Internship for master’s degree

A position for curricular internship of Master’s degree is available from February 2021. The topic of the internship will focus on the in vitro production of 3D constructs starting from decellularized diaphragm, muscle cells and neuronal cells with the aim of studying the role of the neuronal
component in diaphragmatic development and regeneration. The project is part of a broader vision of novel tissue engineering strategies for the treatment of congenital malformations.

The internship must take place at the Tissue Engineering laboratory (PI: Martina Piccoli) at Istituto di Ricerca Pediatrica Città della Speranza, Corso Stati Uniti 4, Padova.


Tissue Engineering Lab

Research Fellow position is available in the team of Martina Piccoli, the Tissue Engineering Lab at Istituto di Ricerca Pediatrica Città della Speranza. The candidate will have the opportunity to develop  innovative tissue engineering strategies and approaches for the treatment of skeletal muscle congenital malformations. The project he/she will develop is focused on diaphragmatic regeneration,  in vivo application in small and large animal models, and 3D bioprinting of diaphragm-like  constructs.

The applicant should have a degree in biological or biomedical sciences. Skills in molecular and  cellular biology are required. Familiarity with murine models is desirable.

The applicant should be an excellent team worker, fluent in spoken and written English. We offer a  young and dynamic research environment, and a chance to improve knowledge and skills in highly innovative biomedical field.
