The Percipalle laboratory in the Science Division, New York University Abu Dhabi, has an opening for a postdoctoral associate position in the area of RNA Biology to work in on the role of RNA modifications in gene expression regulation.
The successful applicant will join a project in the laboratory focusing on the role of a subset of RNA binding proteins involved in regulating mRNA trafficking, from the gene to polyribosomes, and how these mechanisms are controlled by RNA methylation. We are particularly interested in elucidating these mechanisms during neuronal development and differentiation. For this we have established in vitro nuclear reprogramming methods to study neurogenesis and we combine this technology with cell and molecular methods, bulk and single cell genome-wide analyses (RNA-seq, and RIP-seq) and super-resolution microscopy. The candidate will work in a multidisciplinary environment consisting of PhD-level scientists, graduate students and undergraduate students.
Applicants must have a PhD in cell and molecular biology or related field. Excellent experimental and in silico skills relevant to the project (in particular genomics and bioinformatics) are required. Skills in mouse genetics are an advantage.
For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, statement of research interests and three letters of reference, all in PDF format. If you have any questions, please email Prof. Piergiorgio Percipalle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UAE Nationals are encouraged to apply.
This position is not located in the United States. You must be willing to relocate to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
