Open Position

 

RNA turnover and cancer

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Torben Heick Jensen at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, Denmark in collaboration with the laboratory of Jean-Christophe Marine, VIB-KU Leuven Center for Cancer Biology, Belgium. We are looking for a candidate with an interest in the biogenesis and turnover of non-coding RNA and its relationship to cancer initiation, progression and maintenance. Focus will be on cancer-induced perturbation of RNA decay complexes and the resulting expression of tumor addictive transcripts; their biogenesis, accumulation in mechanisms underlying tumor addiction.

 

The Jensen laboratory consists of a dynamic mix of experimental and computational biologists aiming to examine the production, turnover and possible functional impact of eukaryotic transcriptomes. Candidates trained in genetics, biochemistry, cell biology and/or computational biology are encouraged to apply.

 

The position is for two years with possible extension. Tax deduction benefits are available for non-Danish individuals. To apply submit letter of motivation, CV and 3 references before July 1st 2018.
