Dear ciliate community,

I have an open postdoc position to study RNA-mediated genome remodeling in Paramecium. Here's the ad:

Postdoc Position in RNA Biology and Epigenetics

The Nowacki lab is looking for researchers interested in studying the mechanisms of RNA-mediated epigenetic programming of developmental genome rearrangements in ciliates. The candidates should have a very strong background in molecular biology and biochemistry or bioinformatics and at least one first-author publication. Good communication skills in English are expected. For more information about the research please visit the lab websites:

The initial appointment will be for one year with possibility of renewal (max. 4-5 years). The salary and benefits are based on the Swiss National Science Foundation standard and funded by the European Research Council (ERC).
If interested, please send a CV, a statement of research interest and e-mail addresses of two or three references via e-mail to Prof. Mariusz Nowacki: [log in to unmask]
