We are looking for a talented and motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to work on RNA biology in the nervous system.

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jernej Murn in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of California, Riverside. Projects will focus on post-transcriptional RNA processing and the role of RNA modifications in neurogenesis and in neurological disorders. We employ a host of cutting-edge biochemical and transcriptome-wide approaches, such as iCLIP and ribosome profiling, CRISPR-mediated genome editing, proteomics, high-resolution microscopy, in vitro neuronal differentiation, and use of transgenic animals.  

A successful candidate will have a strong background in biochemistry and molecular biology. Prior training in RNA biology, neurobiology and/or bioinformatics is desirable. For more information about the lab, please visit

The position is available starting immediately. Interested applicants should send their curriculum vitae and contact information of three referees to Dr. Murn at
