Postdoctoral position at Johns Hopkins University

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Ryuya Fukunaga at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The laboratory is focused on understanding RNA biology, including the molecular mechanisms of (1) biogenesis and function of small silencing RNAs such as miRNAs and siRNAs and (2) post-transcriptional gene regulation by RNA-binding proteins, RNases, RNA helicases, and RNA modification enzymes.

We employ a wide range of approaches that include biochemistry, Drosophila genetics, cell culture system, high-throughput sequencing, and structural analysis.

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic new member of the lab. Candidates must have received (or be expecting) a Ph.D. or M.D. within the past three years in molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, cell biology, structural biology, or a related discipline. Candidates with strong background in biochemical, molecular, cellular, and genetic analyses in RNA biology and/or Drosophila genetics are encouraged to apply.
