Postdoctoral Fellowship in RNA Biology

Postdoctoral Fellowship available in Intramural Program on Genomics of Differentiation, NICHD of the NIH, USA , Bethesda, United States.

The Fellow will investigate molecular mechanisms involved in RNA metabolism,
including links between transcription, RNA processing and nuclear transport. A major
focus of the laboratory is RNA polymerase III and the La protein. Fission yeast serve as
a model system to study human as well as yeast La protein function. We also use
mammalian tissue culture and genetically altered mice. Laboratory approaches integrate
cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and structural biology.

Candidates must hold a Ph.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. 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. A
PubMed search link of these publications can be found on the URL listed below.

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