Postdoctoral Position at Department of Experimental Pathology, the University of Bologna, Italy
One post-doctoral position is available at the Department of Experimental Pathology of the University of Bologna. We look for a highly motivated individual with a PhD in biomedical sciences or related fields.
The focus of the project, which is funded for three years by the Association for International Cancer Research (AICR), will be to define the role of DKC1 gene as a tumor suppressor in human cancer. The research plan will include experimental approaches to study how DKC1 gene functional impairment can influence ribosome biogenesis and the translation of genes involved in neoplastic transformation and progression in vitro, as well as the study of DKC1 gene mutations, epigenetic modifications and expression in primary tumors relevant for human pathology. The works involve cellular and molecular biology, protein biochemistry and molecular pathology of human primary tumors.
The applicant is expected to be well trained in molecular biology techniques and have a basic understanding of cancer research. If interested please send your CV including letters of recommendation of previous advisers to Lorenzo Montanaro at lorenzo.montanaro[ at ]unibo.it (it will be also required to answer the official call available at this page.
