JOB OPPORTUNITY

Postdoc Position

INSERM / Université Paris-Saclay, France

Applications are invited for a 2-years postdoctoral position in the field of RNA splicing in the laboratory SABNP / University of Paris Saclay, France.

We study the mechanism of pre-mRNA splicing by combining molecular biology, bioinformatics and cell biology.  (EMBO Rep. 2019,  doi: 10.15252/embr.201847604).

The successful applicant will analyse novel interactions among splicing factors involved in the recognition of 3′ splice sites. Interactions will be characterized through biochemical and biophysical analyses. The functional importance of these interactions for splice site selection will be searched for using knock down and CRISPR techniques associated with RNA splicing analyses.

Candidate: The candidate must have done part of his studies in France and have research experience abroad. He/she is an ambitious and highly motivated individual with experience in cell culture, biochemistry and  molecular biology techniques.

Laboratory: The SABNP laboratory is part of the prestigious university Paris-Saclay. The lab focuses its research on the structure and function of RNA:Protein complexes with the aim to foster applications in medicine and biotechnology. This postdoctoral position is funded for two years by the Genopole, a France’s leading biocluster for biotechnologies and research in genomics and genetics.

Gross salary: 3,600 euros
