The laboratories of Prof. Joern Dengjel (Department of Biology, University of Fribourg, Switzerland), Dr. Mattia Zampieri (Institute of Molecular Systems Biology, ETH Zurich, Switzerland) and Prof. Fulvio Reggiori (Department of Biomedical Sciences of Cells and Systems, University Medical Center Groningen, The Netherlands) are looking for excellent and highly motivated candidates to join their groups for the realization of a multidisciplinary and collaborative project, aimed at understanding the contribution of autophagy to cell physiology.
The study will be initially performed in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae before we will transfer key principles to cancer cells. The project is supported by the Sinergia program of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).
