The Institute for Biomedicine is a young biomedical research institution integrated in an excellent network of international and national partners. It is home to an international and interdisciplinary team of scientists, students and research support staff. Living and working in Bozen/Bolzano allows you to experience the combination of alpine and mediterranean culture and puts you at the heart of one of the most exciting mountain regions in Europe.
The Translational genomics research group invites applications for an internship for a training post lauream or Master thesis preparation for a project characterizing signaling dysfunction in experimental models of Parkinson's disease or epilepsy. The project will include activities with molecular and cell biology techniques in recombinant cells and induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived neurons. The internship starts in March 2020 and lasts 10/12 months.
The main tasks include:
- culturing and differentiation of human iPSCs into neurons
- western blot, ddPCR, functional assay, cell viability assay, kinase assay
- Immunofluorescence, flow cytometry,
- master's degree in science (biology, biotechnology or related fields) or final stages of the studies (graduated not more than 12 months before the start of the internship)
- molecular and cellular biology bases
- good knowledge in English; knowledge of either German or Italian language is an advantage
- well-developed social skills, a hands-on attitude and being able to work in a team
- willing to develop new skills and explore novel ideas
- dedicated work space, young environment and engaged colleagues
- training in a broad range of cell and molecular biology techniques
- possibility to attend in-house training activities
- internship compensation
