Laboratory of DNA replication and genome stability would be happy to host a refugee with a background in molecular and cell biology research. For a PhD student with a matching skillset we can offer a 4-year position, but can also consider researchers at other levels on a case-by-case basis.
PhD topic: DNA replication initiation in human cells
Summary: The goal of this PhD project is to explore the molecular mechanism and signaling events underlying DNA replication initiation in human cells
Description, incl. responsibilities and tasks:
DNA replication is one of the major targets of cancer therapies, as cancer cells tend to proliferate faster and are generally more prone to replication stress. Most of the information about DNA replication initiation currently comes from model organisms, such as yeast, but their applicability to human system is limited. Some of the critical steps of replication initiation are very poorly understood in human system. It is important to study replication initiation in human cells in order to be able to exploit the findings in cancer therapies.
Methods: CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing, cloning, mammalian cell culture, flow cytometry, transfections, siRNA, survival/proliferation assays; co-immunoprecipitations, pulldowns, western blots, proteomic screens.
Responsibilities and tasks:
We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student with a strong background in molecular or cell biology. Previous experience in the field of genome maintenance is preferred but not required.

The Reproductive Biology Research Group at the Tallinn University of Technology studies the molecular mechanisms behind normal ovarian function and infertility. We are focused foremost on female infertility and on such ovarian processes which assure the maturation of a healthy egg. This maturation is affected by hormones from the pituitary gland, steroid hormones produced by the ovaries and several signaling molecules that traffic between the egg and the surrounding granulosa cells. By identifying key signaling pathways for ovarian functions, we can understand, diagnose, and treat infertility of ovarian etiology
In our work we use both classical laboratory methods as well as methods for high throughput analysis, especially RNA sequencing. We use bioinformatic data analysis to model active signaling pathways in the ovary.
We are in close cooperation with the Competence Centre on Health Technologies, HansaBioMed Life Sciences and with all fertility clinics in Estonia.
We are looking for candidates to apply for the Estonian Research Council support measure dedicated to Ukrainian researchers to join our research team.
