We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist to join our research team in the Center for RNA Molecular Biology at Case Western Reserve University. The Coller lab focuses on the relationship between mRNA turnover and mRNA translation in eukaryotic cells. The turnover of mRNA is intimately connected to the process of protein synthesis. Importantly, work from our lab over the past five years has shown that key factors in promoting mRNA decay do so by affecting ribosome function. We continue to investigate the interconnection of mRNA stability and translation and are developing new methodologies and utilizing emerging technologies to monitor these events globally.
The Center for RNA Molecular Biology is a collection of research laboratories with a strong focus on post-transcriptional regulation. Postdoctoral scientist in the RNA Center benefit from the close interactions between faculty and students all sharing similar interests. Moreover, the RNA Center is the home of the RNA Journal and is host to world-class seminar speakers from all aspect of RNA biology and chemistry.
Candidates should have a PhD in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, or related fields, strong technical and communication skills, and an established publication record. Experience with biochemistry and/or molecular biology is preferred. Past experience working in RNA is an asset. If you are interested in joining our research team, please visit our web site (www.collerlab.org) for additional information. To apply for the position, please submit a CV, a statement of research interest and career goals, and the names and contact information for three references to Jeff Coller, firstname.lastname@example.org.
