Postdoctoral position to study the regulation and functions of localized RNAs (NCI/NIH, Bethesda, MD)

Posted on October 12,

A postdoctoral position to study the regulation and functional roles of localized RNAs in mammalian physiology is available in the Mili lab at the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD. Our goal is to understand the molecular regulation of RNA transport and local translation; the functional consequences for the encoded protein and for the cell; and the disease associations of localized RNAs. We use a variety of approaches including single-molecule RNA imaging in fixed and live cells, bioengineering methods as well as 3D and in vivo models.
