Postdoctoral Research Position
Laboratory of Dr. Bijan K Dey
The RNA Institute, University at Albany
State University of New York (SUNY)
Albany, New York
Research Focus: Non-coding RNAs and epigenetics in skeletal muscle stem cell biology, muscle development, and muscle degenerative diseases
The Dey Lab (https://www.rna.albany.edu/bijan-k-dey-lab/) at the RNA Institute of the State University of New York (SUNY), Albany is looking for a talented and motivated postdoc who will be working on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and American Heart Association (AHA) funded research projects. We study the function of non-coding RNAs and epigenetics in skeletal muscle stem cell biology, muscle development, and muscle degenerative diseases including Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). We use a variety of cutting edge molecular cell biology, stem cell biology, genetic and epigenetic techniques, and relevant mouse models to understand muscle physiology and pathophysiology at the cellular and molecular level. Our aim is to understand the fundamental molecular mechanism of muscle development and to devise innovative therapeutic and diagnostic platforms for DMD and related muscle degenerative diseases. Candidates should hold a PhD in molecular cell biology/developmental biology/ molecular genetics/regenerative medicine/other areas of biomedical sciences and have a strong interest in muscle development and muscle degenerative diseases. Significant experience in molecular cell biology, muscle physiology and mouse genetics is required. Interested candidates should email their CV, the names and contact information of 3 referees, and a cover letter explaining their interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. The position is available immediately.
