A post-doctoral position is available immediately to study novel lncRNAs in a well-funded laboratory at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. The laboratory was the first to report on a human-specific lncRNA (SENCR) enriched in vascular cells and has been a leading cardiovascular lab in CRISPR genome editing. The lab uses a broad palette of tools to interrogate lncRNA localization and function within cells of human or mouse origin.
The successful candidate will gain broad experience in CRISPR genome editing as well as single transcript RNA-FISH, next generation sequence analysis, as well as animal models of human disease.
Candidates having a strong background in biochemistry and a working experience with such assays as RIP-seq and CLIP-seq should send an updated CV or NIH Biosketch as well as 2-3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry is an equal opportunity employer.
