Candidate will work on regulatory long noncoding RNAs that have been shortlisted using mitosis-based functional long noncoding RNA screens. The candidate will use RNA biology, cell and molecular biology techniques to understand the functional role of long noncoding RNAs in mitosis progression. The candidate will investigate the potential role of mitosis-specific long noncoding RNA in cancer development and progression using cancer cell lines and animal models. The selected candidate will also take the responsibility of maintaining cell room and controlling environment regulations in the lab.
The candidate will be performing extensive RNA Scope, live cell imaging and chromatin oligo immunoprecipitation (ChOP) and RNA immunoprecipitation (RIP) to understand the role of long noncoding RNA mitotic progression. The candidate will be culturing primary cells and cancer cell lines.
We are seeking highly motivated candidates with a strong technical experience in RNA biology and cell & molecular biology. To be eligible for employment as a researcher, applicants must have a PhD in molecular and cell biology. The prospective candidate is expected to have experience with cell-based assays with a focus on cell cycle progression and good experience in cell biology and molecular biology techniques. The candidates should have extensive experience RNA related technologies such as chromatin oligo immunoprecipitation (ChOP), RNA immunoprecipitation (RIP), RNA-ScopeTM, live cell imaging, Fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), culturing of primary and cancer cells and also expertise in analyzing RNA-sequencing.
The candidate should have expertise in maintaining cell room routines and environment regulations in the lab. The applicant should be fluent in English both in written and spoken forms.
The employment is a full time permanent position, placed at the Institute of Biomedicine. First day of employment as agreed. Probationary employment is applied.
