1. POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW 

We are seeking 1 or more postdoctoral fellows to join our laboratory where we investigate how RNA modifications regulate gene expression and cellular processes, and how this eventually impacts the progression of various human disorders. The postdoctoral fellow will take on projects with the following goals: 

Job description:

(1) Develop technologies to sequence notable epitranscriptomes at high resolution
(2) Generate disease-specific epitranscriptomes to facilitate the study of how epitranscriptomic defects contribute to human disorders
(3) Identify novel epitranscriptomic mechanisms (Writers, Erasers and Readers of RNA modifications) and characterize mechanistically how they regulate gene expression, cellular processes and diseases. Diseases currently under investigation include but are not limited to: colorectal cancer and viral-infectious diseases.
The principal investigator will also work closely with fellows to develop new project ideas relevant to epitranscriptomics and the general field of RNA biology.

Additional information:

Salary will be commensurate with experience, but is expected to be in the range of 300,000-380,000 RMB/year plus standard benefits such as health insurance and social security. The initial appointment will be for two years. Contract extension is available upon mutual agreement. Domestic and foreign Doctors/post-doctors that work in Shenzhen can also apply for the award and subsidy of high-level talents of Shenzhen or Shenzhen Peacock Program for 1.6-2 million RMB.

Position requirements:

PhD in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Virology, or other related disciplines
Interest in pursuing research in epitranscriptomics and RNA biology
Highly movitvated and able to work independently on multiple projects
Experience with bioinformatics is a plus
Possess good written and spoken communications skills in English.

To apply, please send your CV (including publication list), a brief cover letter describing suitability for the position and have two or three referees send confidential recommendation letters to shogoh(at)szbl.ac.cn. Please state “Sho Goh Lab Postdoctoral Fellow Recruitment” in the email subject. International applicants are welcome. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all positions are filled
