NSF-funded Postdoctoral Position to Investigate Meiotic Gene Regulation in Fission Yeast

The Wise lab in the Center for RNA Molecular Biology at Case Western Reserve University is inviting applications for a postdoctoral scientist to spearhead our efforts to understand the molecular basis of changes in RNA metabolism during the transition from proliferative growth to differentiation and at successive stages of meiosis in fission yeast.  Previous work has uncovered two unusual regulatory strategies that come into play sequentially as this simple developmental program unfolds:

  • Increased accumulation of early meiotic mRNAs driven by enhanced stability due to sequestration of an RNA binding protein that targets them for destruction in mitotic cells
  • Increased accumulation of middle meiotic mRNAs driven by enhanced co-transcriptional processing mediated by a transcription factor regulated by the early mechanism

The project will utilize a combination of genome-wide and traditional molecular genetic approaches to dissect the cascade of events through which these interconnected regulatory strategies ensure proper temporal control of gene expression. The Center for RNA Molecular Biology provides a stimulating and highly interactive research environment in which trainees benefit from the high concentration of faculty, students and postdocs with relevant expertise.

The ideal candidate will hold a recently awarded Ph.D. in Molecular Biology or a related discipline and have laboratory experience working with RNA. A strong track record of self-directed research and excellent technical and communication skills are also essential. Expertise in bioinformatics and/or genetic manipulation is highly desirable. The position is available immediately at a salary commensurate with experience.

Interested individuals should send a cover letter including a description of research interests and career goals, as well as a detailed CV and the names of three references (with e-mail addresses and phone numbers) to Jo Ann Wise, preferably via e-mail (jaw17@nullcase.edu).

We are seeking a highly motivated and independent postdoctoral fellow with significant and published experience in the area of bioinformatics. The position will be part of a bridging unit between the division of “RNA Biology & Cancer” at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg and the division of “Cancer Research” at the DKTK partner site at the University Hospital Freiburg – both headed by Dr. Sven Diederichs.

The core project of the postdoctoral fellow will be the integration of sequencing data from own as well as published sources to answer meaningful and fundamental questions in the area of cancer biology and gene regulation. We believe that the vast resources supplied by consortia like TCGA or ICGC (DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq) combined with important and specific questions and functional datasets will allow fundamentally new insights into the interaction and regulation of genes, RNAs and proteins in normal and malignant cells. Our focus will lie on lung cancer, but pipelines established for lung cancer can then also be exploited for pan-cancer analyses. The postdoctoral fellow will work independently in our group based on his or her expertise and in close collaboration with molecular biologists from the wet lab who will test hypotheses generated from bioinformatical analyses also experimentally. New projects within the focus area of the lab can also be developed and supported to allow the growth into scientific maturity and independence. Additional bioinformatics expertise is available through cooperation partners in Freiburg.

Applicants should be highly motivated and independent bioinformaticians to lead research projects on the molecular aberrations in lung cancer with creativity, ambition and team spirit. Experience in bioinformatical sequence analysis and integration is a prerequisite. The applicant should work efficiently, goal-oriented and accurate, have a deep interest in research and must be proficient in English. This fully funded position will be granted initially for two years with the possibility of extension. If you are interested, please submit your CV, publication list, university degrees, contact details for at least three references as well as a description of your bioinformatical experience by email to s.diederichs[at]dkfz.de.
