  • Postdoctoral Position in RNA Biology at the University of Michigan
    A post-doctoral position is available in the RNA laboratory of Dr. Vivian G Cheung at the University of Michigan. This position is intended for a highly motivated individual with an M.D. and/or Ph.D. in RNA biology, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, genetics, or a related field. Recent graduates are preferred.Our laboratory studies RNA sequences and structures to understand how they affect cell functions. Projects include identifying and characterizing proteins that alter RNA sequences and/or structures, and determining how the resulting nucleic acids regulate cellular activities, including the development of RNA-based therapeutics against SARS-CoV-2. Expertise in biochemistry, cell and molecular biology techniques, enzymology, immunofluorescence, microscopy, RNA, and protein characterization is highly desirable. Experience with yeast biology and human genetics is preferred.The candidate will work independently, and are skillful in oral and written research communication. Salary is commensurate with experience. The successful candidate will receive mentoring to build an independent career, and be encouraged to develop a project that s/he will take with her/him to start her/his own lab.Send or e-mail a curriculum vitae, a letter stating research interests and contact information for three references to: Vivian G Cheung, MD HHMI/ University of Michigan Department of Pediatrics Life Sciences Institute, 210 Washtenaw Avenue, Room 5435, Ann Arbor, MI 48109. vgcheung@umich.edu
  • RNA Biologist Two positions available at Ionis Labs. The goal is to increase our understanding on how ASOs target RNA to modulate the expression of genes so that we can vastly improve the activity and safety of our drugs. Click here to view posting.
