Job Description

State University of New York at Binghamton

The Chemistry Department at Binghamton University, State University of New York, invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow position in the laboratory of Professor Eriks Rozners to work on a project "Chemical Approaches to Control the Function of Regulatory RNAs". The initial appointment is for one year and will be renewable for an additional year, depending on performance of the candidate.

The Postdoctoral Research Associate will assume a leading role in a team involving several graduate and undergraduate students working on optimization of RNA interference and CRISPR efficiency and specificity using chemically modified RNAs, and synthesis, biophysical studies and biological (cell culture) experiments to test the ability of triplex-forming peptide nucleic acids (PNAs) to modulate the structure and function of complex non-coding regulatory RNAs. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in chemistry, biochemistry or related field and experience with nucleic acid, peptide or carbohydrate chemistry. Experience with molecular biology and cell culture techniques, RNA interference, and CRISPR will be strong advantages.

Candidates should submit a CV with a publication list, brief statement of background and goals, along with the names of three references on line at: http://binghamton.interviewexchange.com. Applications will be reviewed on a continuing basis. For more information of our research group and projects, please visit http://chemiris.chem.binghamton.edu/ROZNERS/rozners.htm
