The Kearse Lab (www.kearselab.org) in the Department of Biological Chemistry and Pharmacology at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH is currently recruiting for two open positions–a postdoctoral fellow and a research associate/technician. Our lab is interested in how mRNA translation is regulated and how it is linked to human biology and disease. Initial projects will be focused on investigating aberrant translation initiation at atypical start codons (those that differ from the canonical AUG start codon) during cell stress and in cancer. Please visit www.kearselab.org for more information on our lab’s overall research focus and interests.
New team members for both positions should be self-motivated and career oriented. All members of the lab will be expected to contribute to a rigorous but highly supportive environment, and also be active participants of the Center for RNA Biology. Postdoctoral applicants should have (or soon be defending) a PhD in biochemistry/cell biology/genetics/molecular biology, at least one peer reviewed first-author publication, and ideally some experience in RNA biology. Research associate/technician applicants should have a BS or MS in the life sciences or chemistry, have at least one year of lab experience, and willing to commit for at least 1-2 years. Women and other underrepresented minorities in science are extremely encouraged to apply. Both positions are to start mid-September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Please apply by email to Michael Kearse, PhD at email@example.com and include a cover letter describing their research experience and career goals, a current CV, and contact information for 2-3 references.
