Postdoc position at Laboratory of Malignant B cells biology and 3D modelling

A Post doc position is available starting January 2022 in the Malignant B cell biology and 3D modeling Unit led by Dr. Cristina Scielzo at the Division of Experimental Oncology.

Our group is actively investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms leading to leukemia cell/microenvironment interactions in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) by unravelling HS1 protein mediated cytoskeletal activities. In parallel, we are developing new advanced 3D in vitro co-culture systems by prototyping a bench-top 3D bio-printer and dynamic growth in bioreactor to recapitulate in-vitro a proper microenvironment to study leukemia biology and response to drugs.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with previous expertise in cell biology and animal handling to work as part of a multi-disciplinary and collaborative research environment with a strong emphasis on preclinical studies on CLL. The selected candidate will investigate the contribution of HS1 protein and partners on the physiopathology, development, and therapy of CLL.
