Job Title:

Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Cell Biology

Job Description:

A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study the cellular impact of the bone marrow failure syndrome dyskeratosis congenita (DC). The ideal candidate will have a strong background in molecular cell biology and biochemistry and have experience in expression and purification of recombinant proteins and in RNAseq.

 

DC is primarily caused by mutations in one of the factors of H/ACA RNA–protein complexes, small ribonucleoproteins (RNPs). Although several hundred of these RNPs in every cell are involved in ribosome biogenesis, telomere maintenance, pre-mRNA splicing, and more, DC seems to primarily affect telomeres. We are investigating if this is truly so and why or if other functions/RNPs are affected as well.

 

Interested candidates should send their CV, the addresses of three references, and a one-page statement of past achievements and of current and future research interests to tom.meier@einstein.yu.edu
