Postdoctoral Researcher Positions on Small RNA Biology at Thomas Jefferson University

Nov 30, 2016

Multiple postdoctoral researcher positions are available in the lab of Dr. Yohei Kirino at Computational Medicine Center (CMC)/Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Thomas Jefferson University (TJU). We study the biogenesis pathway and function of small non-coding RNAs in the pathogenesis of various human diseases such as breast/prostate cancers and asthma (e.g., hormone-dependent tRNA-derived RNAs: PNAS 2015) by utilizing originally-developed RNA sequencing/quantification methods (e.g., cP-RNA-seq: Nat Protoc 2016; Dumbbell-PCR: NAR 2015; FL-PCR: RNA Biol 2015).

For more information about the Kirino lab, please see the websites at <>  and <>.

Energetic, inquisitive, and highly-motivated individuals with strong background in RNA biology and/or molecular/cell biology are awaited. Experience on bioinformatics analysis is advantageous but not essential. Applicants should have a Ph. D. degree, a productive track record, and a high writing and communication skills. The successful applicant will have a unique opportunity to work in close collaboration within CMC ( and with other research groups in TJU and UPENN.

Applicants should send 1) a cover letter with a description of past research experience, 2) CV, 3) a statement of research interests and career goals, and 4) contact information of 3 references to Dr. Yohei Kirino at This email address is being protected from spambots.
