EARLY-STAGE RESEARCHER AND POST-DOC RESEARCHER WITH BIOTECHNOLOGY EXPERIENCE NEW!!

The MOLECULAR and GENETIC EPIDEMIOLOGY Unit, headed by Dr Alessio G. Naccarati, is seeking a highly motivated early-stage biotechnologist and a Post-Doc biotechnologist with a strong background in DNA and RNA sequencing.
The host institution, the Italian Institute for Genomic Medicine (IIGM, www.iigm.it), is located at the FPO IRCCS Candiolo Cancer Institute, (Turin), Italy. The main goal of IIGM is to foster and develop excellence in translational medicine, immunology, genomic research, and education, with a strong focus on cancer. The institute provides high-level scientific education and access to state-of-the-art research facilities.
The activity of the MOLECULAR and GENETIC EPIDEMIOLOGY Unit is comprehensive and focused on high throughput analysis of non-coding RNAs, mainly by RNAseq and small RNAseq, and the microbiome. The main aim is the identification of potential susceptibility, diagnostic, prognostic and predictive biomarkers in tumor tissues or patient body fluids and the development of related therapeutical/diagnostic markers. For these reasons the Unit is involved in several collaborative studies with different hospitals in the city of Torino and elsewhere.
Research:
We encourage applications from talented biotechnologists who are interested in gaining experience in a growing multidisciplinary and dynamic research environment that integrates molecular biology, epidemiology and computational biology in large-scale omics data.

Position 1: EARLY STAGE RESEARCHER
The candidate will collaborate to evaluate the impact of the transcriptomic profiles and the microbiome composition on the onset and development of colorectal cancer patients, which will be followed over time. In particular, the candidate will collect, process and store biological samples (mainly stool and biological fluids) and library preparation for small RNA sequencing, RNA-sequencing, shotgun metagenomics sequencing and genomic profiling (Trusight Oncology panel).
Required: Master degree in Biotechnology
Offered positions: no. 01 - available immediately, the call will remain open until the position is filled.
Offered contract: 7 months (part-time) fellowship.
Position 2: POST-DOC RESEARCHER
The candidate will collaborate to evaluate the impact of the transcriptomic profiles and the microbiome composition on the onset and development of colorectal cancer patients, which will be followed over time. In particular, the candidate will be involved in recruiting the patients which participate at the Piedmont colorectal cancer screening, collecting, processing and storing biological samples (mainly stool and biological fluids), as well as in collecting clinical information and lifestyle habits in collaboration with SSD Epidemiologia, Screening – CRPT- Presidio Molinette (A.O.U. Città della Salute e della Scienza di Torino).
Required: Master degree in Biotechnology and PhD
Offered positions: no. 01 - available immediately, the call will remain open until the position is filled.
Offered contract: 10 months fellowship.
General qualifications and requirements:
Basic knowledge of molecular biology (i.e, basic background of wet lab, especially for biobanking, library preparation, functional enrichment analyses)
Good communication skills and self-motivation;
Fluent in spoken and written English

Mandatory requirements:
To apply for these position please submit via e-mail to alessio.naccarati@iigm.it the following documents:
