Bioinformatics Analyst in RNA Biology and Genomics

The RNA Biology research unit, headed by Dr. Eric Lécuyer, seeks to recruit a highly motivated bioinformatics analyst to study the biological functions and mechanisms of RNA intracellular transport. 

Our laboratory employs a combination of approaches in molecular cell biology, functional genomics and bioinformatics 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 with both academic (e.g. ENCODE/ENCORE consortium) and private sector partners, with a strong perspectives for the creation of start-up ventures. The candidate will work in close supervision with Drs. Jérôme Waldispühl et Mathieu Blanchette, expect collaborators in the fields of bioinformatics and machine learning.

Available: Immediately, until filled.

Applicants should have completed undergraduate level training in computer science, bioinformatics or a complementary field with a strong programing component. Moreover, individuals with experience in genomics/transcriptomics, molecular biologie and/or biochemistry will be given strong consideration.

How to Apply:
Please send a cover letter, academic transcripts and an updated CV (including the names and contact information of three referees) by email to 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.
