Post-doctoral position in mammalian pre-mRNA splicing

Department of Cell Biology, Faculty of Sciences, University of Geneva, Switzerland

A post-doctoral position is available immediately to join a research project aimed at analysing in vivo pre-mRNA targets of proteins involved in splice site recognition at the onset of spliceosome assembly (in particular SF1, U2AF65 and related proteins). Identified targets will be validated with in vitro and in vivo assays.

Applicants will have a strong background in molecular and cell biology. Excellent skills in experimentation with RNA and cell culture are essential. Candidates with previous experience in RNA biology are strongly preferred. A good command of English is indispensable.

Motivated individuals should send a CV with publication list, a description of research experience and interests, and the names and contact information of three references to Professor Angela Krämer at: Starting date: as soon as possible.
