Our laboratory studies basic mechanisms in RNA biology and RNA defects in neurologic diseases. We are particularly interested in how RNA structure and sequence regulate cell function.
Applicants with at least 5 years of work experience in a molecular biology laboratory and familiarity with bioinformatics are required. Candidates should have a Ph.D. or M.D. S/he must be able to work independently and has excellent communication skills. Besides designing and carrying out experimental and analytical work, the position will include lab management. Experience with RNA sequencing and analysis is highly desired. The position provides opportunities for growth and independent research. The position is ideal for someone with deep interests in mechanistic aspects of RNA biology but does not wish to be concerned with grant writing.
Please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, including names and contact information for at least three references to:
