Research Fellow

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7.

The Regulatory Genomics laboratory uses genomics, bioinformatics, molecular and biochemical techniques to identify how chromatin modifiers function with RNA to regulate cell differentiation. The lab currently comprises the principal investigator, three postdoctoral research associates, and three PhD students. Our research uses embryonic stem cells (ESC) as a model for embryonic development and T helper cells as a model for adult cell differentiation and is underpinned by our expertise in genomics, biochemical and molecular biology methods. We are looking for a post-doc to determine the role of G-tract elements embedded in pre-mRNAs in chromatin regulation. Establish the contribution of PRC2 RNA binding function to the PRC2 removal from genes activated during cell differentiation. Identify other chromatin regulatory elements within pre-mRNAs.

The post holder should have a PhD (or be in the process of submitting a PhD) in chromatin regulation, transcriptional control or RNA biology, BSc or equivalent in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, or a related subject or equivalent experience. The post holder should have experience of cell culture, quantitative PCR and genomics methodologies or biochemical methods, knowledge of chromatin regulation and/or RNA biology. they should have the ability to organise and prioritise work and to work safely and effectively with a minimum of supervision, skills in cell culture, ideally embryonic stem cell culture and differentiation.
