Postdoctoral Opportunity: Identification of point mutation to rescue defective cystic fibrosis gene
Institute of Biophysics, National Research Council of Italy - Trento, Italy

Starting: January 1, 2019

At the Institute of Biophysics of CNR (, we are looking for a bright and enthusiastic individual who is interested in CRISPR, GFP-based biosensors, live cell fluorescence and microfluidics.

This interdisciplinary project aims at identifying CFTR point mutation able to reestablish the correct level of chloride transport. The project combines CRISPR-based genome editing, biosensor microscopy and microfluidics in collaboration with Prof. A. Cereseto ( and the company MicroFabSolutions (

This position requires PhD level training in biophysics, biotechnology, or similar disciplines. Previous experience with live cell microscopy, CRISPR technology or microfluidocs engineeering is desirable. The successful applicant will join a collaborative research environment.
