Emory University announces the opening for a Postdoctoral position investigating human non-coding RNA risk factor networks in neuropsychiatric diseases.
This position supported by new NIH funding is available immediately in the Feng lab within the department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology at Emory University School of Medicine. We are seeking for a highly motivated individual to investigate human non-coding RNA networks in neuronal and glial development and neuropsychiatric diseases.
The lab has multiple on-going projects investigating the functional integration between human long non-coding RNAs and circular RNAs with RNA-binding proteins and microRNAs in neuronal and oligodendroglia development and affected in neuropsychiatric disorders and myelin diseases. Successful candidates will work in a highly collaborative environment that offers a multidisciplinary research platform utilizing human iPSCs, neuronal and oligodendroglia cell cultures, as well as genetically engineered mouse models and cutting edge molecular, cellular, and genomic technologies. Applicants are expected to have a recent PhD degree, strong experience in molecular and cell biology, and skills in written and verbal communication in English. Experience in human iPSC-derived neural cultures and/or RNA biology are highly desired.
Interested applicants should apply on Emory website and include their cover letter, resume and list of professional references.
