Two postdoc positions are available in the research group of Dr. M.-N. Frances Yap at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (downtown Chicago campus) to work on molecular aspects of Staphylococcus aureus ribosome function and RNA modifications. Research aims include but not limited to: determining the impact of rRNA modifications of translation, monitoring translational noise at single-cell level and determining modifying enzyme-RNA interactions. The project will involve a multi-pronged approach spanning enzymology, bacterial genetics, next-generation sequencing, and structural studies.
Qualifications: Ph.D. in microbiology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, biophysics or a closely related field. No more than 2 years of postdoc experience. Previous training in RNA/ribosome biology, enzymology and structural biology is a plus. Candidates with bioinformatics training who want to gain wet bench experience are welcome.
Application: Please email your CV and names and contact of 3 references to Dr. M.-N. Frances Yap at email@example.com.
