A postdoctoral position is available in a newly established group of Dr Lovorka Stojic at the Barts Cancer Institute in London to work on the role of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in genome stability and cancer.
The project is aimed at identifying mechanisms by which specific lncRNAs safeguard genome integrity and determine the contribution of lncRNA dysregulation to genome instability in cancer. Using cutting-edge quantitative proteomics, genomics and imaging, we aim to functionally dissect a subset of lncRNA genes, in order to identify lncRNA molecular interactors and examine their functional relevance in pathways governing genome stability.
This project is based on our prevoius work, mainly: Stojic et al., NAR, 2018; Stojic et al., bioRxiv, 2019.

Skils required: PhD in biology or related life science field. Significant laboratory experience in cell and molecular biology is essential. Experience in the field of RNA biology, genomics and bioinformatics is strongly desired.
Interested candidates should send their CV, cover letter and the names of three referees to
Deadline: 31st September 2019.
