In the field of ''RNA Biology”, the research group of Dr Falk Butter offers the following PhD project:

Characterization of gene regulatory effects of long non-coding RNAs

We are looking for a student with a master degree in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or related fields. During the project, you will combine state-of-the art systems level technologies (transcriptomics, quantitative proteomics, high content screening microscopy and CLIP-seq) with classical biochemical and cell biological techniques. This work will involve a variety of techniques to unravel the molecular mechanisms of lncRNPs in neuronal cell systems and embryonic stem cells. A strong motivation to work with diverse techniques and interest to apply them also in a screening setup is required.  Interest in creation and analysis of large-scale data sets together with independence, first class organizational and management skills are necessary. Due to the collaborative nature of proteomics, the interest in collaborations beyond the direct research project is expected.

We offer

  • The possibility to work on a cutting-edge project using state-of-the-art technology in a highly motivated research team

  • A stimulating, diverse and international research environment

  • Advanced training opportunities

  • A fully funded PhD position

Duration of stipend/salary: 3 years, with the possibility of extension

Starting date: 1 March 2018 or later

Deadline for registration (exclusively online via web form): 15 November 2017
