A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Sarah Keane in the Departments of Biophysics and Chemistry at the University of Michigan. Our lab aims to investigate the structure and mechanism of functional noncoding RNAs. We utilize an array of biochemical and biophysical techniques to characterize RNA structure, RNA-RNA, RNA-protein, and RNA-small molecule interactions. We seek a highly motivated postdoc with experience in RNA biochemistry and/or RNA structural biology (biomolecular NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, small angle X-ray scattering, chemical probing). Successful applicants should hold (or will obtain shortly) a Ph.D. in: Biochemistry, Biophysics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, or a related field. More information about the lab can be found on our website (http://sites.lsa.umich.edu/keane-lab/).
Postdocs in the Keane lab are expected to assume leadership of their projects and serve as mentors to both graduate and undergraduate students in the lab. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, their CV, and the names and contact information for three references via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject POSTDOC APPLICATION. This position is a full-time, 12-month appointment with an opportunity for renewal based on performance and funding. The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
