We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral candidate to study RNA biology using molecular systems approaches. The successful candidate will use cutting-edge lab techniques, including genomic engineering, single cell analysis, and deep sequencing, to study pre-mRNA processing mechanisms and mRNA metabolisms through non-coding regions in cell differentiation and cellular stress. Our lab uses molecular biology, genomics, and computational approaches to study RNA biology, focusing on molecular mechanisms and cellular consequences of alternative polyadenylation, a widespread mechanism in eukaryotes that regulates gene expression at multiple levels (see a recent review: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27677860). Detailed information and publications of the lab can be found at http://tianlab.org.

Qualifications: Ph.D. degree in Molecular Biology or a related field. Experience with embryonic stem cells is a strong plus but not required.

Interested individuals should contact Dr. Bin Tian by email (btian@rutgers.edu) with a CV including a summary of previous research and contact information of 2-3 referees.

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.
