Postdoctoral Fellow, Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics

June 1, 2022

Are you interested in – modeling RNA regulatory kinetics? quantitative models of RNA regulation? transcriptome-wide measurements of RBP-RNA interactions? RNA regulation? Then we want you!! Dr. Neel Mukherjee seeks to hire a Postdoctoral Fellow to work in his highly collaborative RNA Biology Lab, part of both the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics and the RNA Bioscience Initiative at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.  The objective of our research is to understand RNA regulatory networks and their dysregulation in human disease. Specifically we explore the role of RNA regulation in controlling the timing of biological responses, focusing on human steroid hormone production. We also utilize next-generation RNA technologies to study treatment-resistant cancer, diabetes, and hypertension in collaboration with physician/scientists at CU Anschutz.

Postdoctoral Fellow, Craniofacial Biology

June 1, 2022

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Katherine Fantauzzo in the Department of Craniofacial Biology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus to characterize alternative RNA splicing mediated by the RNA-binding protein Srsf3 during mouse craniofacial development. This project will combine conditional mutagenesis in the mouse embryo with next-generation sequencing to test the hypothesis that Srsf3-dependent alternative RNA splicing mediates reciprocal signaling between the ectoderm and neural crest-derived mesenchyme during mouse craniofacial development. We are seeking highly motivated, creative and interactive applicants with the ability to work independently. Preference will be given to applicants with a strong background in mouse developmental biology who published a first-author paper as a result of their Ph.D. work. More information about our group and research interests can be found on our website http://www.fantauzzolab.org

Postdoctoral Fellow, Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics

June 1, 2022

The laboratory of Dr. Sujatha Jagannathan seeks to hire a Postdoctoral Fellow to work on leading edge questions in RNA biology pursued as part of our research program outlined below. Our lab is in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics and part of the RNA Bioscience Initiative at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Our lab studies how cells detect and degrade aberrant RNAs, and how dysregulation of this surveillance process contributes to human disease. Interested applicants may visit jagannathan-lab.org for more information about the lab. The long-term goal of our research program is to understand the molecular logic governing the varying efficiency in RNA quality control and its impact on gene expression, and in turn, cellular phenotypes. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to contribute to projects related to cellular mRNA surveillance using imaging, genome engineering, and high-throughput sequencing, as well as develop their own research direction within the lab’s general interest.
