Multiple funded postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Joe Yesselman in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The Yesselman lab pursues an interdisciplinary research program of high-throughput biochemical techniques, computational modeling, and robotics-based assays to interrogate the 3D structure of RNA and design novel functional RNAs. Our research program aims to address major open questions in the following areas:
1. Based on biochemical data, develop methods to predict the 3D structure and thermodynamics of biological RNAs.
2. Designing and improving RNA structures for biological sensing with downstream therapeutics and cell-free systems applications.
3. Characterizing fundamental RNA-small molecule interactions to build a predictive model.
If these or related projects interest you or you are just passionate about uncovering the fundamental principles of RNA folding and design, then please apply. Previous training in any of the following or related fields is preferred but not required: RNA biochemistry, structural biology, and computational modeling/programming.
Prospective postdoctoral scholars should email your CV to Joe Yesselman, along with a cover letter briefly explaining your research interests, research accomplishments, reasons for pursuing a position in the Yesselman Lab, and contact information for two professional references.
