We have an opening for postdoctoral research associate in RNA research and functional genomics. This position is available immediately.

The researcher will study RNA expression regulation, especially focusing on microRNA and cancer development. MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that are extensively involved in many biological processes. We are particularly interested in combining bioinformatics, high-throughput biology such as RNA-seq, CRISPR screening and single cell sequencing, as well as standard molecular biology techniques to characterize the functions of microRNA and other RNA species. Our lab is also interested in using RNA expression profiles as molecular biomarkers for disease 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 related fields.
