A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Ben Luisi in the Department of Biochemistry of the University of Cambridge in Central Cambridge, to work on RNA mediated gene regulation in bacteria. (Dendooven et al. (2021) Mol Cell; Islam et al. (2021) RNA; Pei et al. (2019) eLife; Bandyra et al. (2018) Mol Cell). A multi-disciplinary approach involving biochemical, biophysical and cellular experiments will be used to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of regulatory RNA recognition and action to modulate gene expression.

The ultimate goal of the project is to advance our understanding of RNA based regulation, by means of biochemical reconstitution and structural characterisation using purified protein components.

Previous experience in the analysis of multi-protein complexes and protein-RNA interactions, as well as familiarity with biophysical techniques such as X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy single-particle analysis or tomography would be an advantage. The position would also be suitable for candidates trained in cellular biology and with an interest in the study of molecular mechanisms in vivo.

The funds for the post is available for 3 years in the first instance.

Applicants should submit a CV with list of relevant publications, a cover letter explaining why they are suitable for the position and the contact details of at least two referees.
