APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: December 14th, 2022
Human Technopole (HT) is a new interdisciplinary life science research institute created and supported by the Italian government to develop innovative strategies to improve human health. HT comprises five centers: Computational Biology, Structural Biology, Genomics, Neurogenomics, and Health Data Science. The Centers work together to enable interdisciplinary research and to create an open, collaborative environment that will help promote life science research both nationally and internationally.
The Pinheiro Lab in the Centre for Computational Biology at Human Technopole is looking for a Research Technician. The Lab combines theoretical and experimental research to develop a predictive framework for evolutionary processes under ecological complexity. A main theme of the group is the evolution of antibiotic resistance. To address this problem, the Pinheiro Lab will establish a strong dialog between theory and experiments, using theoretical models to inform experimental design and experiments to validate theoretical hypotheses.
The Research Technician will work on different experimental projects the team is involved in, focusing on developing small-scale bacterial culture workflows with a fermenter/bioreactor. The successful candidate will have a strong background in microbiology and will also be experienced in coordinating different projects and supervising other experimental posts.
Importantly, the lab benefits from the experimental and computational infrastructure provided by HT, which involves multiple posts in core bioinformatics units, as well as a team of core wet-lab scientists within the Centre for Computational Biology, exclusively dedicated to generating novel datasets, ranging from single-cell genomics, multi-omics, and spatial tumour profiling. The lab is also supported by the HT High-Throughput Genomics Facility, which generates genomics data, and by the HT Computational Genomics Facility, which provides analysis support with established pipelines. State-of-the-art High-Performance Computing infrastructure and Data Storage support all the computational needs of HT.
The successful candidate will report directly to Dr. Fernanda Pinheiro and will work in close collaboration with members of her team.
Special consideration will be given to candidates who are part of the protected categories list, according to L. 68/99.
Please apply by sending a CV and a detailed motivation letter in English only through the dedicated area below (Apply now) and the name and contact details of at least 3 potential referees.
The remuneration package is internationally competitive and comprise a highly competitive salary and several benefits.
Importantly, international candidates coming to Italy for the first time, or Italian nationals returning after residing abroad, benefit from very attractive income tax benefits.
HT offers a highly collaborative, international culture to 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 employer that fosters diversity and engages systematically to ensure that equal employment opportunities are provided without regard to age, race, creed, religion, sex, disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national or ethnic origin or any other legally recognized status entitled to protection under applicable laws. HT offers attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to a leading, internationally competitive, research organization that promotes a collegial and open atmosphere.
