Job description


The Human Technopole Foundation is looking for a Junior Research Administrator for the HT Centre of Genomics - Functional Genomics Programme.

The mission of Functional Genomics in the Centre will be to elucidate key questions including “how the genome is regulated in each cell, tissue and organ in health and disease”, “what are the molecules and networks that drive biological activity in cells, tissues, organs”, and “how to modify genome regulation and genome output in health and diseases”. In particular, we will identify and characterize functional and regulatory non-coding genomic element networks in different cells and tissues of the human body, with the goal to identify the grammar of the genome, which will ultimately provide deeper understanding of genome function and enable genomics medicine.

In order to address these challenges, the Centre will develop original technologies to identify and functionally characterize regulatory elements, non-coding RNA (with focus on lncRNAs), the genome conformation and interactomes of biological molecules in living cells. These approaches will be broadly used to map the function and regulation of human genome in health and disease across human diversity.

The Junior Research Centre Administrator, reporting directly to Piero Carninci, the Head of the Centre of Genomics, will provide high level scientific administrative-secretarial activities.
