Research Assistant/Associate in RNA Biology and Genomics

The RNA Biology research unit, headed by Dr. Eric Lécuyer, seeks to recruit an experienced and highly motivated research assistant/associate to study the biological functions and mechanisms of RNA intracellular transport. Our laboratory employs a combination of biochemistry, molecular biology, 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 involving both academic (e.g. ENCODE/ENCORE consortium) and private sector partnerships. 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 graduate studies in biology, biochemistry, genetics 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 provide a cover letter detailing your qualifications and an updated CV, including the names and contact information of two referees to The salary will be commensurate with experience.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, however Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Only candidates with strong academic track records will be considered.
