The Gavis Lab at Princeton University is seeking motivated post-doctoral candidates who are interested in working at the interface of RNA biology and developmental biology. We study post-transcriptional mechanisms that spatially control gene expression during development. Research opportunities are available to investigate the assembly of ribonucleoprotein granules and how they regulate the localization, translation, and stability of mRNAs for Drosophila germ cell and neuronal development. Approaches include high resolution microscopy, biochemistry, and genome level analyses, supported by the power of Drosophila genetics.
More information about current work in the Gavis Lab and our publications can be found at https://scholar.princeton.edu/gavislab.
Applicants must have a Ph.D., preferably with training in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, or genetics. Candidates with computational biology skills are encouraged to apply.
Please submit a CV, a cover letter describing research interests and motivation for joining the lab, and contact information of three references to Liz Gavis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
