Post-doctoral Position Available, Virginia Tech

Post-doctoral position to study the functions of a novel non-coding RNA in the mammalian circadian clock system (Virginia Tech)

The Kojima Lab is looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Associate to work on an exciting project that dissects molecular mechanisms underlying mammalian circadian rhythms. The NIH-funded new project will address the functions of a novel non-coding gene using a combination of molecular/cellular biology, bioinformatics and mathematical models. We are looking for ambitious, creative and smart colleagues, whose expertise enriches our team.

Required Qualifications include: 1) Ph.D. degree in biochemistry, biology, or a related field, 2) One or more publication as a first-author in a peer-reviewed journal, 3) Experience in at least one of the following fields (molecular/cellular biology, generation of genetically modified animal models, RNA biology). Experiences in bioinformatics and/or mathematical modeling of molecular regulatory networks will be appreciated.

This positions carry a salary of $45,000 – $58,850 (depending on experience) plus benefits, including health insurance. Review of applications will begin immediately until the positions are filled.
