Postdoctoral Fellow Position, Alberta RNA Research & Training Institute, University of Lethbridge, Medicinal Biophysics Laboratory

A postdoctoral researcher position is available at the Medicinal Biophysics Laboratory,
led by Dr. Trushar Patel, to study the RNA-protein and protein-protein interactions that
play crucial roles in cell signaling. The candidate will perform cell biology and mass
spectrometry assays and validate the results using biophysical methods. This is a 1-year
position with the possibility of extension for a second year and builds on the expertise in
the Patel laboratory in studying structure-function relationships of RNA and protein
molecules. We employ a variety of cell biology, biochemical and structural-biophysical

Highly motivated researchers with a recent Ph.D. in biochemistry, molecular biology,
cellular biology or a similar discipline are encouraged to apply. It is expected that the
candidate will have proven their research accomplishments by peer-reviewed
publications. Mass Spectrometry experience is highly desirable. Interested candidates
should send a CV including the names of at least three referees, a motivation letter and
links to publications by email to Dr. Trushar Patel (
