(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow Position: Mechanisms and impact of non-canonical splicing
Our laboratory recently revealed striking features in the genomes of larvaceans, a group of marine animals belonging to the sister group of vertebrates. One of the most extreme cases has been found in a species where over 90% of introns have variable borders that do not conform to the canonical splice sites, despite the presence of a conserved major spliceosome. Uncovering how the spliceosome can recognize a variety of splice sites will inform about the control of splicing accuracy, with potential benefits for understanding its role in human diseases.
Deadline : 29th April 2022

(10) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow
The project in the laboratory of Prof. Petri Kursula aims at the molecular characterization of the self-assembly process leading to the formation of myelin, which is a lipid membrane multilayer containing specific embedded proteins. The proteins are associated with lipid membranes and contain large degrees of disorder. We are interested in the structure and dynamics as well as the mechanisms of self-assembly and the physicochemical properties of myelin-like membranes.

(12) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow Position: Evolution of Hox gene function in Tunicates
The research group studies the evolution of chordates using as model organism the tunicate Oikopleura dioica. The project aims at elucidating the role and regulation of Hox genes during embryonic and larval development. There are nine Hox genes in Oikopleura that were dispersed at nine distinct locations of the genome (Seo et al, Nature 2004). The work will benefit from new technological developments for gene knock out and gene expression knock down obtained and exploited by the group (Deng et al, Current Biology 2018; Mikhaleva et al, J Exp Zool 2014) as well as whole embryo single cell RNA sequencing data (unpublished) and important genomic resources. A mutant line for Hox1 has already been produced with thorough description of the phenotype. The project will include some comparisons with Hox gene expression in the tunicate Ciona intestinalis, which is also bred at the Sars Centre.
