A staff scientist position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jeremy Wilusz, located in the Verna and Marrs McLean Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Therapeutic Innovation Center (THINC), a center of excellence at BCM that seeks to discover fundamental mechanisms of gene control and to translate these discoveries into early therapeutic development. Our multi-disciplinary group aims to reveal new modes of gene regulation, especially novel mechanisms that regulate circular RNAs, RNA stability, pre-mRNA splicing, transcription, or translation. We are looking for a motivated, hard-working experienced researcher to join our team where they will be able to independently make important discoveries while working in a collaborative, dynamic environment. The primary job responsibility is carrying out research, but there will be ample opportunities for presenting research findings at conferences and supervising students/technicians.
Develop and apply a combination of molecular biology, genomics, cell biology, and biochemical techniques to independently uncover novel mechanisms by which RNAs are generated, regulated, and function
Analyze data and prepare manuscripts and presentations at local, national, and international conferences
Contribute to the training and mentorship of laboratory personnel, research technicians, and graduate students
Doctoral Degree. Experience may not be substituted in lieu of degree.
Three years of post doctoral research experience.
Experience in RNA, molecular biology, and/or computational techniques
