Posted on March 26,

Multiple Post-Doctoral positions are available in the well-funded, dynamic, young laboratory of Dr. Wayne Miles at The Ohio State University Center for RNA Biology and Comprehensive Cancer Center. We are looking for enthusiastic, hard-working and independent candidates to join our great team.
We are looking for multiple candidates to develop quantitative projects to understand how RNA is regulated by either RNA-binding proteins or other RNAs in cancer cells. We are primarily looking for candidates with strong RNA and/or RNA-binding proteins skills that have experience using genomic approaches. The lab uses a number of pipelines including Ribosome Profiling, CRISPR, RNA-seq, CLIP, RNA-RNA and RNA-RBP interaction protocols. An understanding of the use or previous experience of these protocols would be advantageous. Candidates with experience in the computational processing and analysis of this data are also encouraged to apply.

Ph.D. degree in RNA biology, cancer biology, cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics or bioinformatics is required. Molecular and cellular techniques are needed. Candidates need experiences in the following areas: RNA biology, cancer research, RNA-protein capture technologies, tissue culture, RNA computation and/or CRISPR screening. Ideal candidates should have a good publication record.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae with a publication list and the name and email contact information of three references to [email protected] Please indicate postdoc application in the title of the email.
