APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: November 13th 2021
The Human Technopole Foundation is looking for a Scientific Project Manager for the HT Centre of Genomics - Functional Genomics Programme.
The mission of the Center for Functional Genomics will be to elucidate key biological questions including “how the genome is regulated in each cell, tissue and organ in health and disease”, “what are the molecules and networks that drive biological activity in cells, tissues, organs”, and “how to modify genome regulation and genome output in health and diseases”. We will identify and characterize functional and regulatory non-coding genomic element networks in different cells and tissues of the human body, with the goal to identify the grammar of the genome, which will ultimately provide deeper understanding of genome function and enable biology and genomics medicine.
To address these challenges, the Centre develops original technologies to identify and functionally characterize regulatory elements, long non-coding RNA, genome conformation, interactomes of biological molecules in living cells and computational approaches to study genome regulation. These approaches are broadly used to map the function and regulation of human genome in health and diseases across human diversity and ultimately derive actionable targets.
To fulfill its missions, the Center broadly collaborates with other Centers at HT, with international and domestic universities, hospitals and other research organizations and coordinate/participate activity of collaborative consortia.
The Scientific Project Manager, reporting directly to Piero Carninci, the Head of the Centre of Genomics, will provide high level scientific administrative and strategic activities, with both external-and internal-facing duties.
External-facing duties will include:
Internal-facing duties will include:
HT offers a highly collaborative, international culture. The working language at HT will be English. HT will foster top quality, interdisciplinary research by promoting a vibrant environment consisting of independent research groups with access to outstanding graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and core facilities.
HT is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to a leading, internationally competitive, research organisation and seeks to promote a collegial and open atmosphere. The compensation package granted will be internationally competitive and comprise pension scheme, medical and other social benefits, as well the financial support for relocation and installation, including the family.
The Human Technopole Foundation is based in Milan.
Please apply sending a CV and motivation letter in English as well as the name and contact details of at least 2 potential referees.
For specific enquires concerning the role only, please contact Piero Carninci, Head of the Center of Genomics: email@example.com (this email address should not be used to send applications).
