Postdoctoral positions are available in Dr. Junjie Guo’s lab in the Department of Neuroscience at Yale School of Medicine. The Guo lab studies questions at the intersection between RNA biology and neuroscience. Currently, we are interested in the roles of mRNA and noncoding RNA structures in neurodevelopment and neurodegenerative diseases, taking a combination of computational, biochemical, genetic, and genomic approaches. Our lab is situated within the dynamic and collaborative RNA biology and neuroscience communities at Yale that includes the Yale Center for RNA Science and Medicine, the Program in Cellular Neuroscience, Neurodegeneration and Repair (CNNR), and the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience at Yale.
Start date is flexible. Candidates should have received a doctoral degree no more than 2 years before the start date. Researchers with strong interest in RNA biology and neuroscience, regardless of their training background, are welcome to apply. Expertise in any of the following areas is desirable though not required:
Stem cell biology
Experimental models of neurodevelopment or neurodegeneration
The Guo lab is broadly interested in questions at the intersection of neuroscience and RNA biology. Current research in the lab is focused on the roles of RNA structures in neural development, homeostasis, and neurological diseases, taking a combination of computational, biochemical, genetic, and genomic approaches.
