TIGEM: position for a PhD Student

Unraveling the molecular bases of inherited retinal disorders

Inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) represent one of the most frequent causes of genetic blindness in the western world and an important burden for national health systems. The most frequent and severe forms are Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA), macular dystrophies (MD) and cone and cone-rod dystrophies (CD and CRD, respectively). All of these conditions display a very high genetic heterogeneity with over 150 responsible genes identified to date.

A junior research position (one year, renewable) supported by Fondazione Pisa is available at the CNR Institute of Genetic and Biomedical Research, Pisa, Italy.
The project will be carried out in the laboratory of Dr. Antonio Musio and is focused on the role of cohesin complex in human diseases. The ideal candidate is an enthusiastic and committed young researcher with experience in cell and molecular biology and genome-wide data analysis.
Informal enquiries and applications can be sent to Dr. Antonio Musio ( Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots.
