The results to be obtained in cellular models will guide future tests in animal models. This grant is for 6 months, but could be extended if funding is renewed.

The candidate is expected to be proactive and productive, and should have a PhD in Biological Sciences or related areas. Selection of the candidates will be based on previous experience on cell culture (35%), light microscopy (30%), western-blot and RT-PCR (20%), scientific publications related with the area (10%), motivation letter (5%).
