Two Postdoctoral positions

Gene Expression and Muscular Dystrophy lab, Division of Regenerative Medicine, San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Milano, Italy

The general focus of the group centers on facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD). Current projects include analysis of the epigenetic mechanisms regulating the FSHD locus, functional studies on the FSHD mouse model and evaluation of possible therapeutic approaches. The laboratory is strategically located within the scientific environment of the San Raffaele Biomedical Area. There are ample opportunities to interact with other laboratories with interests in regulation of gene expression and disease. The Division of Regenerative Medicine has a strong emphasis on development of novel therapeutic approaches for muscular dystrophy.

Qualifications: PhD with with strong background in molecular biology, genetics, or biochemistry. Expertise in mouse biology using both in vivo and in vitro approaches is highly desirable.

Application details: Candidates should send their application comprising CV, publication list, a one-page research proposal and names of three referees directly via email to Davide Gabellini.
