|non-coding RNA and DNA Damage Response (DDR)
|Date Posted||Thursday, 06 September 2012|
via Adamello 16
|Job Description||Our group has an opening for a creative and motivated researcher at the postdoctoral level to advance our understanding of a recently discovered novel class of non coding RNAs modulating the local DNA damage response in mammalian cells (Nature 2012). Our findings are expected to have important consequences on our understanding of DNA damage checkpoint and repair control, cellular senescence, cancer development and ageing. More broadly, our group is dedicated to the study of the impact of DDR activation in biologically relevant settings with a special emphasis on cellular senescence.
Milan is a vibrant city, located close to the Alps, the lakes region and the Mediterranean Sea. Our Campus hosts about 500 people and results from the integration of two cancer research institutes, IFOM and IEO and a branch of the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT). It presently hosts more than 40 independent research groups, a PhD school (SEMM), a Technology Transfer firm (TTF) and excellent core facilities.
|Qualification||The successful applicant will hold a PhD and will be able to demonstrate a good understanding of functions and of mechanisms of action of non-coding RNAs, with a special emphasis on DICER and DROSHA RNA products, in mammals. Important is a proven track record of productivity with at least one first author paper published in an international peer-reviewed journal. The candidate will be career-oriented, energetic and capable to take full advantage of the interactive research environment of our Campus and of an existing network of collaborators. Bioinformatics skills are a plus, but not essential.|
|How to Apply||Candidates should send their CV together with a cover letter and contact details of their referees to email@example.com|
