Postdoc: RNAi biology in intragenomic conflict and speciation (Lai lab, NYC)

Posted by on April 7th, 2018

Eric Lai Lab, Sloan-Kettering, NYC We have an opening for a postdoctoral position that will address fundamental questions in small RNA biology, genomic conflict, and speciation. What is endogenous RNAi utilized for? We earlier described a mysterious class of endo-RNAi substrates termed hpRNAs (Okamura Nature 2008), and recently recognized that these mediate adaptive gene regulation[…]

Postdoctoral positions in miRNA/siRNA biology in Lai Lab, Sloan-Kettering, NYC

Posted by on September 12th, 2017

We have openings for 2 motivated postdoctoral fellows with strong Drosophila molecular genetics experience and interest in integrative strategies to join our team. Project 1. miRNA biology in the nervous system. Although miRNAs are often thought to mediate “fine-tuning”, we revealed many examples of profound defects in neural miRNA mutants (e.g. Garaulet J Neuroscience 2016,[…]
