France has a strong academic tradition and is committed to investing in research and education. Here's what French academics make.
Architecture and Reactivity of RNA; Team “Digital Biology of RNA”
Institut de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire
A post-doc position (18 to 24 months) will be available starting from October 1st 2018 in the team “Digital Biology of RNA” headed by Michael Ryckelynck in IBMC (Strasbourg-France). The team is specialized in the development and the use of droplet-based microfluidics to address biological questions related to the study of gene expression regulation, especially those involving non-coding RNAs.
In this context, we are seeking a highly motivated post-doc to be part of a project aiming at exploiting a new microfluidic-assisted technology recently developed by the team to monitor gene expression and further extend it to the analysis of RNAs while operating at a single-cell resolution. Activities will include molecular biology, purification of biological molecules, droplet-based microfluidics and sequence analysis.
Required knowledge and skills:
The recruited person will have to conduct a research combining molecular biology and microfluidics and aiming at characterizing sub-classes of RNAs in high-throughput regimes and with single-cell resolution. Reaching these goals will require the candidate to have a strong expertise in molecular biology as well as the capacity to work at the interface of biology, microfluidics, chemistry and bioinformatics. In particular, the candidate will have to interact with the other researchers of the team (as well as collaborators) and valorize the data by writing articles on the topics.
Applications (CV, list of publications and 2 references) should be sent to Michael Ryckelynck (email@example.com).
