Open Post-doc positions for research on circular RNAs (circRNAs) and aging at the Kadener lab.
The Kadener lab is looking for highly motivated post-doctoral fellows for exciting research on circular RNAs (circRNAs) and aging. We have unpublished data showing that modulation of specific circRNAs severely alters lifespan and are looking to investigate further those exciting findings.
We are looking for one or two post-doctoral fellows for performing research on circRNA function in the aging brain. Our lab uses both Drosophila and mammalian systems to unravel the role of circRNAs in brain function and behavior. Our laboratory is one of the leaders in this new and exciting field of research. The studies will require the use of the most advanced biochemical, computational, genomic and neurobiology tools to determine the mechanisms by which circRNAs modulate aging. Our studies range from mechanistic biochemical and molecular characterization to the role of these molecules in neurobiology and behavior. Our work utilizes genomic, computational and system-level approaches.
Relevant publications from our lab in the field include: Pamudurti et al. Mol. Cell 2017; Rybak-Wolf et al. Mol Cell 2015; Ashwall-Fluss et al. Mol. Cell 2014 as well as Pamudurti et al., Biorxiv 2018.
We are located in the Boston Area, one of the most exciting places in the world for scientific research.
Previous experience in Drosophila genetics or neurobiology is advisable but not required. Computational applicants are encouraged to apply.
