The Grainger laboratory at the University of Birmingham is seeking applicants for a Welcome Trust funded position to study molecular mechanisms associated with toxic DNA sequences. Briefly, high AT-content DNA can be introduced into any genome by the action of viruses or other mobile genetic elements. These AT-rich sections of DNA often have deleterious consequences and, for bacteria, we have shown that these result from uncontrolled transcription. You will join a team focused on i) understanding the downstream molecular pathways that poison the cell ii) the ubiquity of these phenomena beyond the bacterial domain of life. A strong background in molecular biology is essential. Approaches to be applied during the project will involve genetics, Illumina sequencing and data analysis, working with radioactivity, protein purification and a range of different assays to detect transcription. It will be essential for applicants to demonstrate knowledge of the subject area and an ability to think creatively about the subject
The responsibilities may include some but not all of the responsibilities outlined below.
