Job Opportunities


Research Associate - Regulation of gene expression through long non-coding RNA in C. elegans

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Professor Eric Miska. We are looking for an outstanding individual to lead a research project to uncover the role of long non-coding RNAs in development and physiology of C. elegans using molecular genetics techniques. Long non-coding RNAs have not been explored in this organism.

Substantial prior experience with long non-coding RNA biology in mammalian cells is essential. Also essential is a proven record of CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing experience in mammalian cells. We are particularly interested in applicants who have prior experience with X inactivation in mammals. Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant subject.
