One 1-year postdoctoral fellowship is immediately available in the Bonaldi Group “Nuclear proteomics”, at the Department of Experimental Oncology at the European Institute of Oncology in Milan, to develop a project focused on the dissection of the role of PRMT family of enzyme and the linked R-methylation of protein targets in the gene expression rewiring of ovarian cancer in the adaptive response to genotoxic stress, also through the integration with other –omics data
We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and experienced person, with a proven track record and knowledge in biochemistry or proteomics, and an analytical/quantitative attitude. Demonstrated ability in interpersonal communication and collaboration, as well as strong initiative and ability to work independently and drive the project forward are essential. Experience in supervision of junior colleagues is also appreciated.
The post-doctoral fellow will work within a project that is deeply rooted within Institutional research strategies and that takes advantage of international collaborations with other international Research Groups focused on implementing translational proteomics, via an EU-sponsored Consortium.
Requirements: PhD in one of the following discipline: Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Medicine. Strongest motivation and research commitment; excellent analytical skills; a background in biochemistry and in MS-based proteomics/modification-proteomics is highly appreciated.
Competitive salaries will depend on the candidate’s track record and experience.
The operating language of the lab is English.
The European Institute of Oncology is one of Europe’s most influential cancer research institutes. The IEO operates as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, linking fundamental and applied research to clinical activities, patient care and clinical trials. The department of Experimental Oncology (DEO) is currently composed of ~250 scientists working in 15 independent research groups and units. DEO is located within a scientific campus together with two other partner institutions: the FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology (IFOM) and the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT). The IEO is one of the 13 members of the EU-LIFE alliance to promote excellence in life sciences in Europe.
Application deadline: October 31st 2022.
