Postdoctoral position on RNA immunity

Posted on May 12,

The Macias' group at the University of Edinburgh (UK) is looking for a post-doctoral researcher to study the molecular relationship between non-coding RNAs and the type I interferon response. The ideal candidate will be a molecular biologist with strong background in RNA biology and approaches to study RNA-protein interactions (RNA-IP, CLIP). Experience with next-generation sequencing analyses and experience with iPSC and hESC cell culture will be positively considered. The candidate will join a lab formed by two post-doctoral scientists, two PhD students and a technician. The candidate is expected to work independently but contribute with ideas and suggestions to the other members of the team.

Candidates are required to send a CV and a cover letter. 

Your skills and attributes for success:

·       PhD in molecular biology
·       Methods to study RNA-protein interactions
·       RNA biology
·       NGS and bioinformatics (desirable)
·       iPSC and hESC cell culture (desirable)
