The Karginov lab in the Department of Molecular, Cell, and Systems Biology at the University of California, Riverside is seeking an excellent candidate to study the extent and mechanism of joint control of mRNA expression by RBPs and microRNAs. Our lab uses transcriptome-wide as well as targeted approaches in molecular biology and biochemistry to study post-transcriptional gene control.
The successful candidate will be a highly motivated, independent scientist with a Ph.D. in biology, chemistry or a related field, with prior experience in RNA biology. Good communication and organizational skills are a must, and familiarity with transcriptome-wide techniques and bioinformatics are a big plus. UCR postdoctoral salary scales are more than one step above the NIH NRSA scale.
