Postdoctoral Fellow – Non-coding RNAs and Viruses

National Cancer Institute

  • Post Doctoral Position - Academic
Job Type/Arrangement:
  • Full Time

We are hiring two additional postdoctoral fellows. Our group studies the functions of viral microRNAs and circular RNAs in a tumorigenic virus in order to identify pathways instrumental to viral pathogenesis and potentially lead to discovery of novel antiviral and anti-tumor targets. Currently, we are studying the functional significance of a subset of these miRNA targets and circular RNAs. Some non-coding RNA functions of interest include: viral infection, immune evasion, cell cycle regulation, and apoptosis. We take advantage of clinical samples and cutting-edge sequencing technologies. 


Candidates must have or plan to have a Ph.D. and/or MD with excellent communication skills and cell culture experience. Post-graduate degrees must be obtained in the last five years.
