A postdoctoral or more senior researcher opportunity is available immediately in the laboratory of Alexei Korennykh in the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. We invite candidates with relevant PhD degrees to work in the fields of human cell biology and structural biology. Our research explores molecular and cellular mechanisms of immune receptors, which recognize "dark matter RNA" (non-coding RNAs) and shape autoimmune disorders and cancers.
Some of our core methods include tissue culture, cell biology, CRISPR knockout generation, various flavors of RNA-seq, RNA biochemistry, RNA biology, X-ray crystallography and Cryo-EM. High-resolution cryo-EM work is conducted at the recently built Cryo-EM center at Princeton.
