Post-Doctoral Research Associate in MicroRNA Research

The Department of Radiation Oncology at the Washington University School of Medicine has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate in microRNA and cancer research. 

The researcher will study microRNAs and their functions, especially in the context of cancer development and progression. MicroRNAs are non-coding small RNAs that are extensively involved in many biological processes. We are combining bioinformatics, high-throughput biology such as RNA-seq, as well as standard molecular biology techniques to characterize the functions of microRNAs and other non-coding RNAs. Our lab is also interested in using microRNA gene expression profiles as molecular biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and prognosis. More information about the lab can be found at

This position requires a Ph.D. in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, biochemistry or a related field. This person should have extensive experience in molecular and cell biology as demonstrated by solid publication record. Experience in bioinformatics, biostatistics or computer science is also a plus.

Interested candidates should send CV to Dr. Xiaowei Wang, Dept. of Radiation Oncology, Washington University School of Medicine, at email address:
