OFFER DESCRIPTION

OFFER DESCRIPTION :

The newly established Gilot lab hosted by the Cancer Center INSERM U1242 - University of Rennes 1 (Rennes, France) is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to study the role of lncRNAs in therapy-resistance. We use a wide-range of state-of-the-art methods including CRISPR screens (gain- and loss-of functions), Prime-Editing, ASOs and long-read RNA sequencing. (https://doi.org/10.1101/2020.07.08.193102).

The Cancer Center aims first at understanding molecular mechanisms underlying carcinogenesis and second, at generating tailored chemicals to disturb specific signaling pathways involved in oncogenesis by bringing together chemists, biologists and clinicians within the “Centre de Lutte Contre le Cancer” Eugène Marquis. One strength of the cancer center relies on its international staff.

MAIN ACTIVITIES :

As Postdoc in our lab, your position is primarily research-based but may also involve teaching assignments. You will contribute to the development of the Cancer Center through research of high international quality. In your daily work, you will work closely with colleagues on your project, where you will receive supervision and guidance. For the CRISPR screening, she/he will work with two other team members (PhD student & engineer). For the RNA-seq, she/he will collaborate with Thomas Derrien (IGDR, CNRS 6290) and an engineer. Regular mentoring and career development programs will ensure transition to independent research careers in academia or industry.
