Rozzano, IT, 20089


Our Laboratory of Neurodevelopmental Biology is currently seeking a highly motivated and skilled researcher with a good background in computational biology and/or bioinformatics. The position is immediately available and is funded up to 3 years. The selected candidate will work with a dynamic group of young scientists focused on investigating cortical development and neurodevelopmental disorders, both in mouse in vivo models and 3D brain organoids.

The candidate will be involved with the analysis and integration of high throughput genomics data, such scRNA-seq, scATAC-seq, ChIP-seq as well as spatial transcriptomic data, and will contribute to the overall neurodevelopment theme.

Through leveraging these combinatorial approaches, our group aims to understand physiological gene regulatory networks that are fundamental to neuronal diversification and microcircuit assembly. The position implies the opportunity to attend and present the computational work at seminars, journal clubs and international conferences. The candidate will be expected to plan and prioritize their workload, with competing and shifting priorities under pressure of deadlines. We are looking for someone that will carry out world class research and share skills by training others and a willingness to collaborate.

Prior knowledge and expertise of handling single-cell datasets is highly desirable, and while the position will be suitable for PhD holders it would equally be of interest to enthusiastic candidates with an MSc in computational biology, bioinformatics or computer science with the relevant interest and expertise. Using data driven approaches, the post holder will also have the opportunity to identify candidate biomarkers that potentially have mechanistic roles in epilepsy and cortical circuit formation. Fluent English (written and spoken) is required.
