About This PhD Project

Project Description

The Laboratory of Stem Cells and Diseases (STEMD-Lab) is seeking a highly motivated candidate to develop a project based on the use of human embryonic stem cells (hES) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to derive glucose sensitive differentiated cell types (i.e. beta-cells, hepatocytes and adipocytes). The proposed project is aimed at studying the epigenetic and transcriptional role played by key transcription factors and epigenetic modifiers in the regulation of glucose homeostasis in physiological and pathological conditions as well as upon exposure to extreme environmental stimuli.

Priority will be given to students with good communication skills, strong self-motivation, ability to work in a team, and desire to carry out research in an interdisciplinary and international environment . A strong background in cellular and molecular biology and excellent academic qualifications are mandatory.

Applications including a CV, a one page statement on your motivation, past research experience and contact for two academic references should be sent to:
