Vacancies - 12 Marie Curie Fellowships in the PERFUME Initial Training Network

Peroxisomes: key to cell performance and health

The Marie Curie Initial Training Network PERFUME (PERoxisome FUnction, MEtabolism) is opening 12 Marie Curie fellowship positions for Early Stage Researchers. PERFUME is funded by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme under Grant Agreement No. 316723.

The PERFUME program is an interdisciplinary and intersectoral initial stage training network (ITN) at the interface of medicine, plant and fungal biology, devoted to understanding the principles of peroxisome biology. Peroxisomes are ubiquitous organelles that are essential in man. Relative to other organelles, still little is known on their biogenesis and function

PERFUME brings together a team comprising of top scientists from the fields of cell biology, biochemistry, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, mathematical modeling, bioinformatics and protein structure analysis. The training schemes include specific research projects, a wide range of dedicated courses and workshops organized by the academic and industrial partners of the Network.
