A postdoctoral or research fellowship (“assegno di ricerca”) is available at the National Research Council in Padova. The fellow will work under my supervision within the Matematical Modeling Group.
The fellow will work within a European consortium, DIRECT, working on the identification and validation of important biomarkers for glycaemic deterioration and treatment response to be used to predict and monitor the effect of therapeutic interventions in subtypes of diabetes with different pathophysiology. The consortium is made of scientists from both research institutions and pharmaceutical companies, and offers an interdisciplinary and formative environment.
The fellow will work mostly on the analysis of omics data (quality-controlled RNA seq, proteomics, metabolomics, or metagenome), with the objective of deriving aggregated measures (mostly for the microbiome data) and capturing their links with longitudinal progression of type 2 diabetes. Her/his ideas will lead the way to deeper or further analyses of the same kind.
A Ph.D., or Master Degree plus at least three years research experience, is beneficial but not required. Applicants should possess a good scientific background in the computational analysis of omics data (as described above) and be passionate about the topic. Other important qualities of the appointee will be motivation, independence, critical thinking and precision.
To apply for this position, please send me (email@example.com) your CV, a brief statement (about half a page) describing your past and future research interests, and the names and contact information for one to three references.
