PhD position: CRISPR biology and technologies
The research group “RNA Synthetic Biology” (RSYN) of Dr. Prof. Chase Beisel at the Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based infection research (HIRI) in Würzburg (Germany) is offering a PhD position: “CRISPR biology and technologies”.
The Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based Infection Research (HIRI) was established in May 2017 as a joint venture between the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) and the Julius-Maximilians-University of Würzburg (JMU). Located on the Würzburg medical campus, it will be the first research institution worldwide to exclusively address the role of ribonucleic acids (RNAs) in infection processes. Based on these findings, the HIRI will pioneer an integrative approach to exploit the vast potential of RNA as a diagnostic, drug, and therapeutic target for new strategies to combat infectious diseases. The RSYN research group will start in January 2018. www.helmholtz-hzi.de/hiri
