Postdoctoral scientist in RNA research

Posted on November 24,

We are a lively and dynamic RNA group at the interface of basic and medical research. We have an opening for a creative post-doc to pursue a project analyzing novel mechanisms underlying RNA – protein interactions in cellular stress responses.

We offer an exciting project based on the recent discovery of RNA-binding proteins with surprising mechanisms in cellular stress responses (Backlund et al. 2020). The successful candidate will be able to work independently in a mentored setting within an RNA-focused group of the Molecular Medicine Partnership Unit, a joint venture of the Medical Faculty of Heidelberg University and EMBL.

You will have a strong background in RNA research and will have published as first authors in international scientific journals. You will want to work independently, develop your career within a highly interactive and fun group of colleagues, and you will enjoy mentoring post-graduate students.
