RNA Metabolism Related to Control of RNA Polymerase III and Innate ImmunityPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2018-Dec-17
The Intramural Research Program of the Eunice Kennedy Schriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) at the National Institutes of Health is seeking a postdoc to join the Section on Molecular and Cell Biology (SMCB) in the Division of Developmental Biology (DDB), in Bethesda, Maryland.
The SMCB has a longstanding interest in the mechanisms that control the production and posttranscriptional metabolism of transcripts synthesized by RNA polymerase III and their effects on programmed gene expression. The Fellow will investigate the metabolism of RNAs under the control of RNA polymerase III, La protein and La-related protein-4 (LARP4) during their involvement in a pathway of innate immune mRNA induction and decay.
Incumbent Postdocs will join the unique scientific environment at the NIH, and its vast wealth of collaborative researchers working in areas spanning basic biology to clinical translational research. The Bethesda-Washington DC metro area is a well-integrated, top cosmopolitan place to live, with excellent transportation and school systems as well as a large diversity of cultural attractions.Qualifications:
The successful candidate will have completed or be nearing completion of a Ph.D. or M.D., and have less than 5 years postdoctoral experience with some training in molecular biology, genetics and/or biochemistry. The candidate will require strong oral and written communication skills, with fluency in English. The Fellow will confer regularly with the PI but must be able to work semi-independently at developing and troubleshooting experiments, as well as read current scientific literature and apply it to their project, and present her/his data and articulate ideas at lab meetings, seminars, conferences, and in written manuscripts.To Apply:
Qualified candidates should send a cover letter that details their qualifications and interests in the research areas of the Maraia lab, a C.V. with bibliography, and a list of three references with their e-mail addresses and telephone numbers to Richard J. Maraia, M.D. at maraiarmail.nih.gov
