The Nelson Lau lab in the Dept of Biochemistry is looking for a candidate with a PhD and prior molecular biology and biochemistry experience, a record of publications, and some proficiency with bioinformatics. Skills with Drosophila fly genetics or mosquitoes will also be highly considered. Genomics and deep sequencing experience will also be a plus.
Our group studies basic gene regulation mechanisms by small RNAs and the RNA interference pathway in animals. Specifically, we are interested in dissecting the molecular mechanisms of RNAi in the control of viruses and transposons during animal aging and brain function.
Candidates should send a CV, list of publications, and arrange for three recommendation letters to be sent to me.
