Postdoctoral Positions Available, Lab of Dr. Junjie Guo’s at Yale University

Postdoctoral positions are available in Dr. Junjie Guo’s laboratory at Yale University. Taking a combination of computational, biochemical, genetic, and genomic approaches, the Guo lab studies questions at the intersection between RNA biology and neuroscience, including:

  • Biochemical properties of repeat RNAs and their roles in neurological disorders
  • RNA transport and translational control in neurons
  • Noncoding RNA functions and mechanisms

The Guo lab is situated within the dynamic and collaborative RNA biology and neuroscience communities at Yale that includes the Yale Center for RNA Science and Medicine, the Program in Cellular Neuroscience, Neurodegeneration and Repair (CNNR), and the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience at Yale.

Candidates should receive a doctoral degree no more than 2 years before the start date. Researchers with strong interest in RNA biology and neuroscience, regardless of their training background, are welcome to apply. Expertise in the following areas is desirable though not required:

  • Animal genetics (any model organism)
  • High-throughput screening
  • Stem cell biology

Please email your application to, including:

  • A cover letter describing your past training, research interests and career goals
  • A detailed CV
  • Contact information of referees
