Postdoctoral position in RNA Biology in Hervé Le Hir’s lab

Destiny of mRNAs & genetic diseases

A postdoctoral position is available in the team of Hervé Le Hir, in the Functional Genomics section of Institut de Biologie de l’ENS in Paris, France.

The team investigates RNA-­protein complexes that dictate the destiny of messenger RNAs, notably their quality control and their cellular localization in different cellular models including human cell lines and differentiating neural stem cells. A particular emphasis is given onto RNA helicases that are molecular motors ensuring RNP complex dynamics. Multiple research approaches are combined, from biochemistry to single molecule biophysics, molecular and cellular biology as well as transcriptomics.

Applicants are expected to have an interest in the molecular and functional characterization of RNA binding proteins and the impact of their dysfunction in genetic diseases. A background in biochemistry, molecular genetics or bioinformatics with an expertise in RNA biology will be appreciated. The position is open for two years with possible extension. Expected starting date preferentially before 2018.

Applications should include a detailed curriculum vitae, a description of current projects and career goals as well as contact information of three references and sent to Hervé Le Hir :
