RNA Metabolism/Use of RNA as a Therapeutic Tool or Target
The Center for RNA Biology, directed by Lynne E. Maquat, Ph.D., and co-directed by David H. Mathews, M.D., Ph.D., is soliciting applications from outstanding individuals holding a PhD and/or an MD degree(s) and at least two years of post-doctoral training for a position at the ASSISTANT, ASSOCIATE or FULL PROFESSOR level. Emphasis is being placed on wet-bench and/or computational studies having disease relevance, including but not limited to the study of RNA metabolism or the use of RNA as a therapeutic tool or target. Successful applicants are expected to develop independent, externally funded research programs and to contribute toward graduate- and medical-school teaching. The University of Rochester Medical Center and the adjacent undergraduate College of Arts & Sciences offer an outstanding research environment with established strengths in RNA Biology and excellent opportunities to collaborate with basic scientists and clinicians.
