A 2 years post-doctoral position is open in the team of Stéphane Emiliani, «Interactions Hôte-Virus», within INSERM U1016 at Institut Cochin, Paris, France. Molecular characterization of RISC (RNA Induced Silencing Complex) involved in HIV-1 replication
Several lines of evidence point to a connexion between the miRNA induced silencing pathway and HIV-1 replication. In particular, the knock-down of several proteins of the RNAi pathway lead to an enhancement in HIV-1 replication.
The aim of our project is to identify the miRISC (micro-RNA induced silencing complex) components, proteins and RNAs, that interact with the viral RNA and modulate HIV-1 replication.
Post-doctoral candidates should have a strong background in biochemistry and molecular biology. He/she will work in bl3 core facility and manipulate HIV-1 infected cells. Knowledge in the miRNA and/or HIV fields will be an asset.
Application deadline : 31st of April 2011
