Postdoc position available – The mechanistic function and molecular structure of long noncoding RNAs

In the Pyle laboratory at Yale University (, we use a combination of cell biology and structural biology techniques to explore the architectural features and functions of large noncoding RNA molecules that control RNA splicing, transcription, pathogenicity, and gene expression.

We are looking for highly motivated postdoctoral candidates to conduct pioneering work on the structural and functional characterization of long non-coding RNAs in human cells. Please see recent examples of our work in Somarowthu et al. (2015) Mol Cell, Pirakitikulr et al. (2016) Mol Cell, Chillon et al. (2016) Nucleic Acids Res, Liu et al. (2017) Nature Chemical Biology.

Candidates with a background in genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, and microscopy are encouraged to apply. Extensive experience in RNA biochemistry, bioinformatics or electron microscopy is highly desirable. Excellent communication skills are essential.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. and less than one year of postdoctoral experience. Please send a cover letter, CV, and the names and addresses of three references, to:
