Title
Postdoc:
Brooks Lab
Computational and wet-lab postdoc positions available to study splicing alterations in cancer transcriptomes. Computational postdocs with experience in high-throughput sequencing analysis are strongly encouraged to apply. Potential wet-lab postdocs with experience in molecular biology, RNA biochemistry, and cancer biology are strongly encouraged to apply. If interested, please send an email and CV to Angela Brooks: anbrooks@ucsc.edu More information: brookslab.soe.ucsc.edu
Postdoc:
Salzman Lab
We are actively seeking postdocs who are interested in working on the main projects in our lab: computational, statistical and experimental approaches to identify cis-sequence,trans-regulation and function of circular RNA and alternative splicing.
Postdoc:
Frankel Lab
We are seeking a postdoc interested in HIV biology and RNA-protein interactions in the context of virus evolution. Projects may involve biochemistry, structural methods, and virology and focus primarily on viral transcription, RNA export, and virus-host interactions. Interested applicants should email their CV to frankel@cgl.ucsf.edu.
Postdoc:
McManus Lab
Postdoc positions are available in the McManus lab to study biological processes relating to coding and noncoding RNA biology. If you are interested in conducting high-throughput genomic screens, or using the mouse as a model to understand fundamental biology, this lab could be for you. We have a broad focus to understand the biology of gene expression as related to RNA, including developing and using RNA technologies as tools. There are available projects that involve the study of small noncoding RNAs of biological significance, and genetic factors involved in coding and noncoding RNA genesis and regulation of gene expression. Projects are available that center on mammalian systems that use powerful CRISPR, peptide, siRNA, and shRNA libraries, unique Cas9 systems, mouse transgenics, and novel approaches aimed at dissecting mechanisms of RNA biology. The McManus Lab is an excellent training environment and UCSF offers astounding opportunities to develop your career. Anyone interested in molecular mechanisms of gene expression should apply.
Postdoc:
Floor Lab
The Floor Lab at UCSF seeks to understand how RNA chaperones affect translation and other RNA-related processes in normal cells and diseases. We further define molecular and global mechanisms by which alternative RNA isoforms from the same gene can have different functional outputs. We use biochemistry, functional genomics, genome editing, and bioinformatics to answer questions in these areas. Interested applicants with experimental or computational training should send a cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 references to stephen.floor@ucsf.edu.
Postdoc:
Arribere Lab
The Arribere lab is a new lab at UC Santa Cruz studying RNA and protein quality control. We use the genetically tractable C. elegans to investigate how cells identify and mitigate errors in gene expression, with current projects focused on the molecular mechanisms of several translation surveillance pathways that elicit mRNA and/or protein degradation. Projects span “wet” and “dry” lab techniques; we routinely make use of CRISPR/Cas9 editing, genetic screens, and high throughput sequencing. We are looking for motivated postdocs with prior experience in any of these areas. The lab website is https://arriberelab.mcdb.ucsc.edu/ and interested applicants should send along a CV and contact information for three references to jarriber@ucsc.edu.
