A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Anastasios Vourekas, at the Department of Biological Sciences Louisiana State University Baton Rouge, to study fundamental RNA regulatory mechanisms with a high relevance to human health.
Several exciting projects are available, including small RNA regulation of spermatogenesis, the role of RNA helicases in RNP granule formation and function, stress related RNA regulation, and the study of mechanism of function of novel small RNAs including tRNA fragments. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to be trained on and further expand on high throughput sequencing methodologies (CLIP-Seq, RNA-Seq) and also classic biochemistry approaches for the study of RNA-protein complexes, in vitro and using cell culture systems.
