Open positions for Ph.D and Post-docs as computational biologists in Pasini's lab
We are looking for computational scientists that are planning to pursue either a Ph.D. or post-doc training working on an ERC funded project in our laboratory located at the Department of Experimental Oncology of the European Institute of Oncology in Milan (Italy). The project will focus on different aspects of the function of Polycomb Group proteins and other chromatin modifying activities in relation to their role in regulating cellular identity in the development of adult tissues.
The candidates will be in charge of computational analysis and data management related to the project. She/he will directly interact with the wet scientists working in our laboratory while working embedded in the community of computational biologists present at our institution. The work will involve the analysis of sequencing data produced with cutting edge technologies to study gene expression and chromatin environment including data produced on rare cell populations and single cells. The applicants must have a good knowledge of programming in python/perl/java along with strong statistical background and performing analysis in R platform. A biological background is also recommended however it’s not mandatory for application.
Each applicant should submit a full CV (with a detailed description of her/his background, expertise, achievements and publication records) together with a letter of intent and at least two contacts for recommendations (for a post-doc position). Competitive salary will be offered based on the experience of the candidate.
