Marie Curie Action COFUND marie Curie Early Stage researchers for The European non-coding RNA training network

Please note that the job is no longer active!

RNA-TRAIN is a new FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network, devoted to educating the next generation of European researchers focusing on the functions and importance of the non-coding RNAs in the context of development, differentiation and disease. We are 11 partners across Europe, offering a total of 10 Early Stage Researcher positions (PhD´s) for 36 months at different host institutions. Later 3 Experienced Researchers will join the network. The RNATRAIN is equipped with a broad and complementary spectrum of advanced research methodologies enabling fellows to conduct frontline research. The training program includes state-of-the-art methods in genomics (ChRIP, ChIP-seq, DNA methylation analyses), transcriptomics (RNA-seq, HITS-CLIP, 3’ seq and custom arrays), proteomics (mass spectrometry including SILAC labelling, RIP), and in computational analyses. The project will offer great opportunities to establish interdisciplinary training and collaborations throughout Europe.
