Predoctoral Researcher (FPI fellowship) (ref. PRE/21/04)

Application deadline:

IRB Barcelona seeks a motivated Predoctoral Researcher (FPI fellowship) for the Translational Control of Cell Cycle and Differentiation Laboratory led by Prof. Raúl Méndez, in the field of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in cell cycle and cancer.The primary interest of our group has been to understand the molecular mechanisms that dictate alternative 3’ UTR formation and the temporal and spatial translational control of specific mRNAs during cell cycle progression and chromosome segregation, senescence and related pathologies. Cell cycle progression is programmed, at least in part, by stored silent mRNAs. These mRNAs are not translated en masse at any one time, or even at any one place; rather, their translation is specifically regulated by sequences located at their 3´-untranslated regions (3´-UTRs) and their binding proteins.
