Research Fellow - RNA Biology, Medicine, Medical Sciences & Nutrition

We are seeking an enthusiastic, highly motivated post-doctoral scientist with a strong interest in RNA biology for a 3 year position in the group of Dr Berndt Müller and Dr Jonathan Pettitt at the Institute of Medical Sciences of the University of Aberdeen (www.aberdeenwormlab.org). The researcher will work as part of a BBSRC-funded research program that aims to understand the molecular machinery critical for an essential, nematode-specific pre-mRNA maturation step termed spliced leader trans-splicing. This research will inform therapeutic strategies to fight parasitic nematodes that pose significant threats to human and animal health. The project combines state-of-the-art nematode molecular genetics and RNA biochemistry, including genome editing, proteomics and RNA sequencing technologies to (1) determine the molecular composition of RNA-protein complexes critical for spliced leader trans-splicing; and (2) define the roles of newly identified protein factors. We have partnered with Prof Michael Sattler (Technical University of Munich), a leading expert in the structural biology of RNA-protein complexes, for the detailed analysis of molecular interactions and structures.  This comprehensive, multifaceted approach will provide crucial insights into nematode gene expression, with clear implications for the development of new treatments for parasitic nematode infections.
