工作內容:

Epitranscriptomic RNA modifications have recently emerged to be an important layer of regulation of viral host interactions, with the gene expression of multiple viruses regulated by RNA modifications, and some modifications shielding viral RNAs from immune detection. The current COVID-19 pandemic not only highlights the importance of basic virology research, but the BioNTech and Moderna RNA vaccines also showcases the practical use of RNA modifications to prevent immune destruction of RNA vaccines.

The Tsai lab is launching mid May, and looking for highly motivated problem solvers to join our quest in exploring epitranscriptomic RNA modifications in either Influenza A virus or the tumorigenic Epstein-Barr virus. For details, see: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41579-020-0382-3

Work in the lab is expected to be highly diverse and mostly molecular, including DNA molecular cloning, tissue culture of viruses, protein and RNA purification work, and computational analysis of next gen sequencing (NGS) results. Prior related experiences preferred but not required.

We are looking for post doctoral fellows, with biomedical relevant backgrounds. Graduate students who are interested in training in the lab should apply through the Academia Sinica Taiwan International Graduate Program in Molecular Medicine (TIGP, see https://tigp.sinica.edu.tw/MM.html )

Preferred candidates should be active problem solvers, either though asking collages, reading papers, or designing experiments to obtain answers. Good candidates should maintain productivity without overworking. Taipei is a great city for specialty coffee lovers and outdoor activity enthusiasts. The PI is Taiwanese-American and welcomes talents of all nationalities as long as the candidate can communicate in English.

Please contact Kevin Tsai at kevtsai@ibms.sinica.edu.tw with your CV and cover letter to discuss opportunities.


徵求有興趣探索病毒RNA修飾的研究夥伴一同來了解RNA修飾對病毒基因表現的調控與其延伸應用。目前已知RNA修飾可調控多種病毒的基因表現,並已有少數報告顯示RNA修飾可調控細胞分辨本體與外來病毒RNA。近期COVID-19疫情不但凸顯了病毒研究的重要性,最近上市的輝瑞/BNT和Moderna的SARS-CoV-2 疫苗以人工pseudouridine修飾防止細胞攻擊疫苗中的RNA的應用例子更是RNA修飾的重要應用例子。本實驗室將針對流感病毒A (Influenza A virus, IAV) 與可造成人類白血病與鼻咽癌的Epstein-Bar virus (EBV) 兩種病毒來研究RNA修飾對病毒複製與免疫辨識的影響。

本實驗室將於五月中旬正式成立,新進人員將協助建立全新的實驗室。實驗室常用技術包含基因轉殖、細胞與病毒培養技術、RNA蛋白質交互作用檢驗(如PAR-CLIP)與次世代定序(NGS)資料的電腦分析。英台雙母語的蔡老師也會樂於幫實驗室同仁練習英文寫作或演講。

應徵者希望是對病毒或RNA有興趣,並樂於解決問題的人。需有基本的英文溝通與閱讀能力。研究需要常保腦活,因此本實驗室希望成員能夠在不過勞的生活型態下保有生產力。台北四周環山,城郊自然活動場域豐富而易達;城裡也有多重精品咖啡選擇,歡迎同好加入。
