Postdoctoral Positions – RNA pathways in development and disease – NIH/NCI

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We have open postdoctoral positions in our lab. We are looking for researchers interested in understanding the mechanisms through which non-coding RNAs and RNA metabolic pathways regulate gene expression in mammals and how these mechanisms impact animal development and disease. Our lab uses a combination of mouse models and genetic tools together with biochemical and[…]

PhD position: Chromosome Dynamics During Spermatogenesis in Drosophila, University of Zurich, Switzerland

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We seek candidates interested in completing a PhD thesis within the framework of a research project (46 months) funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). Chromosome reorganization during spermatogenesis is dramatic. Beyond meiosis, it includes chromosome compaction into an elongated sperm nucleus which is accompanied by an almost complete exchange of histones with sperm[…]

postdoctoral fellow position: Hedgehog control of neuronal activity.

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position to join a multidisciplinary project in the Alenius group at Umeå university. The project is based on our recent discovery that Hedgehog control neuronal activity in both Drosophila and mouse1. 2  The approach is to combine Drosophila genetics, biochemistry with imaging in order to investigate the fundamental mechanisms that control[…]

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 – Unit on Genome Structure and Regulation – NIH/NICHD

Posted by on April 6th, 2018

We are at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) at NIH, Bethesda, Maryland USA. Our lab is interested in understanding cell lineage differentiation, gene regulation and how non-coding DNA elements and the 3D architecture of chromosomes contribute to these processes during early mouse development.
