  1. Research engineer (12 months)
    Research Unit : UMR 8227: Integrative biology of marine models
    Laboratory Location: Station Biologique de Roscoff (on the north coast of Brittany, FRANCE)
    Function: Design and engineering works
    MISSION :The research activity will be done in the team « Translation, Cell Cycle and Development ». It consists in the design and developments of biochemical methods to probe, reveal and analyze structural motifs in various RNAs of diverse origins

    • Ensure the set-up and development of probing methods adapted to RNAS, such as for example, the SHAPE method, to study the regulation of translation which takes place in sea urchin at fertilization.
    • Prepare RNAs samples from cellular extracts and in vitro synthesis
    • Set-up the probing conditions in diverse media (buffers, extracts, in vivo) with several probes (the SHAPE probes, DMS, CMCT, RNAses)
    • Set-up the analysis of the probed positions by reverse-transcription and sequence analysis with gels and sequencers
    • Prepare the transitions towards probing a large number of RNAs and NGS


    • Design the experiments (probing and analysis) and controls in an autonomous way; integrate controls, benchmarking, statistical analysis as well as security measures
    • Organize the work for future exploitation and presentations (team level, meetings, publications)
    • Report of the progress on a regular basis, redaction of technical notes and protocoles
    • Manage equipment, stocks and data bases of the project
    • Technology monitoring to watch novel techniques related to structural probing or sequencing
    • Supervise and train students and team members in the methods used


    • Proficiency in RNA biochemistry; preliminary experiences with RNA manipulation is required.
    • General knowledge of molecular and cellular biology. Formation in chemistry will be an asset.
    • Functioning principles and usage of the aparatus used in the domain (such as sequencers, electrophoresis, thermocyclers, etc …)
