Job Description: AREA IV
ER (Postdoc)

We offer a postdoctoral position at the Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine (http://www.tigem.it/).

The candidate should have a solid background in molecular biology and histology. Good knowledge in English is required. Previous experience in the use of public sequence databases and/or animal breeding and handling would be an advantage. The candidate will be part of the teams of Dr Sandro Banfi (http://www.tigem.it/research/Banfi.htm) and Dr Valeria Marigo (http://www.tigem.it/research/marigo.htm).

Research with Dr Banfi will focus on the identification, expression studies by RNA in situ hybridization and functional characterization in vivo and in vitro of novel retina-specific transcripts ( including non-coding RNAs) involved in eye development and disease. Research with Dr Marigo will focus on functional studies of new transgenic mouse models for the study of the pathogenesis of retinitis pigmentosa. The genetic approach is based on an inducible expression of pathogenetic alleles identified in patients.
