A postdoctoral training position is available in the laboratory of Yunsun Nam, in the Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences at UT Southwestern Medical Center to study the mechanisms of post-transcriptional gene regulation. Our laboratory has several exciting projects related to how RNA structure changes the destiny of an RNA by altering its function and specific interactions with proteins. The goal is to determine how macromolecular recognition and enzymatic regulation are accomplished, using biochemistry, structural biology, and cell biology. The functional noncoding RNAs and RNA/protein complexes we study are relevant for normal development as well as diseases such as cancer, making our mechanistic work also valuable for therapeutics research. Postdoctoral scholars will have many opportunities to learn the newest methods in protein and nucleic acid biochemistry and biophysics, in addition to working in an exciting, fast-evolving field in biomedical sciences. We use various approaches, including X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), molecular biology, nucleic acid and protein biochemistry, genomics with next-generation sequencing, drug discovery, and mammalian cell-based studies. The postdoctoral fellow will have ready access to the top of the line equipment and resources necessary for the above approaches. Information on the UT Southwestern postdoctoral training program and benefits can be found in the Postdoc Handbook.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Experience in biochemistry (protein or nucleic acids), cell biology, and/or structural biology leading to publication in peer-reviewed journals is recommended. Interested individuals should send a CV, statement of interests, and a list of three references as a single pdf file to:
