Postdoc Jobs at SMD

This page lists some of the postdoctoral positions currently available at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. This list is not comprehensive as many principal investigators advertise available postdoctoral positions in scholarly publications and on the internet. Additionally, many principal investigators do not advertise their postdoctoral positions, preferring to meet with potential postdocs at professional meetings or in response to presentations.

The University of Rochester is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to providing employment opportunities to all qualified applicants without regard to race, sex, age, color, national origin, ethnicity, creed, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identify, marital status, pregnancy or veteran status.

Departments of Biochemistry & Biophysics, Oncology, and Pediatrics

A Post-Doctoral Position is open in the Maquat Lab at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, NY.

Applicants should hold a PhD or MD/PhD degree(s) and have expertise in molecular, cellular, or structural biology to study one of a number of very exciting and ongoing projects, including but not limited to FMRP function in Fragile X Syndrome (FXS), newly defined effectors of nonsense-mediated mRNA decay, or the mechanistic coupling of transcription and RNA processing on chromatin and beyond. A background in neurobiology and/or stem-cell biology would facilitate the work on FXS (see, e.g., https://www.nature.com/articles/s41556-020-00618-1), and a background in computational biology would facilitate all projects, but neither is required.

Martha Susiarjo,PhD

Susiarjo Lab

A Post-Doctoral Position is open in the Susiarjo Lab in the Department of Environmental Medicine, at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, NY. 

Applicants should hold a PhD and have expertise in developmental biology, environmental health science, molecular, or cellular biology. As a member of the Susiarjo lab, the postdoc will investigate how environmental factors (e.g., exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals and differences in micronutrient status) during pregnancy can modulate maternal and fetal health outcomes. Members of the Susiarjo lab utilize genetic and epigenetic methods in combination with reproductive and metabolic studies to elucidate how gene-environment interaction during pregnancy reprograms epigenetic marks during development and modulates disease susceptibilities using the mouse model. Researchers are expected to carry out standard molecular biology and epigenetic methods. We offer a very collaborative, collegial atmosphere, along with a lively, supportive research community spanning the University of Rochester Medical Center. 

The city of Rochester provides a safe, beautiful, affordable, and family-friendly environment. Qualified applicants will have earned a Ph.D. and should be highly motivated and possess a genuine interest in research directions pursued by the Susiarjo laboratory. 

Applicants should provide a cover letter describing their past projects and career goals, and their CV with names and contacts of three references. Please send emails to martha_susiarjo@urmc.rochester.edu
