Noncoding RNAs and RNPsPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Sep-05
A fully funded postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Sandra Wolin’s laboratory at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick. We study how noncoding RNAs function, the RNA surveillance pathways that remove defective and harmful noncoding RNAs and the mechanisms by which defects in RNA decay pathways contribute to diseases such as cancer and autoimmunity. A more complete description of our science can be found at https://ccr.cancer.gov/RNA-Biology-Laboratory/sandra-l-wolin.
Our group is part of the newly formed RNA Biology Laboratory in the Center for Cancer Research. We are part of the Center of Cancer Research’s RNA Initiative, which includes more than 50 laboratories evenly split between the Frederick and Bethesda campuses of the National Cancer Institute. The environment is highly collaborative and collegial, with the ability to interact with a wide range of scientists and clinicians. The position is ideal for motivated candidates who are seeking additional training in RNA biology.Qualifications:
Candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. and should have less than five years of postdoctoral experience. Candidates should also have significant experimental training in molecular biology, genetics or biochemistry, as evidenced by publications. This position is subject to a background investigation.To Apply:
Please send a cover letter discussing your interests in the position, your CV and a list of 3 references and their contact information by email to Dr. Sandra Wolin (sandra.wolinnih.gov).
