Sample Processing Technicians COVID-19 surveillance program

In response to the demand for increased surveillance testing, the COVID19 surveillance program at the RNA Institute is seeking additional sample processing technicians. If you know of someone who would be interested in working, full-time or part-time, in the University at Albany’s COVID-19 surveillance testing facility please pass along this request. The position will involve working in the facility handling samples on a daily basis so candidates should be prepared to work safety in a BSL2 laboratory environment. Training and PPE will be provided and the candidate will be working as part of a team under the supervision of highly trained laboratory personnel. Interested candidates can contact us if they have any questions or if they are interested in applying, they can respond to dwilley@albany.edu with a resume and cover letter.

Postdoctoral Research Position Sammons Lab

Research opportunity to study genetic and transcriptional regulation of the mammalian stress response. Approaches and project goals are flexible.

Postdoctoral Research Position Halvorsen Laboratory

We have an immediate opening for a postdoc in our lab. We focus on DNA-based biosensors (including COVID-related), single-molecule biophysics, and DNA nanotechnology. Learn more at halvorsenlab.com and reach out if interested.

Postdoctoral Research Position Dey Lab

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 bdey@albany.edu. The position is available immediately.
