Post-Doctoral Researcher in RNA and Cancer biology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and Comprehensive Cancer Center.

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.

Education/Experience
 

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.

Applicants need to submit their current curriculum vitae with a publication list and the name and email contact information of three references to wayne.miles@osumc.edu. Please indicate postdoc application in the title of the email.

The Ohio State University offers a competitive salary, outstanding benefits, participation in workshops and conferences, high quality Shared Resources, and many opportunities for continued professional development.

The Ohio State University is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation or identity, national origin, disability status, or protected veteran status.
