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 ( http://www.ibf.cnr.it/), 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 (www.cibio.unitn.it/97/laboratory-of-molecular-virology) and the company MicroFabSolutions (www.microfabsolutions.com).
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.
Applications should be sent by email to Dr. Arosio at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants are requested to send a CV, representative publications, and names and contact information of three references.
Informal inquiries are welcome and do not hesitate to pass on this announcement.
