The laboratory of Torben Heick Jensen, Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, invites applications for a 2-year postdoc position offering applicants an exciting opportunity to join a new research project on the biogenesis and turnover of RNA in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

The position is available from 1st of August 2019 or as soon as possible hereafter.

Job description
We are looking for a candidate with an interest in the biogenesis and turnover of RNA and its relationship to transcription in the budding yeast S. cerevisiae. Focus will be on the role of nuclear RNA decay complexes upon transcription program changes. The project is expected to include high throughput sequencing analysis.

Your profile
Applicants should hold a PhD in genetics, biochemistry, cell biology and/or computational biology. Prior experience with Saccharomyces cerevisiae will be an advantage.

Who we are
The Jensen laboratory consists of a dynamic mix of experimental and computational biologists aiming to examine the production, turnover and possible functional impact of eukaryotic transcriptomes.

The place of work is the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, C.F. Møllers Alle 3, 8000 Aarhus C.

Application procedure
Shortlisting is used. This means that after the deadline for applications – and with the assistance from the assessment committee chairman, and the appointment committee if necessary, – the head of department selects the candidates to be evaluated. All applicants will be notified whether or not their applications have been sent to an expert assessment committee for evaluation. The selected applicants will be informed about the composition of the committee, and each applicant is given the opportunity to comment on the part of the assessment that concerns him/her self. Once the recruitment process is completed a final letter of rejection is sent to the deselected applicants, including the main considerations emphasized during the selection process.

The application must be in English and include a curriculum vitae, degree certificate, a complete list of publications, a statement of future research plans and information about research activities, teaching portfolio and verified information on previous teaching experience (if any). Guidelines for applicants can be found here. (http://scitech.au.dk/en/about-science-and-technology/vacant-positions/application-form-guide/)

Appointment shall be in accordance with the collective labour agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. Further information on qualification requirements and job content may be found in the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at Danish Universities (http://www.medarbejdere.au.dk/job_structure_for_academic_staff_at_Universities_2013).

Salary depends on seniority as agreed between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Confederation of Professional Associations.

All interested candidates are encouraged to apply, regardless of their personal background.

Research activities will be evaluated in relation to actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify periods of leave without research activities, in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of the scientific career during the evaluation of scientific productivity.
