Technician position in molecular biology in neurodevelopmental disorders.

A technician position (fixed term contract) is available at the Brain Development and Disease Research Line of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genoa, Italy coordinated by Dr. Laura Cancedda.
Our goal is to understand the molecular determinants of neuronal circuit development in health and disease (Deidda et al., Nature Neuroscience, 2015; Deidda et al., Nature Medicine, 2015; Szczurkowska et al., Brain., 2018, Naskar et al., Nat Comm. 2019; Savardi et al, Chem 2020).

In particular, this position is funded by a company specialized in gene therapy and the candidate will investigate on translational approaches for neurodevelopmental disorders.

The ideal applicant has strong experience in iPSc culture and their neuronal differentiation.
