Our lab has two open Postdoctoral positions. Both positions concern RNA biology research, centering on RNA processing and metabolism. One position (bioinformatics) is based on computational approaches. The other (systems biology) is focused on wet lab techniques with bioinformatic components.
The successful candidate for the bioinformatics position will primarily study RNA processing variations in normal and diseased populations, especially neurological disorders and cancers. Development of novel algorithms for specific genomic analyses is expected. There will also be collaborations with experimental scientists for validation.
The successful candidate for the molecular systems biology position will carry out experiments using genomics, genome engineering, and molecular and cell biology techniques to study 3’UTR functions in cell differentiation and stress. The candidate will also analyze genomic data independently or collaboratively.
Our lab uses molecular biology, genomics, and computational approaches to study RNA biology, focusing on the mechanisms and consequences of alternative cleavage and polyadenylation (APA), and its interplays with other gene regulatory mechanisms, such as transcriptional dynamics, epigenetics, and mRNA metabolism. Detailed research topics and publications can be found at http://tianlab.org.
Interested individuals should contact Dr. Bin Tian by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a CV including a summary of previous research and contact information of 2-3 referees. We offer competitive salary and employee benefits. The salary will be commensurate with experience.
Our lab is located in Northern New Jersey, which is in close proximity to New York City. Many scientific and educational opportunities are available in the NY/NJ metropolitan area, as well as cultural, entertainment and sports activities. Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is a leading national research university and the state’s preeminent, comprehensive public institution of higher education.
