A 3-year postdoctoral fellowship is available from October 1st, 2019 in the lab of Dr. Luca Scorrano at VIMM (www.vimm.it) to study the role of the mitochondria-shaping protein Opa1 in cancer.
The successful candidate with be part of an ongoing effort to identify and target features caused by Opa1 overexpression in cancer. The recruited postdoc will use unbiased approaches (RNAseq, proteomics, and metabolomics) and screenings to elucidate Opa1 oncogenic signatures in cellular cancer models. In parallel, s/he will use already generated mouse models to understand if and how certain cancers are addicted to Opa1.
