The Hayes laboratory at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine is recruiting two post-doctoral fellows for NIH-funded research on RNA binding protein dynamics and neurodegeneration.
Post-doc position 1: wet lab focus
Post-doc position 2: bioinformatics focus with opportunities for wet lab exposure as desired
Our laboratory studies the disruption of RNA binding proteins, including TDP-43 and other hnRNP proteins, in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD). For recent work see: https://doi.org/10.1101/2021.08.24.457459 and https://doi.org/10.7554/eLife.51685. We are particularly interested in how RNA processing and nucleocytoplasmic transport intersect to regulate the localization and physiological roles of RNA binding proteins and applying that knowledge to develop novel therapeutics. Our laboratory is located within a highly collaborative network of neurodegeneration labs at JHU, providing an outstanding interdisciplinary training environment.
Candidates should have a PhD and a strong track-record of peer reviewed publications. We are particularly interested to recruit candidates from diverse backgrounds, with expertise in RNA metabolism, RNA-protein interactions, and splicing. Positions are fully funded though opportunities for grant-writing will be encouraged to prepare candidates for the next stage. Interested candidates should email CV to Dr. Lindsey Hayes (firstname.lastname@example.org).
