Postdoctoral research associate positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Jeremy Wilusz, located in the Verna and Marrs McLean Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Therapeutic Innovation Center (THINC), a center of excellence at BCM that seeks to discover fundamental mechanisms of gene control and to translate these discoveries into early therapeutic development. Our multi-disciplinary group aims to reveal new modes of gene regulation, especially novel mechanisms that regulate circular RNAs, RNA stability, pre-mRNA splicing, transcription, or translation. We are looking for motivated, hard-working researchers to join our team where they will be able to independently make important discoveries while working in a collaborative, dynamic environment. In addition to carrying out research, there will be ample opportunties for presenting research findings at conferences, supervising students, and career development.Job Duties
- Develops and apply a combination of molecular biology, genomics, cell biology, and biochemical techniques to uncover novel mechanisms by which RNAs are generated, regulated, and function.
- Analyzes data and prepare manuscripts and presentations at local, national, and international conferences.
- Contributes as needed to the training and mentorship of laboratory personnel, research technicians, and graduate students.
- MD or Ph.D. in Basic Science, Health Science, or a related field.
- Experience Required: None Required.
- PhD in molecular biology, biochemistry, computational biology, or relevant field.
- Demonstrated research productivity through publications.
