27/09/2021 Post-doc position available in Auricchio's Lab

Sep 27, 2021
Position: Post-doc to develop novel in vivo genome editing approaches for therapy of inherited diseases.

The project founded by the European Union aims to improve in vivo genome editing in liver and retina to obtain persistent hepatic transduction and to counteract autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa. We develop AAV-based strategies for genome editing from in vitro to animal models.

We are seeking enthusiastic and outstanding post-doctoral candidates with a strong background in molecular biology, gene therapy and genome editing. The candidates will have the opportunity to develop novel genome editing strategies and test their therapeutic potential in vivo.
