Endre Sebestyen Lab, Hungary
PhD student position at the Semmelweis University
Are you interested in analyzing terabytes of experimental data? Do you want to work on a project, where you need to combine biology, statistics, programming and answer challenging, interdisciplinary research questions? You think about bioinformatics, cancer and networks all the time? We are looking for a candidate to join our computational biology group to work on a new project. Our main goal will be to investigate gene expression and splicing variance in cancer and the effect of this variance on somatic mutations and gene regulatory networks. Characterizing the determinants of variance might help in understanding early cancer development, drug resistance, metastasis and the varying penetrance of human diseases.

Michael Jantsch Lab, Vienna, Austria
Post-doctoral position in RNA-modification group in Vienna
A post-doctoral position is available in the group of Michael Jantsch at the Medical
University of Vienna, studying the interaction of the RNA-editing enzyme ADAR1 with its transport protein transportin1. This interaction is regulated by RNA-binding and seemingly controls the shuttling behavior of this protein. In a collaborative research grant with the structural biologist Pierre Barraud in Paris, the interaction between transporter and cargo and its regulation via RNA-binding shall be studied.
The work will involve construction of fusion proteins and mutations thereof, binding assays, nuclear import assays, RNA-crosslinking assays, and cell transfection assays
The position is funded for up to 24 months following Austrian Post doctoral salaries of
~67k€ gross annual salary. The position is open immediately.
If interested, please send your application together with a motivation letter and a CV to Michael.Jantsch@meduniwien.ac.at
