Postdoctoral Positions Available

Postdoctoral positions are available in Dr. Junjie Guo’s lab in the Department of Neuroscience at Yale School of Medicine. The Guo lab studies questions at the intersection between RNA biology and neuroscience. Currently, we are interested in the roles of mRNA and noncoding RNA structures in neural development and neurodegenerative diseases, taking a combination of computational, biochemical, genetic, and genomic approaches. For more information, please visit our website ( or contact Junjie by email.

Start date is flexible and can be as early as September 1, 2017. Researchers with strong interest in RNA biology and neuroscience, regardless of their training background, are welcomed to apply.  Expertise in any of the following areas is highly valued though not required:

  • RNA biochemistry
  • Mouse/fly genetic models
  • In vitro and in vivo models of neurodevelopment
  • High-throughput sequencing
  • Advanced imaging techniques

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
