Research Assistant/Lab Manager
Human hematopoietic development and disease modeling Lab - Andrea Ditad
One research assistant/lab manager position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Andrea Ditadi at the SR-TIGET in Milan. Our lab combines developmental cell and molecular biology to understand normal and pathological human hematopoietic development, with a particular interest in studying the genetic origins for blood disorders and developing novel strategies for their treatment.
We are looking for a researcher who will help develop new techniques and assays to integrate stem cell biology, immunology and developmental biology. As a research assistant, you will also provide technical support to the projects of other researchers in the lab as well as help with general lab management. Experimental approaches include cell and molecular biology, flow cytometry and cell sorting as well as in vivo model systems, for which previous experience is required.
The position is open for a proactive self-motivated and team-oriented fellow, with documented experience and the following qualifications:
• high accuracy, reliability, precision
• organizational and multi-tasking skills
• excellent communication
Proficiency in oral and written English is a must. PhD and/or previous experience of lab management would be an asset.
Milan is a vibrant international city and is an excellent location for arts, commerce, design, entertainment, fashion and gastronomy. The host institution (Ospedale San Raffaele) is one of the leading research institutes in Italy. We offer excellent working conditions, including a competitive salary (initially for 1 year, renewable) that will be commensurate with experience, state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructures. SR-TIGET is a world-leading Institute in the areas of gene and cell therapy for the treatment of human genetic diseases; thus, our projects benefit from close collaborations with active clinicians and are expected to accelerate the development of techniques that could be translated to the clinic.
Informal enquiries and applications can be sent to Dr. Andrea Ditadi (firstname.lastname@example.org) describing briefly career goals and including CV and contact information for 2-3 references.
