ERC-funded Postdoctoral Scientist fellowship in 


Laboratory of Angiogenesis and Redox Metabolism 

Dept. of Biology, University of Padua, Italy 

The laboratory on Prof. Massimo Santoro is seeking post-doctoral fellows to study redox homeostasis and metabolism in cancer (Panieri and Santoro, 2016). Our team has recently identified novel metabolic pathways that are crucial for tumor survival and cancer progression (more information available upon request). Such studies offer unique opprotunities for designing new therapeutic strategies against metastasis and cancer spreading. 

The candidate must be a highly motivated researcher with a PhD in a relevant discipline as well as having some experience in genetic, molecular, and/or cellular biology methods. The applicant must have a good publication record in peer-reviewed international journals (including at least one paper as a first author in top-journal) and must be capable of working in a team as well as independently. Excellent communication skills in spoken and written English are required. 

We offer a dynamic work environment in a stimulating scientific surrounding with a young, enthusiastic, motivated team along the opportunity to contribute to high-impact projects. We offer a strong competitive salary (European Marie Curie Fellow range) as well as contributions to health and retirement funds. 


Please send your CV, letter of motivation, and the contact information of at least three references to Prof. Santoro at
