Località: 

Pieve Emanuele, IT, 20090

                                                                                         

A post-doc position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Elisa Di Pasquale at Humanitas Research Hospital - IRGB-CNR (UOS of Milan) to work on the field of stem cell biology applied to cardiovascular diseases. The position is for one year, renewable.

 

The laboratory focuses on application of iPSC technology to study of cardiac diseases (either acquired or of genetic origin) for identifying new pathophysiological mechanisms and potential pharmacological targets. We also recently started to exploit bio-engineering approaches for the generation of cardiac organoids/microtissues and the development new therapeutic tools.

We use a wide variety of techniques, from iPSC technology and specific heart muscle cell types derived differentiation to CRISPR/Cas9 editing, electrophysiological approaches, advanced imaging, genetic and epigenetic methods, and in vivo studies, and we are always excited to add new expertise and perspectives.

 

We are specifically looking for a smart and highly motivated postdoc candidate who wishes to advance her/his career in the field of cardiovascular biology. The successful candidate should hold a PhD in Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, or related disciplines, and have previous research experience in cellular and molecular biology and animal handling. Background in cardiac biology and prior experience with iPSC-CRISPR/Cas9 technologies will be a plus. Good proficiency in English (especially scientific writing and oral communication skills) is also required. Communication and team-working skills, open mind and proactive attitude are appreciated.

 

Interested candidates should send their CV and a cover letter.
