Massimo M. Santoro at University of Padua is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to study the role of metabolism in cancer growth and spreading. Our lab has recently identified a set of novel metabolic enzymes that are crucial for the regulation of lipid metabolism and antioxidant response (Mugoni et al., Cell, Mugoni et al., Nature Protocols, Santoro, Cell Metabolism; Arslanbaeva and Santoro, Redox Biology, Facchinello et al.,Nature Metabolism, in press). Using mouse genetic approaches as well as advanced molecular and metabolic techniques we want to elucidate how lipids and metabolism regulate cancer survival and progression. Our laboratory has acquired strong experience in the field of metabolism, genetic, molecular and cellular biology working with cells and animal models.
