Laboratorio di Neurofisiologia, Dipartimento di Medicina Sperimentale, Scuola di Scienze Mediche Farmaceutiche, Università di Genova
POSITION Assistant professor in neurophysiology (RTDA-BIO09), University of Genoa, Italy.

DURATION: 1st March 2023-28th February 2026

DESCRITPION: The position is funded within the PNRR-PE Neuroscience project – A multiscale integrated approach to the study of the nervous system in health and disease- MNESYS.
The central theme of the research activity is the elucidation of the molecular mechanisms underlying physiological and pathological processes of neurodevelopment and neurotransmission. The core of the project is on the role of Autophagy in the regulation of synaptic activity and in the pathophysiology of neurodevelopmental disorders. A multiple level investigation, from the single synapse to the complexity of the neuronal network is used combining live imaging approaches, biochemistry, proteomics and functional studies on animal models and iPSCs-derived neurons.

REQUIREMENT: The ideal candidate is a highly motivated person holding a PhD degree in Neuroscience or related subjects, capable of autonomous organizational and experimental activity and willing to work in a team. Previous experience in the fields of cellular/molecular biology techniques including neuronal cultures, iPSC generation and differentiation and advanced microscopy is appreciated.

LOCATION: Laboratory of Neurophysiology at the Department of Experimental Medicine-, in the group of prof. Anna Fassio ( The laboratory resides downtown in the San Martino area within the School of Medicine, where also the Ospedale Policlinico San Martino-IRCCS in Neuroscience and Oncology and the Center of Synaptic Neuroscience of the Italian Institute of Technology are located. The presence of these three entities contributes to a dynamic scientific environment and provides access to state-of- the art facilities.
