Postdoctoral position open at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, in the Korostelev Lab: https://www.umassmed.edu/korostelev-lab/.

We study translation regulation, using cryo-EM and biochemistry. We are particularly interested in: (1) Translation accuracy; (2) Ribosome's central role in bacterial stress signaling and gene regulation; (3) Neurodegenerative and other diseases, which originate from dysregulation of translation. References to some lab publications are provided below.

Our laboratory is housed at the RNA Therapeutics Institute, a vibrant and highly interactive research community: https://www.umassmed.edu/rti/about-the-rti/faculty-members/. Our colleagues are interested in nearly all aspects of RNA biology, from small to large RNAs to RNA chemistry and therapeutics development.

We seek a highly motivated person who very recently received a PhD, or will soon receive a PhD.  Applications sent prior to the dissertation defense date are welcome.

Please submit the following information via email to: ann.powers at umassmed.edu

1)            your CV (including publication list);
2)            in less than 2 pages, an outline of your:

     (i) previous work - focusing on your most interesting finding(s);

     (ii) your current/future scientific interests, and whether/which aspects of translation regulation sound interesting to you;

3)             email addresses of three references.
