An exciting, NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Sharma laboratory at the University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC). The overall goal of the lab is to elucidate the role of small RNAs in intergenerational epigenetic inheritance. We use a unique and powerful combination of molecular, genomic, reproductive and genetic approaches to understand the biogenesis and functions of sperm small RNAs. Being at the home of UCSC Genome Browser and the UCSC RNA Center, the laboratory has access to cutting edge high-throughput sequencing technology and expertise in genomics and RNA biology. More information about UCSC and the Sharma laboratory can be found  

Applicants with a prior experience or interest in RNA biology, epigenetics, and developmental biology, are strongly encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral candidate will have an opportunity to learn a multitude of techniques ranging from RNA sequencing, single cell sequencing, and gene editing by CRISPR-Cas9. A successful candidate will have strong background in molecular biology and solid understanding of small RNA biology.

An experience in bioinformatic analysis of high-throughput data is desired but not required. Other qualifications include a Ph.D. and/or M.D. in relevant field and a strong track record of peer-reviewed publications (or currently under review/BioRxiv).
