Postdoctoral position in Genomics/Computational Biology

Our colleague Vicent Pelechano is looking for a postdoc in Genomics/Computational Biology to join his team at Karolinska Institutet – SciLifeLab.

The available postdoctoral position concerns developing and applying novel genomic and computational approaches to study ribosome dynamics and RNA metabolism, and its impact to cell-to-cell phenotypic heterogeneity. The candidate will focus on the computational analysis of newly developed methods to study ribosome dynamics, mRNA degradation and tRNA processing (e.g. Pelechano et al. Cell 2015). The candidate is expected to contribute to our common goal of understanding how RNA biology and post-transcriptional regulation contributes to the appearance of differences across clonal populations of cells.

The application deadline is October 2nd and you can find more information about this job here:

Postdoctoral position in RNA biology and Genomics in the Pelechano lab

Our collaborators in the Pelechano lab (Karolinska Institutet) are seeking for a postdoctoral fellow in RNA biology and genomics. The available postdoctoral position concerns developing and applying novel genomic approaches to study non-genetic heterogeneity in clonal population of cells. The candidate will focus on the study of translation regulation and its contribution to cell-to-cell variability in S. cerevisiae, with a special focus on ribosome dynamics, tRNA biology and post-transcriptional regulation. In a second stage the candidate will expand his/her work to the study of human cells. The candidate will perform original research in genomics, and acquire the required experimental and computational skills necessary for the completion of the project.

Postdoctoral position in Tim Nott’s lab

Our colleague Tim Nott offers a Wellcome Trust-funded postdoc position. The primary aim of the project is to understand the molecular basis and biochemical consequences of membraneless compartmentalisation in cells. The work will combine established methods of reconstituting membraneless organelles with the development of new biochemical assays and advanced microscopic imaging strategies.
