New PhD position available in the lab

Come and join our growing team to study the role of mRNA translation machinery in cancer response to drug treatment.

We have a fully funded PhD position to investigate the role of mRNA translation machinery in cellular response to anti-cancer drug treatments. This is a collaboration with Dr Colin Adrain (Proteostasis group) at Patrick Johnston Centre for Cancer Research. You will apply a range of cell & molecular biology, RNA-biology, and genomics techniques to investigate the cellular mechanisms that contribute to detection and suppression of damaged mRNAs and proteins in response to drug treatment in cancer.

All you need to qualify, besides being a resident of the UK in the last 3 years (sorry, funder's rules), is being self-motivated and interested in working at the intersection of mRNA and molecular biology and functional genomics. To learn more, and apply have a look at the link below!
