Post-doc in Single-Cell Molecular Biology & Microfluidics, Institut de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire, Strasbourg, France
A post-doc position (18 to 24 months) will be available starting from October 1st 2018 in the team “Digital Biology of RNA” (Architecture and Reactivity of RNA) headed by Michael Ryckelynck at IBMC (Strasbourg-France). The team is specialized in the development and the use of droplet-based microfluidics to address biological questions related to the study of gene expression regulation, especially those involving non-coding RNAs. More specifically, the team develops tools and technologies aiming at characterizing gene expression with single-cell resolution to precisely understand how gene expression is controlled throughout a cell population while preserving information on cell-to-cell variability.
The team has recently developed and patented innovative tools aiming at analyzing the transcriptome and the proteome of a cell population while keeping a single-cell resolution and in a massively parallel manner. We now wish to apply this technology to cell samples and to further adapt it to the specific analysis of biologically relevant RNA subsets. To this end, we are seeking a highly motivated post-doc with a strong expertise in molecular biology and/or microfluidics. In particular, the candidate should have experience in the use and optimization of molecular biology procedures involving nucleic acids (e.g. preparation of DNA libraries for NGS analysis).
Applications (CV, list of publications and 2 references) should be sent to Michael Ryckelynck (email@example.com).
Application deadline: 31 August 2018
Expected start: 1 October 2018 or upon agreement
