Postdoctoral Positions in RNA Chemistry and Biology - Binghamton University, USA

Posted on May 16,

Several Postdoctoral Research Associate positions are available immediately in the laboratory of Professor Eriks Rozners at the Department of Chemistry, Binghamton University to work on RNA Chemistry and Biology supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health. The initial appointments will for one year and may be renewable for several additional years.

We are looking for Postdoctoral Research Associates who are experts in one of the following areas 1) synthetic organic chemistry (experience with nucleic acids, peptides or carbohydrates preferred), 2) RNA biochemistry, and 3) molecular biology (experience with reverse genomics is a plus). The Postdoctoral Research Associates will join interdisciplinary projects focused on optimization of RNA interference and CRISPR efficiency using chemically modified RNAs and discovery of new peptide nucleic acid (PNA) derivatives for chemical control of complex RNA molecules, involving SARS-CoV-2 RNA. The projects involve collaborations with synthetic chemists, structural biochemists, and RNA biologists at Binghamton and other institutions.
