The newly established Ruan Lab at The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Institute for Fundamental Biomedical Research (IFBR) is recruiting two postdoctoral research fellows to study RNA metabolism in the context of health and diseases begin in fall 2021.
The Ruan Lab’s research focuses on studying how RNA metabolism in humans responds to nutrients and stress at the organism level and how dysregulation of these processes causes diseases and aging, taking advantage of unique humanized mouse models.
The current research projects include:
(1) Study the molecular mechanisms controlling the activity of our recently identified human lncRNAs associated with cardiometabolic traits. (PMID: 33048844; PMID: 31896749)
(2) Reveal how the 5′ RNA degradation pathway is regulated by overnutrition and explore its role in fatty liver diseases.
(3) Identify nuclear-enriched lncRNAs that regulate pre-mRNA splicing in the liver and brain and explore their roles in aging.
The Ruan lab is devoted to foster the career success of postdoctoral research fellows. By joining IFBR, the fellows’ research will benefit from active collaboration with experts from the institute’s Center for Metabolic Origins of Disease and Center for RNA Biology and the rich resource of Johns Hopkins school of medicine. If hired, a very competitive salary plus benefits will be provided. Located in St. Petersburg, Florida, IFBR will provide fellows a great work/life environment that Tampa Bay can offer.
Successful candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D. degree by fall 2021, and previous experience in RNA biology, animal experiments, and RNA-seq data analysis are preferred. Please submit your application package, including a CV and contact information of at least three referees, to email@example.com.
