Long noncoding RNAs in cardiac regeneration
A position is available for a project focusing on the molecular mechanisms of cardiac regeneration in the mammalian heart. We are using integrated approaches (cell culture; RNA-Seq; ChIP-Seq; bioinformatics; pathophysiological models in genetically engineered mice) to identify long noncoding RNAs that could play a role in programming (differentiation) and reprogramming of cardiac cells towards the cardiomyocyte fate.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a Master degree in molecular and cellular biology, and a strong interest in the molecular basis of cardiac regeneration. Previous experience in relevant techniques (primary cell culture; transcriptomic analysis; genome and epigenome editing) would be a significant advantage. Good communication and interpersonal skills, and ability to work independently are expected.
A salary is available for three years.
Candidates are encouraged to send a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and names and Email addresses of three referees to: Prof. Thierry Pedrazzini by Email at: email@example.com
