Postdoctoral position to study yeast spliceosome activation in Brow & Hoskins labs

Posted on May 12,

The Brow and Hoskins labs at University of Wisconsin-Madison (ipib.wisc.edu/labs/) have a position available for a postdoctoral researcher with experience in protein and/or RNA biochemistry to study allosteric signaling during spliceosome activation using single-molecule microscopy and related techniques. Prior experience in single-molecule analysis or in vitro pre-mRNA splicing is preferred. Demonstrated accomplishment in biochemical research is required. The successful candidate will use state of the art approaches to characterize mutant spliceosomes with defects in activation and suppressors thereof (see: pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30898770/, pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27244240/). The minimum starting salary with no postdoctoral experience is $53,760. A statement of interest and a detailed CV should be sent to [email protected] and [email protected] by June 30, 2021.
