Postdoctoral position available on DNA damage and CRC in Fabrizio d’Adda di Fagagna’s group at IFOM, Milan, Italy
Fabrizio d’Adda di Fagagna group in IFOM, Milan (Italy), has an opening for a motivated research fellow at the postdoctoral level supported by an AIRC Special Program 5x1000 on colorectal cancer (CRC) metastases. We previously established the engagement of the DNA damage response machinery in cancer (Di Micco et al. Nature 2006, Nuciforo et al. Carcinogenesis 2007, Di Micco et al. Nature Cell Biology 2011). More recently, we developed and implemented innovative tools to map and visualize DNA lesions in cells and tissues (Iannelli et al. Nature Communications 2017, Galbiati et al. Aging Cell 2017). The mission of this project is to study the interplay between DNA damage, DNA damage response activation and CRC metastases.
The candidate should be strongly motivated, independent and preferably with a knowledge of colorectal cancer biology.
A medical background would set the applicant high on the candidates list.
The position is initially for two years, renewable.
A competitive salary will be commensurate with skills and experience.
Position is open immediately and will close when the candidate has been identified.
IFOM is a leading biomedical research institution in Italy and Europe, providing a stimulating and supporting international environment.
Applications should include a CV with contact details of referees and a brief statement outlining key areas of expertise and motivations to fabrizio.dadda[@]ifom.eu.
