Two Postdoctoral positions – Towards deciphering mechanisms of transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene regulation in eukaryotic cells
Two postdoctoral positions are available early 2017 in the laboratory of Lidia Vasiljeva funded by Senior Research Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Oxford (http://www.bioch.ox.ac.uk/), which is a part of the University of Oxford’s thriving scientific community. The laboratory is located in a new building providing interactive environment and various state-of-the-art research facilities.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with an interest in gene regulation in yeast and mammalian cells. The proposed projects will utilize state-of-the-art biochemistry and structural approaches combined with the functional genome-wide analysis to understand how transcription factors and chromatin modifiers regulate transcription of protein-coding and non-coding genesis in yeast and mammalian cells. The structural study will be done as a part of existing productive collaboration with Jonathan Grimes laboratory at STRUBi (Oxford). Candidates trained in protein purification, mammalian cell culture, and/or computational biology are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have or will shortly obtain a PhD and are expected to be highly motivated, with excellent critical thinking skills and will preferably have a strong background in molecular biology.
Interested applicant should contact Dr Lidia Vasiljeva directly:
