Postdoctoral Positions in RNA Biology (NIH)

TWO Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions available in Biology of RNA Metabolism in Eukaryotes

National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, Maryland

The Fellows will investigate molecular mechanisms involved in RNA metabolism (this may include links between transcription, RNA processing, nuclear transport, and translation). Fission yeast serve as a model system to study human as well as yeast factors. We also use in vitro biochemistry, mammalian tissue culture and genetically altered mice. Laboratory approaches integrate cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and structural biology.

As an applicant, you should submit a cover letter that details your specific interest in the specific research areas described above and as reflected by the publications from the Maraia lab (search PubMed for "maraia r*". Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or M.D. and have less than 5 years postdoctoral experience. Expertise in molecular biology, genetics and/or biochemistry is required, as are strong letters of personal recommendation. The successful candidate will confer regularly with the principal investigator but must incorporate self-directed research, excellent technical, presentation, and communication skills as essential parts of the job.

Send your cover letter, C.V., and the names of three references with their email addresses and telephone numbers by Email to:
