The team "DNA Recombination, Replication and Genome Stability" is seeking for a highly motivated postdoc to join our team in the Genome Integrity, RNA and Cancer unit research. We are engaged in understanding how replication stress is resolved in space and time using the fission yeast S. pombe as a model organism. The project will combine genetics, live cell imaging and genomics to understand how RNA Binding Proteins contribute to the resolution of replication stress. (Ait Saada et al. Mol Cell 2017, Teixeira-Silva et al. Nature Communications 2017, Hardy et al. PLoS Genetics 2019, Ait Saada et al. Life Science Alliance 2019).
The ideal candidate will hold a PhD, have prior research experience in molecular genetics, and a track record of peer-reviewed publications. Experiences in genomics, yeast genetics, RNA biology, and fluorescence microscopy are desirable but not required. The position is funded for 2 years and will start early 2021. The applicant should have the possibility to apply for individual fellowship.
Application, including a cover letter giving a brief description of previous achievement, a CV and at least one recommendation letter should be sent as a single pdf file to email@example.com before November 30th , 2020.
