APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: July 7th 2022
Human Technopole (HT) is a new interdisciplinary life science research institute, created and supported by the Italian Government, with the aim of developing innovative strategies to improve human health. HT is composed of five Centres: Computational Biology, Structural Biology, Genomics, Neurogenomics and Health Data Science. The Centres work together to enable interdisciplinary research and to create an open, collaborative environment that will help promote life science research both nationally and internationally.
The Human Technopole Foundation is looking for a Senior Manager of the CEll REference BRain Atlas (CEREBRA) Scientific Support unit for the HT Centre for Neurogenomics.
The successful candidate, reporting to the Head of the Centre for Neurogenomics, will be responsible for developing, maintaining and constantly evolving a research support unit performing the systematic integration of both publicly available and in-house generated single cell resolved omics datasets (including spatial omics) of the human brain and brain organoids into a Reference Atlas. Through iterative cycles of update and improvement, this Atlas will constitute a key continuously evolving resource to enable the streamlined interpretation of experimental results interrogating developmental trajectories and disease phenotypes. Working in close cooperation with a vibrant community of computational biologists from the Neurogenomics Centre, the Image Analysis Facility and the Computational Biology Centre, they will also integrate manually curated endophenotypes, including single cell expression values, differentially expressed genes, and developmental trajectories, cell populations data (relative abundance, cell type-specific eQTL) and metadata (clinical phenotype, genetic background) for the creation and continuous adaptation of an easy-to-use interface to connect and explore Neurogenomics datasets.
HT offers a highly collaborative, international culture. The working language at HT will be English. HT will foster top-quality, interdisciplinary research by promoting a vibrant environment consisting of independent research groups with access to outstanding graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and core facilities.
HT is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to a leading, internationally competitive, research organization and seeks to promote a collegial and open atmosphere. The compensation package granted will be internationally competitive and comprise a pension scheme, medical and other social benefits, and support for relocation and installation.
