PhD student positions at the IMPRS for Molecular Life Sciences in Munich, Germany

The International Max Planck Research School for Molecular Life Sciences: From Biological Structures to Neural Circuits (IMPRS-LS) is a PhD program that brings together two renowned Munich based Max Planck Institutes as well as two leading partner-universities, the LMU and TUM, to deliver first class training for the world‘s most promising young scientists.

Our students and their supervisors strive to uncover molecular mechanisms regulating biological processes, analyze the resulting complex biological systems and decipher the intricate network of neural circuits leading to corresponding behavioral responses.

More than 60 distinguished group leaders actively participate in the PhD program and offer challenging and cutting-edge PhD projects in the following areas:
· Biophysics & Bioimaging
· Computational & Systems Biology
· Gene Regulation & DNA Biology
· Circuit Neuroscience & Neurodegeneration
· Protein Structure & Protein Folding
· Signaling & Immunology

Qualified candidates are invited NOW to apply for the selection 2017/2018. Deadline for application is November 15th, 2017.

All students accepted to the program will receive a generous PhD fellowship covering tuition and living expenses.

Scientific Project Manager at The Centre for Genomic Regulation

We are seeking an enthusiastic Scientific Project Manager to join the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) International and Scientific Affairs (ISA) team. The position is within the framework of two projects funded by the European Commission H2020 Programme. The first project, “Engineering of Mycoplasma pneumoniae as a broad-spectrum animal vaccine” (MycoSynVac)*, is coordinated by Prof Luis Serrano, CRG Director. The project aims to develop a novel veterinary vaccine chassis based on the bacterium Mycoplasma pneumoniae by combining systems and synthetic biology approaches (
The second project, that has just started on May 2017, “Open Responsible research and Innovation to further Outstanding kNowledge” (ORION)*, is coordinated by Dr Michela Bertero, ISA head, and focuses on embedding Open Science in research institutions and funding organizations.

Postdoctoral position in Human Molecular Immunobiology at INGM

Description: 1 junior postdoctoral position in Human Molecular Immunobiology is available starting from July 2017 in the unit of Genome Biology of Dr. Beatrice Bodega at INGM, Milan, Italy. In our lab we are interested in understanding the function of DNA repetitive elements in the epigenetic regulation of the transcriptional response of the cell. DNA repeats cover almost 70% of the human genome, and their function was largely ignored for decades. In particular, Transposable elements (TEs) account for the 45% of the genome, and there are emerging evidences in their involvement in the somatic plasticity of the genome and tissue-specific transcriptional complexity (i.e. ESC, brain).
Among TEs, we are investigating the LINE1 (L1) dynamics in CD4+ T cells different subsets (Naïve, Th1Th2, Th17 and Treg) finding a peculiar transcriptional regulation of TEs in human lymphocytes.
Our research includes molecular approaches as well as human primary cell purification and differentiation systems. Used methods cover the whole field of modern cell and molecular biology/biochemistry such as single cells transcriptional studies, immunofluorescence, biophysical techniques, in vitro chromatin assays, ChIP? and 4C coupled with NGS, etc. The hired candidate will benefit from the possibility to work in close collaboration with all the researchers of the Institute taking part in scientific discussions on a day to-day basis. We expect our new team members to be creative and interested in basic science and novel technologies.

Qualifications: Potential candidates should hold (or about to obtain) a PhD, or three years after degree experience, in molecular and cellular biology. We expect our new team members to be creative and interested in science and in developing novel technologies Previous experience in epigenetics field and immunobiology will be an added value.
Given the collaborative and multidisciplinary nature of the project, good communication and understanding of genome biology are also strongly recommended.

Please apply by sending a letter of motivation describing your interest in this research and past research experiences, a curriculum vitae and names of at least two referees to:

Dr. Beatrice Bodega
Istituto Nazionale di Genetica Molecolare (INGM)
