Post-doctoral position in S. cerevisiae research (posted 13 December 2021)

De Wulf lab, University of Trento, Italy

Description: The De Wulf lab at the Department of Cellular, Computational and Integrative Biology (CIBIO), University of Trento, Italy, is looking for an outstanding, highly motivated post-doctoral scientist to study the biological activity of oncogenic kinetochore kinase Rio1. The research will aim to understand how this kinase regulates the chromatin at centromeres and pericentromeres to ensure correct levels of centromeric RNAs, required for faithful kinetochore recruitment. Candidates with expertise in yeast genetics, cell and molecular biology are encouraged to apply. Experience with live-cell fluorescence imaging is greatly appreciated. For publications related to the topic: Bock LJ et al (2012) Nature Cell Biology, Iacovella MG et al (2015) Nature Communications, Iacovella MG et al (2018) Nucleic Acids Research, Berto G et al (2019) Current Genetics. More details of currently submitted work and of the project itself will be provided upon request.

Position overview: The candidate should hold a recent PhD degree and a good publication record (at least one first-author publication in a reputable peer-reviewed journal). S/he must be motivated to excel in science, be curious, open-minded, and pro-active.

The lab is located in the city of Trento (150K inhabitants), near lakes and mountains, and lies close to Bolzano, Verona, and Venice.

Trento University is top 3-ranked in Italy, and CIBIO is the nr. 1 department of biology in Italy. State-of-the art equipment and facilities are available in our lab and in the department.
