Welcome to the research group of professor Jean-Pierre Perreault


  • 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, to identify the interacting RNA binding proteins, 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. For more information or to apply, send your CV with a short description of your motivation to jean- pierre.perreault@usherbrooke.ca. With more than 30,000 students, including more than 1,600 students from 120 countries, the Université de Sherbrooke is a French-speaking institution that offers the opportunity to benefit from an academic training and research environment recognized worldwide.
