The ARCH (Age-Related Changes in Hematopoiesis) Project is a network of highly qualified experts in experimental hematology created to decipher the causal relationship between the physiological changes in the hematopoietic system during lifespan and the parallel occurrence of specific age-related hematological diseases (pediatric, adult, elderly), with the aim of developing novel targeted therapeutic treatments. ARCH research will integrate the results from complementary model systems (cell lines, mouse models, cells from leukemia patients) and will deploy a large panel of cutting-edge technologies, such as single cell genomics, epigenomics, genome editing and organoid cultures, in a multi-faceted effort. The ARCH ambitious goal requires scientific and financial resources beyond the capability of a single group. To reach this goal, the ARCH network brings together 15 beneficiaries (12 academic, 2 SMEs and 1 private research institute) and 5 Partner organisations (3 academic, 1 SME and 1 patients’ association). Two European Consortia are present through their Italian nodes.
ARCH will recruit 10 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) who will be all enrolled in PhD programmes. Besides research laboratory work, the ARCH training programme includes scientific, technical and transferable skills courses that will provide ESRs with a solid scientific culture and with awareness of responsible research and innovation issues. The unique combination of scientific excellence, quality of the educational programme and experience in translating basic research into exploitable results will provide ARCH with the real possibility of positively contributing to the enhancement of European competitiveness in the development of innovative, targeted drugs/treatments for hematological diseases, which currently represent a serious socio-economical problem for the European health care system.
The project will be coordinated by Prof. Antonella Ronchi at the University of Milano-Bicocca – Department of Biotechnology and Biosciences (Italy).

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme offers highly competitive and attractive salary and working conditions. Exact salary will be confirmed upon appointment. In particular it consists of:
It must be noted that the living allowance is a gross EU contribution to the salary costs of the researcher. Consequently, the net salary results from deducting all compulsory (employer/employee) social security contributions as well as direct taxes (e.g. income tax) from the gross amounts. The rate indicated here is for researchers devoting themselves to their project on a full-time basis.
The mobility and family allowance is a fixed amount, regardless of the country of recruitment, and may be taxable depending on the country in which the researcher is recruited.
For more details please see Sections 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3 of the Guide for Applicants to H2020-MSCA-ITN-2018.
