FP-DYNAMO-PARIS Postdoc in mRNA Surveillance

Call 2 opens in January 2022

Applications will open for a Postdoctoral Research position in the laboratory of Dr. Lionel Benard, located in the central Paris to undertake a basic research project to characterize mRNA surveillance mechanisms.

Our team is investigating cellular processes that identify and degrade faulty mRNAs and their corresponding aberrant peptides, potentially toxic to cells. Ribosome-based quality controls have received much attention during the past decade, leading to the characterization of highly conserved surveillance effectors that rescue stalled ribosomes and degrade aberrant/damaged mRNAs and truncated peptides. These studies have also revealed that alternative processes exist, involving mechanisms and factors of quality control that we aim to characterize using S. cerevisiae as a model organism.
