Post-doc position available – Individuals with experience in bioinformatics analysis of RNA-seq data are especially encouraged to apply

A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Paul Babitzke’s research lab within the Center for RNA Molecular Biology and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Penn State. The candidate in this position will study transcription and post-transcriptional regulatory mechanisms in bacteria. Experience in gene regulation, in vitro transcription, RNA biochemistry and/or protein-nucleic acid interaction is required. Individuals with experience in bioinformatics analysis of RNA-seq data are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will explore fundamental mechanisms that control transcription elongation (RNA polymerase pausing, termination and transcription attenuation), genomic identification of RNA polymerase pausing and termination sites by RNA-seq and/or identification of novel RNA switch biology using RNA Structure-seq. Applicants must have recently received their Ph.D. in the Life Sciences. Applications must be submitted electronically and include a curriculum vita (CV) that includes a list of publications, a brief statement of research interests and goals, as well as contact information for three referees. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
