Post-doc position in Immunology and Epigenetics of cancer Italian Institute for Genomic Medicine (IIGM) & IRCCS FPO Candiolo

Pubblicato: 08.07.2024
Chiusura: —

The Giovanni Armenise-Harvard laboratory of Immunity and Cancer at the Italian Institute for Genomic Medicine (IIGM) and at the IRCCS FPO Candiolo (Turin) Italy, is seeking for a highly motivated Postdoc in Immunology and Epigenetics.

Research: The lab addresses fundamental aspects of immune responses, related to memory T cell differentiation and long-term protective immunity. This research aims to understand how T lymphocytes integrate complex environmental stimuli and translate these signals into specific epigenetic and differentiation programs, which specify T cell fate commitment and function. The research’s goal is to use this knowledge to develop novel strategies for the prevention and treatment of cancer, immunotherapy and vaccine development.

To achieve these goals, we combine a variety of approaches, genetic and genomic techniques, including high throughput cell-based assays, multiparametric flowcytometry, single cell multi-omics and epigenetics tools, in the context of human cancer biology.

Qualifications and requirements:
• Strong background and experience in immunology, molecular biology, or epigenetics
• First-authored publications in peer-reviewed journals are preferred
• Good communication skills and self-motivation
• Proficiency in English
• Communication skills and team work attitude are important requirement.

The main goal of IIGM (https://www.iigm.it) and FPO IRCCS Candiolo is to foster and develop excellence in human genomic research and education, with special reference to genomic variability and immunology, with a strong focus on cancer. The institutes provide high-level scientific education for students and post-doctoral fellows, and access to state-ofthe-art research facilities and international networks.

To apply for this position please submit a cover letter (in English) describing research experience, interests, motivation, CV and contact information of two references to:
