Postdoctoral Position, Laboratory of Sandra Wolin, National Cancer Institute

The Wolin laboratory recently moved to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as part of a major new initiative in RNA Biology.

A fully funded postdoctoral position is available to study RNA surveillance pathways and the mechanisms by which defects in RNA decay pathways contribute to diseases such as cancer and autoimmunity. A more complete description of our science can be found at

Our group is part of the newly formed RNA Biology Laboratory in the Center for Cancer Research. We are part of the Center for Cancer Research’s RNA Initiative, which includes more than 50 laboratories at the National Cancer Institute. The environment is highly collaborative and collegial, with the ability to interact with a wide range of scientists and clinicians. The stable funding and extraordinary resources available at the NIH make this an ideal position for a motivated candidate who is seeking additional training in RNA biology.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. and less than five years of postdoctoral experience. Candidates should also have significant experimental training in molecular biology, genetics or biochemistry, as evidenced by publications.

To apply, please send a cover letter discussing your interests in the position, your CV, and contact information for three references to
