The Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research is looking for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in RNA Modification and Epigenetics to join Professor Yang Shi’s research group. This is an exciting opportunity to join the world-leading institute and investigate newly identified RNA m6A methyltransferases.
As Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Modification and Epigenetics, you will analyse RNA m6A methyltransferases, using biochemical, molecular and genetic approaches to investigate their functions and mechanisms of action in cell lines and model organisms. You will contribute directly to scientific discussions with members of the group and collaborators to develop the project and future research. You will assist in the dissemination of findings through writing manuscripts and work towards publishing your results in international journals. You will also use your expertise to supervise and train junior staff in chromatin and cancer biology.
You will have a PhD/DPhil (or close to completion) in a relevant field and previous laboratory experience relevant to the project. It is essential that you have a significant background in RNA biochemistry. You will have a strong publication record, such as first-author publications in internationally recognised journals. You will also have excellent written and verbal communication skills, and attention to detail.
