A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Mangone Lab at the Virginia G. Piper Center for Personalized Diagnostics in the Biodesign Institute at the Arizona State University in the Tempe.
The Mangone lab is interested in the functional genomics and genetics of post-transcriptional gene regulation.
The research plan centers on three aims:
- To study tissue-specific 3’UTR isoforms and their processing mechanism.
- To investigate miRNA target recognition in vivo in humans.
- To use C. elegant to dissect genetic networks controlled by selected RNA-binding proteins and to to study their role in human diseases.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in biology or related field. Expertise in molecular biology and biochemistry and in C. elegans biology is required.
Experience in handling high-throughput experiments is desirable.
The Biodesign Institute is a $150 million dollar investment research Institute. It is built on 400,000 sq. ft. of research space and house nearly 600 faculty, staff and students. http://www.biodesign.asu.edu/
The Virginia G. Piper Center for Personalized Diagnostics is a 6,200 Sqft research center within ASU’s Biodesign Institute with 475 Sqft of dedicated BSLII/Tissue Culture space and 400 Sqft of dedicated Automation space for DNA Preparation, as well as, a dedicated humidity-controlled particle-free room for microarray printing and a dedicated scanning room that has been created to promote collaborative research and discoveries using novel high-throughput technologies.
