UCD Post-Doctoral Research Fellow PD1

Applications are invited for a Post- Doctoral Research Fellow in the UCD School of Medicine. This is a temporary post.
The aetiology of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is multifactorial involving both genetic and environmental influences. Genome wide association studies have identified more than 100 susceptibility loci including a variant, rs26232, in the 1st intron of C5orf30. 
This research project will investigate the mechanisms underlying the genetic link of rs26232 with tissue damage and investigate the interactome of C5orf30 in synovial fibroblasts. Our objectives are to ascertain if rs26232 genotype is; (1) correlated with RASF phenotypic characteristics in vitro including invasiveness, migration and gene expression profiles, (2) differential nuclear protein binding, (3) associated with 3’ untranslated variants of C5orf30 and with differential intracellular localization. We will also identify the interactome of C5orf30 in synovial fibroblasts and determine key interaction domains. These experiments will give important novel information on the biology of C5orf30 in mediating tissue damage in RA.
