Duties: Potential research projects involve working in
1)      intestinal epithelial cell and hepatocyte models of alcohol-induced liver inflammation and tumorigenesis.
2)      In vitro models of skeletal muscle differentiation and membrane repair modulated by circular RNAs

Qualifications: We encourage qualified and motivated individuals with a Ph.D. from broad backgrounds in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology fields, including but not limited to post-transcriptional gene expression regulation. Recently graduated Ph.D.’s from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate will have an excellent record of publication in peer-reviewed journals.
