Deciphering RNA

The RiboClub brings together ribonucleic acid (RNA) biologists aiming at promoting the study of RNA evolution, structure and function. By fostering regular meetings, exchanging ideas, and sharing infrastructure, the RiboClub creates a unique atmosphere for the recruitment and development of young researchers.

Postdoctoral position in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology on the study of RNA G-quadruplex (G4) patterns form the neurones (University of Sherbrooke, Canada)

A two-year fellowship is available to work on the characterization of RNA G4 across the transcriptomes of various cell types of the human nervous system. The objectives are to analyse the structure of these G4s, to determine their contribution on the post-transcriptional regulation of the health and disease cells, and to modulate their folding in cells. The research group of Pr. Perreault is at the Department of Biochemistry and Functional Genomics of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. It has expertise in the prediction and the study of RNA G4 http://jpperreaultlab.recherche.usherbrooke.ca/.

The University of Sherbrooke is a French-speaking institution that offers the opportunity to benefit from an academic education and a research environment that are recognized and valued around the world. It hosts more than 30 000 students, including more than 1,600 foreign students from 120 countries worldwide. More than 85% of the students enrolled at the University are from outside Sherbrooke. Sherbrooke is a friendly, dynamic, bilingual city. It is the 6th most important city in Québec with about 160 000 citizens, located among hills, valleys and plateaus. Sports, nature and culture lovers will find that Sherbrooke offers them all sorts of activities including hiking, skiing, golfing, biking, as well as art galleries, museums, theatre, fine dining, cinemas and numerous other activities for culture aficionados.

Our Mission Statement

The RiboClub was founded in 1999 by researchers at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the Université de Sherbrooke. All the founding members have a particular interest in some aspect of RNA biology.

The RiboClub was put in place in order to :

• Establish an exceptional environment for students.
• Encourage students to interact and exchange with other students within the RiboClub.
• Stimulate interdisciplinary collaborations between groups.
• Foster the initiation of innovative projects that span multiple areas of expertise.
• Offer access to the latest technology infrastructure.
• Organize a monthly seminar series and an annual meeting.

The Université de Sherbrooke recognizes these activities and conferred us the status of “Center of Excellence in RNA Biology”. The actual research activities of the RiboClub members and associated labs include all nuances of the modern RNA field such as RNA expression, maturation (modification, cleavage and trimming, splicing), transport, and structure.
