Research Fellow-Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Heal the sick, advance the science, share the knowledge.
Achieve more with the nation’s top hospital (U.S.News & World Report, 2018-2019), ranked No. 1 in more specialties than any other care provider. Joining Mayo Clinic means working at the heart of an integrated, multidisciplinary academic medical center with comprehensive programs in medical education and research that span across three group practice sites. It’s also the opportunity to support a vibrant research enterprise, with programs in clinical, basic and population sciences. In 2015, the institution received nearly $382 million in extramural research awards, supplemented with over $281 million of institutional support. Being a part of Mayo Clinic’s large institution allows for sustained intramural funding, capital equipment funding, technical and computational resources, and exceptional benefits.
We are seeking postdoctoral fellows to join our team to work on methods to expand the repertoire of human gene editing tools as part of the newly funded Somatic Cell Genome Editing (SCGE) program, which was launched in 2018 with the NIH Common Fund. We are hoping to find innovative scientists that will help us build and develop methods to edit mitochondrial DNA and RNA to help bring therapeutic potential to wide-ranging mitochondrial disease.
Preferred skillsets include: Recombinant DNA technology, molecular biology, tissue culture, mitochondrial biology, protein-RNA interaction.
Must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent doctoral degree in a field deemed relevant by the program. Research Fellow is appropriate for individuals who have completed no more than one prior postdoctoral fellowship, at Mayo Clinic or elsewhere.
