Fellowship in Computational Immunology
IIGM - Torino
Luigia Pace
Deadline for application
1 Novembre
The Giovanni Armenise-Harvard laboratory of Immune Regulation, at the Italian Institute for
Genomic Medicine (IIGM), in Turin, Italy, is seeking for a highly motivated fellow in
Computational and Systems Immunology.
Research: The lab addresses fundamental aspects of immune responses, related to
memory T cell differentiation and long-term protective immunity. Our research aims to
understand how T lymphocytes integrate complex environmental stimuli into specific
epigenetic and differentiation programs, which specify cell fate commitment and function.
The research’s goal is to use this knowledge to develop novel molecular targets and
strategies for the prevention and treatment of cancer, in the new field of cancer
To achieve these goals, we combine a variety of high throughput approaches, including next
generation sequencing of RNA and epigenetics marks, and single cell transcriptomic

Qualifications and requirements:
• Master or PhD degree in Bioinformatics, Biostatistics or Applied Mathematics
• Experience in computational data analysis (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq)
• Strong programming skills (R, Python, Bash)
• Mastering bioinformatics and biostatistics tools (R, Bioconductor)
• Experience in high-throughput data analysis and multivariate statistics
• First-authored publications in peer-reviewed journals are preferred
• Good communication skills and self-motivation
• Fluent in spoken and written English

IIGM (www.iigm.it) is located at the FPO IRCCS Candiolo Cancer Institute, Candiolo, Turin,
Italy (www.research.fpoircc.it). The main goal of IIGM is to foster and develop excellence in
human genomic research and education, with special reference to genomic variability in
multifactorial diseases, with a strong focus on cancer. The institute provides high-level
scientific education, and access to state-of-the-art research facilities.
