PhD Position (m/w/x)

Subject: Targets and functions of the chloroplast ribonucleoproteins CP33A and CP33B

As part of the DFG priority program 1935:  Deciphering the mRNP code: RNA-bound determinants of post-transcriptional gene regulation, we are looking for a motivated PhD student in the Department of Molecular Genetics from 15th October 2019. In this project, novel high throughput techniques like eCLIP or metabolic labelling of RNA will be employed to analyze two chloroplast-localized RNA binding proteins.

 

Chloroplast cp33a and cp33b

Yours tasks:
  • Identify binding sites of CP33A and CP33B using iCLIP and RIP-Seq
  • Analyse the impact of CP33A and CP33B on RNA turnover using metabolic labeling and super-throughput sequencing of chloroplast RNAs
  • Perform genetic and biochemical analyses to understand, which RNase is the antagonist of CP33A and CP33B
  • Analyze the function of RNA granules containing CP33A using high-resolution fluorescence microscopy
  • Cooperation with Partners in the Priority Program
  • Scientific publication of the project results

Your profile:
  • Excellent M.Sc. degree in biological sciences or related field
  • Very good communication skills
  • Ability to organize and prioritize work efficiently
We offer:
  • Top level interdisciplinary research at an excellence university, which enjoys the highest reputation within Germany as well as internationally
  • 3-year contract
