A Postdoctoral Associate position is available immediately at Boston University School of Medicine in the laboratory of Dr. Huiping Zhang to study the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of alcohol use disorders (AUD) and other mental disorders. The candidate will be mainly working on a NIH-funded project to (1) profile microRNA and mRNA transcriptome alterations in postmortem brains of alcoholic subjects using RNA-Seq, (2) construct microRNA-mRNA regulatory networks using bioinformatics programs, (3) validate AUD-associated microRNA and mRNA expression changes using human embryonic stem cell (hESC)-derived neurons as models, and (4) refine microRNA-mRNA regulatory networks using 3' UTR reporter assays. Further information about the research directions may be found at: http://www.bumc.bu.edu/genetics/huiping-zhang-ph-d/.
Experience in one or more of the following areas is desired: RNA-sequencing and bioinformatics, stem cell differentiation, reporter gene assays, and genome editing. Experience in stem cell differentiation and reporter gene assay is preferred. Strong written and oral communication skills are required.
Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. in genetics, cell biology, neuroscience, or a related discipline.
Boston University is located in Boston, Massachusetts. Boston University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. NIH scale salary support is available.
