Position: Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: Division of Biosciences
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: We are recruiting a post-doctoral Research Fellow to dissect the interactions regulating local mRNA translation in neurons. The Research Fellow will take advantage of the biophysical understanding of the IMP1/ZBP1 system achieved in the Ramos laboratory and use single molecule microscopy, MERFISH and transcriptome wide analysis of in cell interactions (e.g. iCLIP) to define IMP1 key regulatory and operating principles. The Research Fellow will work in close collaboration with a Structural Biologist within the RNA Regulation Laboratory and with collaborating teams at the Francis Crick Institute and the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour in London, as well as collaborators in the US
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD (or about to submit) in Cellular and Molecular Biology. S/he must have skills in cell culture, basic cellular and molecular assays and basic bioinformatics and data analysis. S/he must have experience in RNA Biology
