Job Description

Pasini’s Lab (European Institute of Oncology)

 https://www.ieo.it/en/RESEARCH/People/Researchers/Pasini-Diego/ 

We are looking for computational biologists to work on specific projects with the goal to:

1) Uncover the transcriptional and epigenetic network related to oncogenic WNT signalling in colorectal cancer development.

2) Decrypting the molecular insights of chromatin remodelling activities in tissue homeostasis and cancer development.

Both projects will involve the analysis of next generation sequencing (NGS) data produced with cutting edge technologies including ChIPseq, ATACseq RNAseq and Single Cell transcriptomic form in vivo, ex vivo and patients derived organoids cultures. The positions are open for applicants at any level. Scientists with a good knowledge of programming are particularly encouraged to apply.

About Our Organization

The European Institute of Oncology (IEO) is one of the 13 members of the EU-LIFE alliance to promote excellence in life sciences in Europe (http://eu-life.eu). Our department of Experimental Oncology at IEO (http://www.ieo.it/en/) is embedded in a scientific campus (http://www.ifom-ieo-campus.it) with other two partner institutions, the FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology (IFOM) and the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT). The campus extends over approximately 24,000 squared meters and includes more than 30 research groups and about 400 scientists. All institutions adopt an open structure model that inspires communication and collaboration between research groups 

The campus alos hosts the European School of Molecular Medicine (SEMM, http://www.semm.it). SEMM provides all training and educational activities of the campus, running three international PhD programs and one post-doc program that enroll ~30% foreign scientists, organizing a large number of courses (~25/yr) and international seminars (~80/year).

The three institutions host the work of excellent prestigious laboratories from different disciplines, including molecular oncogenesis, Myc oncobiology, transcriptional control of inflammation , genomic stability, angiogenesis, endocytosis and signaling, and dendritic cell biology.

At IEO is present a Genomic Unit fully equipped with the most up-to-date NGS tecnologies and single cell analysis.
