Postdoctoral Opportunity in Stress Granule Research

Posted on May 26,

A postdoctoral position is available to study biology of Stress Granules (SGs), RNA granules with multiple functions in cellular physiology and pathophysiology.  We employ diverse  genetic and molecular tools to illuminate the biological and biomedical significance of  Stress Granules. Current position will  specifically focus on the mechanisms of SG assembly and disassembly, and their relevance to neurodegeneration.

We are seeking to recruit new colleagues that will have joint appointment in the laboratories of Paul Anderson and Pavel Ivanov at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA. The position is available immediately and supported by NIH grants. Initial appointments will be made for two years with the possibility of extension.

Candidate requirements: A PhD degree (or equivalent) in the biological sciences or a closely related field. Previous experience in molecular and cell biology is necessary. Prior knowledge of basic RNA biology methodology is desired. Evidence of scholarly ability (record of publication in peer-reviewed journals, conference presentations, etc). The candidate is expected to have adequate writing skills, prepare and write research papers, conference presentations and research proposals. Two major requirements include the ability to work independently as well as in the team and a high level of motivation. 

It is expected that high quality publications will result from this work.

Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School  are  equal opportunity employers.

Interested individuals should send a CV, names of three references, and a cover letter with a brief statement of future research interests and career goals to:
