Eurac Research is looking for a
Student in Biological Sciences (mitochondrial function)
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.
In the research field “Mitochondrial function in health and disease” we invite applications for an internship for a Master thesis preparation for a project investigating mitochondrial dysfunction in experimental models of Parkinson’s disease (e.g. induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived neurons from Parkinson’s disease patients). The internship starts in March 2019 and lasts 12 months.
The main tasks include:
· generation, culturing and differentiation of human iPSCs into neurons
· assessment of mitochondrial function in these cellular models including high-resolution respirometry, mitochondrial ROS production, mitochondrial membrane potential
· final stages of the studies
· 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
· internship compensation
