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:
1. A motivation letter (in English) describing past and present research experiences and interests, specifying the Position you are applying for
2. An updated Curriculum Vitae
EARLY-STAGE RESEARCHER WITH MATHEMATICS/PHYSICS BACKGROUND NEW!!
The Statistical Inference and Biological Modeling laboratory, headed by Prof. A. Pagnani, is seeking a highly motivated early-stage researcher with a strong background in mathematics/physics. The host institution Italian Institute for Genomic Medicine (IIGM, www.iigm.it) is located at the FPO IRCCS Candiolo Cancer Institute, (Turin), Italy (www.research.fpoircc.it). 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 core activity of the Statistical Inference and Computational Biology unit is the development of statistical mechanics-inspired computational techniques for the analysis of experimental datasets and in particular for inference problems in complex biological systems.

Research: We encourage applications from talented scientists, who are interested in gaining experience in a growing multidisciplinary and dynamic research environment that integrates expertise in hard sciences such as Physics and Mathematics, computational biology in the context of large-scale inference from biological sequence data.

Position: The candidate will learn how to combine a variety of advanced statistical methods tools specifically tailored to the problem of analyzing large datasets of sequencing data of variants from panning experiments with the final goal to produce a statistical model of the underlying variant selection process.

Qualifications and requirements:
- Ph.D. degree in Mathematics, Physics or related fields;
- Strong programming skills (Python, Julia, C, C++);
- Experience in multivariate statistics and inference;
- Good communication skills and self-motivation;
- Fluent in spoken and written English

Mandatory requirements:
To apply for this position please submit:
1. A cover letter (in English) describing research experiences, interests, motivation
2. An updated Curriculum Vitae.

Offered contract: 8 months fellowship.
Offered positions: no. 01 - available immediately, the call will remain open until the position is filled.
Please send your application, recommendation letter (if available) and curriculum vitae to:
