Postdoctoral FellowAs soon as possible A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the research group of Aoife McLysaght in Trinity College Dublin to work on gene expression analysis in yeast. The successful candidate will be responsible for the design and implementation of molecular genetic experiments in yeast and will need to be able to work independently and of their own initiative. The fellowship is part of our new European Research Council-funded project DOUBLEEXPRESS, whose aim is to explore the complex relationship between gene duplicability, gene expression and dosage sensitivity.
