Postdoctoral Position in long noncoding RNA Research
Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston MA
A postdoctoral position is available for a highly-motivated candidate to study mechanisms of long noncoding RNA biology in the Mullen Laboratory at Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts General Hospital.
A postdoctoral scientist will lead projects to understand mechanisms that control the function of long noncoding (lnc) RNAs. The projects will employ genetic, biochemical and genomic approaches to study lncRNA function including the analysis of protein-RNA interactions at the level of mass spectrometry, RNA immunoprecipitation and sequencing, in vitro binding assays, and analysis of RNA interactions with chromatin. Experiments will be performed using both cell culture and in vivo models.
Successful candidates will have earned a Ph.D. in genetics, molecular biology, cellular biology, or related fields and demonstrated the ability to complete research projects independently. Expertise in studying RNA-protein interactions in any model system will greatly strengthen the application. The candidate must also demonstrate proficient oral and written communication skills and the enthusiasm to work in a multidisciplinary and collaborative environment. Experience with computational analysis of genomic data is a plus but is not required.
Interested candidates, who will be completing graduate school or who have been a postdoc for not more than 2 years, should send a curriculum vitae, a brief description of research interests and contact information for three professional references to the email address below. Additional information, including letters of reference will be required upon request.
