  • Postdoctoral Position

    Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the laboratory of Professor Eriks Rozners at Binghamton University to work on a project “Chemical Approaches to Control the Function of Regulatory RNAs” supported by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. The initial appointment is for one year and will be renewable for up to additional 3-4 years, depending on performance of the candidate.

    The Postdoctoral Research Associate will assume a leading role in a team involving several graduate and undergraduate students and is expected to start a new line of research in our laboratory on optimization of CRISPR efficiency and specificity using amide-modified RNAs. Specifically, the Postdoctoral Research Associate will be responsible for biophysical and biological (cell culture) experiments to test the effect of amide backbone modifications in CRISPR RNAs. The project is interdisciplinary and involves collaborations with structural biochemists. The project involves nucleic acid chemistry and biochemistry, and CRISPR biology to study the amide-modified CRISPR RNAs.

    The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in chemistry, biochemistry or related field and experience with nucleic acid chemistry, as well as with molecular biology and cell culture techniques. Experience with and CRISPR will be a strong advantage. The position is available starting March 1, 2019 and will remain open until filled. For more information contact Professor Eriks Rozners at

  • Oregon Health & Science University seeks 2 Postdoctoral Scholars through the Dean’s Research Scholar Program.

    We know some of the most exciting biomedical breakthroughs occur at the intersection of traditional research disciplines. As a leading academic health center on the West Coast, the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) has a strong commitment to fostering new, innovative approaches to biomedical discovery. The Dean’s Research Scholar Program (DRSP) was developed to build on this commitment by attracting top interdisciplinary postdoctoral researchers to OHSU to catalyze novel interdisciplinary research. DRSP is a distinctive opportunity to pursue a state-of-the-art project at the cross-section of disciplines.

    OHSU is located in Portland, Oregon – a vibrant city in the Pacific Northwest. Situated on the Willamette River, Portland is within easy access to ocean beaches, mountains, the Columbia River Gorge, and Oregon’s award-winning wineries. For more information on Portland and the surrounding area visit the Travel Portland website.
