Postdoctoral Positions (4), The RNA Institute: Biochemistry/Cell & Molecular Biology
Four post-doctoral associate positions are available within Within various research projects and collaborations (academic and corporate) conducting research on RNA, RNA interactions, and RNA imaging. Supervise use and support users of instrumentation. To view the vacancy announcement in its entirety and to apply on-line go to http://albany.interviewexchange.com/jobofferdetails.jsp?JOBID=34893.
Post-doctoral positions (2), Belfort Lab: Self-splicing introns and inteins
Postdoctoral positions are available in the Belfort lab to study both self-splicing introns and inteins. The group investigates both the dynamics of retrotransposon-like group II introns and their evolutionary relationship to spliceosomal introns and the structure, function, evolution and application of the protein-splicing inteins. The successful applicants will use genetic, biochemical, structural and high-throughput genomic techniques in bacteria and yeast. We will build on our discoveries [Coros et al. Mol Cell (2009) 34, 250-256; Chalamcharla, et al. Genes Dev. (2010) 24, 827-836; Callahan et al, Nature Struc. and Mol Biol. (2011) 18, 630-633]to explore the lifestyle, host inter-dependence and evolution of these self-splicing, RNA and protein elements.
Candidates should have a Ph.D in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry or related fields, and publications in peer-reviewed journals. Experience with bacterial and yeast genetics, structure and computation are preferred, but not essential.
The laboratory is in an interdisciplinary Life Sciences Research Building and is affiliated with The RNA Institute. UAlbany is located in Albany, NY, which has a vibrant scientific and cultural community, situated a few hours by car or train from New York City, Boston and Montreal. Surrounded by rivers, lakes and mountains, Albany is an ideal location for outdoor activities year round.
To apply, submit a CV, a statement of research interests and career goals, and the names of 3 references to Rebecca McCarthy <email@example.com>. These are NIH-funded positions administered by the Research Foundation. an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
Postdoctoral Positions (3), Fabris Lab: Biochemical studies of RNA/RNA, RNA/protein, and RNA/small molecule interactions in viral and bacterial systems; Mass Spectroscopy Techniques
Three post-doctoral associate positions are open in Fabris Lab within The RNA Institute of the University at Albany. Research areas include biochemical studies of RNA/RNA, RNA/protein, and RNA/small molecule interactions in viral and bacterial systems involved in infectious diseases, with strong emphasis on the development of mass spectrometry-based technologies. Duties will include conducting an independent project and participating in collaborative projects with other members of the lab and external collaborators.
Applicants should have a Ph.D degree in biochemistry, molecular biology, chemistry or biology or related fields with demonstrated experience in any of the following areas:
a) molecular biology/biochemistry with experience in RNA and protein expression;
b) mass spectrometry and hyphenated separation techniques;
c) structural biology with experience in restrained molecular dynamics calculations.
All positions are available immediately. Salary is dependent on qualifications and experience. Medical benefits are provided in addition to salary. Appointments are for one year, renewable for a second and third year dependent on successful scientific progress, publications and availability of funding. Applicants are expected to seek and apply for federal and private agency postdoctoral fellowships. The successful applicants will have the experience cited above and be expected to use that knowledge to help and supervise a culturally diverse research group of graduate and undergraduates students.
A review of applications will start on August 17, 2010 and the search will remain open until all positions are filled.
Applicants should email application directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
