Open positions

Postdoc position at RNA Biology of the Neuron Unit

A Postdoctoral Position is available in the RNA Biology of the Neuron Unit of IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele, headed by Jean-Michel Cioni.

The main focus of our group is to understand the molecular basis underlying mRNA trafficking and translation in neuronal compartments, and how dysregulation of these processes leads to neurological disorders. To achieve our aims, we combine the use of advanced multi-omics approaches and cutting-edge imaging methods in a wide variety of experimental models (xenopus, mice and cell culture systems). The candidate will investigate the roles of membrane trafficking in the regulation of protein synthesis during neuronal development and maintenance.

Candidates will need to have a strong interest in neuroscience, solid analytical and communication skills, as well as technical expertise linked to cellular biology, biochemistry and general molecular biology. Previous experience with animal models is a plus. Candidates will be required to plan and carry out experiments independently and assisting other researchers to foster the laboratory’s research output.
