Postdoctoral positions are available for highly motivated Ph.D. and/or M.D. to work on host cell reprogramming by human tumor viruses. We study the mechanisms by which oncogenic herpesviruses interfere with cellular functions regulated by ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like post-translational modifications and the role of virus-induced DNA damage and genomic instability in oncogenesis.

Protein misfolding and aggregation are associated with various neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, or Huntington's disease. However, whether protein aggregation causes disease or is simply a cellular response to the malfunction of cellular quality control systems is still unclear.
A postdoctoral position is available at the Department of Biotechnology and Bioscience (University of Milano-Bicocca, Milano) for a research project on personalized cancer medicine, in the frame of EU (ITFoC, FlagEra project), and coordinated by Prof. Marco Vanoni.
The project involves analysis of metabolic set-up of patient-derived samples, cell lines, tumor organoids and xenotrasplants of breast cancer patients, integration in computer models to predict drug sensitivity and preclinical validation of model prediction on patient derived cancer model systems.
A 2-year post-doc position offer is available at the lab of Marc Piechaczyk at the CNRS in Montpellier, France.
The post-doc will work in the fields of transcription factors, post-translational modifications and cancer.
There are possibilities of applications to extend of the funding time.
