A post-doctoral fellow position  is available immediately in Kuyumcu-Martinez lab to study post-transcriptional gene regulation by RNA binding proteins in normal and diseased hearts. We utilize inter-disciplinary approaches that combine mouse genetics, genome editing, cellular and molecular biology with genome-wide analyses (e.g. RNA-seq, single cell-seq, CLIP-Seq, PolyA-seq and nanopore sequencing) to investigate molecular mechanisms that dictate post-transcriptional decisions in the heart. Please visit our lab website for more details ( (Follow @KuyumcuLab).

We are looking for highly motivated and hard working researchers to join our group. The candidate should be to able to work as a team member, learn new skills rapidly, and have excellent communication skills. It is highly desirable that the applicant received their PhD within the last year and has shown research productivity through publications.

University of Texas Medical Branch is a part of the Texas Medical Center, which is the largest medical complex in the world comprised of 54 highly collaborative and interactive medically oriented institutions including MD Anderson Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine, University of Texas Medical School at Houston, and Methodist Research Institute to name a few.

If you are interested, please provide your CV, a statement of research interests, and contact information for three references to [email protected].
