Multiple postdoctoral researcher positions are available in the lab of Dr. Yohei Kirino at Computational Medicine Center (CMC)/Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Thomas Jefferson University (TJU). We study the biogenesis pathway and function of small non-coding RNAs in the pathogenesis of various human diseases such as breast/prostate cancers and asthma (e.g., hormone-dependent tRNA-derived RNAs: PNAS 2015) by utilizing originally-developed RNA sequencing/quantification methods (e.g., cP-RNA-seq: Nat Protoc 2016; Dumbbell-PCR: NAR 2015; FL-PCR: RNA Biol 2015). For more information about the Kirino lab, please see the websites at http://www.jefferson.edu/university/research/researcher/researcher-faculty/kirino-laboratory.html and https://cm.jefferson.edu/staff-members/yohei-kirino/.
Energetic, inquisitive, and highly-motivated individuals with strong background in RNA biology and/or molecular/cell biology are awaited. Applicants should have a Ph. D. degree, a productive track record, and a high writing and communication skills. The successful applicant will have a unique opportunity to work in close collaboration within CMC (https://cm.jefferson.edu/) and with other research groups in TJU and UPENN.
Applicants should send 1) a cover letter with a description of past research experience, 2) CV, 3) a statement of research interests and career goals, and 4) contact information of 3 references to Dr. Yohei Kirino at Yohei.Kirino@jefferson.edu.
