Post-doctoral researcher in muscle gene expression

Gabellini Team, Division of Genetics and Cell Biology, San Raffaele Research Hospital (OSR), Milano, Italy

A post-doctoral position is open in the Gabellini laboratory at OSR to work in muscle gene expression. This project will integrate genome-wide data (ChIP-seq and RNAseq) with biochemistry and cell biology approaches.

Qualifications
We are searching for a highly motivated and career-oriented research fellow with a high level of independence and a PhD degree in molecular and cellular biology.
Experience with transcriptomic/epigenomic profiling and biochemistry is essential.
Expertise in handling and interpreting NGS data will provide a selective advantage.
Candidates possessing excellent analytical, communication and organizational skills must be able to work independently as well as with interdisciplinary teams.

Place of employment and work
San Raffaele is an international institute with a strong focus on biomedical research, offering an exceptional research environment and cutting-edge platforms. It is located in Milan, a cosmopolitan city, which has been ranked number one for quality of life in Italy: https://www.turismo.milano.it/wps/portal/tur/en.

The team
We are interested in understanding the mechanisms and dynamics of epigenetic regulation and chromatin structure, which coordinate global gene expression programs in normal and dystrophic muscle. We use in vitro and in vivo approaches to identify RNA profiles, transcription factor binding sites and epigenomes defining functional gene “hubs” and decision points that dynamically coordinate gene programming.

Terms of salary and employment
A 12-month renewable contract will be established. A competitive salary commensurate with the experience and qualifications will be offered to the successful candidate. Operating language in the laboratory is English. Applications including a cover letter, curriculum vitae and the names of (at least) two referees should be sent to: Davide Gabellini at [email protected]
