Post-Doctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Wayne Miles in the Department of Molecular Genetics at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center in Columbus, Ohio. Candidates will perform collaborative and integrative projects to understand how RNA-binding proteins/miRNAs and other post-transcriptional mechanisms modulate tumor-suppressor gene loss.

Selected candidates will perform highly interdisciplinary and collaborative scientific research in post-transcriptional regulation of the transcriptome following oncogenic stimuli: using RNA-seq, RNA-binding protein/miRNA interaction technologies and proteomics.

We are looking for self-motivated, hard‑working, and independent candidates. We use multi-disciplinary approaches, combining the power of omics, molecular biology, biochemistry, and cell biology to address fundamental questions about how the composition of the proteome is regulated in normal and cancer cells.


Ph.D. degree in RNA biology, cancer biology, cell biology, molecular biology, or biochemistry is required. Molecular and cellular techniques are needed. Candidates need extensive experiences of RNA biology, cancer research, RNA-protein capture technologies, basic bioinformatics, tissue culture, and proteomics. Ideal candidates should have a good publication record.
