Assistant professor on epitranscriptomics in cancer in the Lund Group at BRIC, University of Copenhagen

It is becoming increasingly clear that RNA serves a multitude of purposes in the cell, also beyond translation. Furthermore, RNAs may carry more than 100 different chemical modifications most of which have not been functionally characterized. Recent data suggest that several of these epitranscriptomic changes may be hijacked by cancerous processes. 
The group 
The Lund group is an international and dynamic research group comprising several postdocs, PhD students and Masters students. Research in the Lund group currently has several focuses including the function and regulation of various classes of non-coding RNAs in human diseases ( 
The successful candidate will develop a research project to identify and characterize the functional roles of RNA modifications in cancer using high throughput sequencing techniques and molecular modeling in cell culture and/or animal models. 
Start: Preferably  April 2018 or after agreement 
Duration: 2 years, full time  
We expect you to be a highly motivated and highly ambitious scientist with the following qualifications: 

  • A PhD in Life Sciences
