RNA Biology and Genomics

The RNA Biology research unit, headed by Dr. Eric Lécuyer, seeks to recruit a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to study the biological functions and mechanisms of RNA intracellular transport. Our laboratory employs a combination of biochemistry, molecular biology, Drosophila genetics, genomics and high-throughput cell biological approaches to define the impact of RNA localization on cellular organization and disease. Our team is highly multi-disciplinary and actively involved in major collaborative efforts implicating both academic (e.g. ENCODE/ENCORE consortium) and private sector partnerships, with the possibility of participating in the creation of start-up spinoff companies. The person recruited for this position will work to develop molecular and functional genomic assays and help define RNA regulatory pathways.

Available: Immediately, until filled.

Applicants should have completed (or be on the verge of completing) doctoral studies in biology, biochemistry, genetics, genomics, bioinformatics or a related discipline. Candidates should have significant experience with standard molecular/cellular biology and biochemical approaches, with a particular emphasis on in RNA-related experimentation. Moreover, individuals with experience in genomics/transcriptomics approaches and associated bio-informatics/statistical analyses methodologies will be given strong consideration.

How to Apply:
Please send a cover letter and CV (including the names and contact information of three referees) by email to eric.lecuyer@ircm.qc.ca. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
