International PhD Fellowship Gene Regulation by RNA modifications
浏览次数: 130

Applications are invited from candidates interested in a PhD fellowship to study gene regulation by RNA modifications. This?fellowship is funded by the IDEX initiative of University of Grenoble to promote international collaborations.


The N6-methyladenosine (m6A) mark is an abundant internal modification on RNAs and this is highly conserved from yeast to plants and

animals. RNA methyltransferases ‘write’ this mark on transcripts, and this can be ‘erased’ by demethylases, making it a dynamic regulatory

modification. Proteins that can recognize the mark ‘read’ this signal on messages to impact RNA stability, translation, splicing and export. This

project aims to use Drosophila as the main model to investigate the in vivo relevance of this mark in physiological processes. This interdisciplinary?project will also make use of protein biochemistry, cell biology and computational methods.


One unique aspect of this 3-year PhD project is its strong international dimension. It will be a collaboration between the labs of

Dr. Marie-Odile Fauvarque (University of Grenoble) and Dr. Ramesh Pillai (University of Geneva). The student will enrol for PhD at the

University of Grenoble, France.


Highly motivated students who have recently completed their Masters in Biology or related areas, are invited to apply. Candidates with prior

experience in working with Drosophila as a model are particularly encouraged. Applications should contain a brief motivation statement

(300 words max) and a CV.
