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, Drosophila 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.
Applicants should have completed graduate studies in biology, biochemistry, genetics, genomics 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.
Full-time position (35 hours/week); fixed-term contract for two (2) years, renewable. The IRCM offers a competitive range of benefits. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
Available: Immediately, until filled.
