New PhD position available in the lab

Interested in finding ways to beat drug-resistance in cancer? Intrigued by the latest progress in the field of mRNA biology?

We are inviting applications for a fully funded PhD position (tuition+ stipend+ bench fee, for UK and Rep. Ireland residents only) for a motivated student interested in studying the mechanisms that link mRNA translation to metabolism and treatment-resistance in glioblastoma.

Working in the RNA biology and in collaboration with Dr. Colin Adrain's groups at the Patrick G. Johnston Centre for Cancer Research, you will apply a range of state-of-the art RNA-biology, genomics, and molecular biology approaches to study how targeting the mRNA translation machinery could increase the anti-cancer treatment efficacy. This funding is generously provided by Brainwave-NI.
