Two NMR Postdoctoral Positions in RNA Structure/Function Relationships are available at the Institute for RNA Science and Technology (IRNAST), State University of New York, United States.

Research areas include studies of RNA/RNA and RNA/protein interaction in control of gene expression, and their involvement in human infectious diseases, HIV and MRSA. Applicants should have a Ph.D degree in biochemistry/chemistry with the theoretical background and experience in operating modern high field NMR instruments and restrained molecular dynamics calculations for determining bio-macromolecular structure.

Competitive salary for a first time postdoctoral position is dependent on the Ph.D. experience. Medical benefits are provided in addition to salary. Appointments are for one year, renewable for a second and third year dependent on successful scientific progress, publications and availability of funding. Applicants are expected to seek and apply for federal and private agency postdoctoral fellowships. The successful applicants will have the experience cited above and be expected to use that knowledge to help and supervise a culturally diverse research group of graduate and undergraduates students.

How to apply

Applicants must respond with detailed curriculum vitae, statement of research experience and interest, and three reference letters from their immediate supervisor, and others aware of their research capabilities. Please apply online via:
