The Postdoctoral Fellow will carry out studies of eukaryotic epigenetic regulation using mostly biochemical, genetic, and cell biological techniques in yeast and mammalian cells. The purpose is to make high-impact discoveries in the field of epigenetics and RNA. The work will involve study of prion proteins (non-toxic) that regulate RNA. See garcialab.org for more information. Experience culturing yeast and mammalian cells, and doing molecular biology, high-throughput sequencing, and microscopy are highly desirable but not essential. We are particularly interested in candidates with RNA/protein biochemistry experience.
Our lab is part of the Institute of Molecular Biology, a research institute that has 18 labs and approximately 150 employees. We have an administrative structure, which includes accounting, purchasing, personnel, building management, and three service centers, including genomics/cell characterization, and imaging.
The University of Oregon is located in Eugene, nestled in the Willamette Valley, with outstanding outdoor opportunities in every direction. Housing costs are sensible. Plus great food+beer, no traffic, an airport, and a friendly community.
This position is available immediately, for at least one year with annual renewals based on research progress and contingent with continued funding. Please email David at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your CV (including names+contact info of three references), and a brief statement about your research interests (1/2 to 1 page).
