Postdoctoral fellowship in epigenetics and lncRNA biology in the Calabrese Lab at UNC Chapel Hill
Posted on May 25

A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Calabrese lab to study relationships between chromatin-modifying enzymes, RNA-binding proteins, and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) during stress. Projects build upon several recent findings from our lab, both published and unpublished. The position offers rigorous training in multiple disciplines and the chance to build a new, high-impact research program from the ground-up. Accordingly, candidates interested in careers in academia or industry would benefit. The Calabrese lab sits at the intersection of highly interactive communities of RNA and chromatin biologists both within UNC and in the greater Triangle area. These communities make science fun while simultaneously increasing productivity and offering substantial opportunities for collaboration and networking. Affordable and spacious housing is available within walking distance to UNC, access to healthcare is fantastic, winters in NC are mild, and the entire Triangle area supports vibrant local food and music scenes. 

Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. and expertise in one or more of the following areas: molecular biology, genomics, quantitative microscopy, RNA or protein biochemistry, and computational biology.
