Post-doctoral Opportunities

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 on-going projects, including but not limited to microRNA decay, FMRP function in Fragile X Syndrome, RNP structure, links between gene transcription/pre-mRNA processing/mRNA export/mRNA translation and decay, and post-transcriptional regulatory steps mediated by SINE-containing mRNAs and lncRNAs. A background in computational biology is a plus but not required, as is a background in structural biology.

Interested individuals should submit:

  1. a complete curriculum vitae,
  2. the names and email addresses of three references (applicants should state their relationship to each), and
  3. a description of RNA research experience, including experimental approaches and technologies with which the applicant has experience.

Successful applicants will join a very productive, interactive lab and a lively, supportive RNA community that consists of more than 25 labs spanning the University of Rochester Medical Center and the adjacent Colleges of Arts & Sciences and Engineering. The Maquat lab offers an outstanding research environment and excellent opportunities to collaborate with basic scientists and clinicians.
