Postdoctoral Research
Biology of RNA Metabolism in Eukaryotes
National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, NIH

The successful candidate will investigate molecular mechanisms 
involved in the metabolism of noncoding and coding RNAs.  This 
includes the link between transcription termination and RNA 
processing as well as nuclear transport.  A major focus is on the 
conserved La antigen.  A fission yeast system is a major workhorse 
for the lab.  We also use information gained from yeast, to advance 
knowledge in mammalian cell culture and genetically altered mice.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and have less than 5 years postdoctoral 
experience.  Expertise in molecular biology, genetics and/or 
biochemistry is preferred.  Experience in RNA metabolism is 
desirable.  The successful candidate must incorporate self-directed 
research, excellent technical, presentation, and communication skills 
as essential parts of the job. Applicants should submit a cover 
letter that details their interest in the research areas described 
above and their specific interest in the Maraia lab
