Postdoctoral Research Associate in RNA Research - Pharmacology (Job ID
College of Medicine
Postdoc Res Assoc
We have an opening for Postdoctoral Research Associate in RNA research and
functional genomics. This position is available immediately.
The researcher will study RNA expression regulation, especially focusing on
microRNA and cancer development. MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that are
extensively involved in many biological processes. We are particularly
interested in combining bioinformatics, high-throughput biology such as RNA-
seq, CRISPR screening and single cell sequencing, as well as standard
molecular biology techniques to characterize the functions of microRNA and
other RNA species. Our lab is also interested in using RNA expression profiles
as molecular biomarkers for disease diagnosis and prognosis. More information
about the lab can be found at: https: // chicago.medicine.uic.edu/wanglab/.
These positions require Ph.D. in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics or
related fields. The candidates should have extensive experience in molecular
and cell biology as demonstrated by solid publication record. Experience in
genomics is also a plus.
Interested candidates should send CV to Dr. Xiaowei Wang, Dept. of
Pharmacology and Regenerative Medicine, University of Illinois at Chicago, at
email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
