Nutrient Signaling and Control of Quiescence in Yeast
About the Project
The De Virgilio Lab at the Department of Biology, University of Fribourg, in Switzerland, is interested in nutrient signalling pathways (including, but not limited to TORC1 signaling) and their role in the control of cell proliferation and quiescence in the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast). Our methodological approaches include a combination of genetic, biochemical, and molecular techniques and are aimed at understanding the basic mechanisms that control entry into, survival in, and exit from quiescence. For a more detailed description of our projects, please see: https://www.unifr.ch/bio/en/research/biochemistry/de-virgilio.html
We look for an exceptionally motivated PhD student who holds a Master's degree in Life Sciences (from a higher education institution recognized by the University of Fribourg; https://www.unifr.ch/studies/en/admission/admission-doctorate-post-doctorate ) with substantial wet-lab experience and with interests in the areas outlined above. Excellent communication skills in English are an asset.
· a stimulating, interdisciplinary scientific environment
· state-of-the-art central facilities for proteomic, imaging, and bioinformatic analyses
· a coordinated graduate program (www.unifr.ch/bio/en/studies/graduate-school-fglm/ )
· a competitive Swiss salary
The starting date for this position is earliest October 1st, 2023. Interested candidates should send a SINGLE PDF application including a CV, a brief statement of their research interests, a copy of their MSc diploma, and names of three referees by email to: Claudio.DeVirgilio@unifr.ch
