The Center for RNA Biology (http://www. urmc. rochester. edu/rna-biology/), directed by Lynne E. Maquat, PhD, and David H. Mathews, MD, PhD, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the ASSISTANT, ASSOCIATE or FULL PROFESSOR level. We are seeking outstanding candidates holding a PhD and/or an MD degree(s) and at least two years of post-doctoral training with research interests in any area of RNA biology. Emphasis is being placed on the study of mammalian-cell RNAprotein structure and function, possibly using large-scale transcriptomic and proteomic approaches. Successful applicants are expected to develop independent, externally funded research programs and to contribute toward graduate- and medical-school teaching. The University of Rochester Medical Center and the adjacent College of Arts, Sciences and Engineering are part of a world-class life sciences research campus, providing excellent opportunities for interactions and collaborations, and offer an outstanding research environment with established strengths in RNA Biology. Center for RNA Biology members have expertise in post-transcriptional processing and regulation, genome stability, structural and functional characterization of molecular interactions, computational biology, biophysical chemistry and disease-associated RNA metabolism. Studies encompass rRNA, pre-mRNA, mRNA, tRNA, lncRNA, miRNA and piRNA in humans, model organisms and pathogens.
Applicants should apply online and forward their CV, descriptions of research accomplishments and future research plans, and letters from three references to Coryn Herrema, Executive and Senior Faculty Recruitment at CorynHerrema@URMC. Rochester. edu
