|The Hargrove Lab is searching for a postdoc interested in exploring RNA as a therapeutic target. Funded projects include targeting long noncoding RNAs and alternatively spliced mRNAs that impact prostate cancer progression. Ideal candidates will have experience in RNA biochemistry and be familiar with molecular RNA experimental techniques.
The Hargrove Lab is broadly interested in the molecular recognition of RNA, including by proteins, nucleic acids, and small drug-like molecules. Current lab members benefit from a range of chemical and biological backgrounds, and collaboration both within and outside of the laboratory is recognized as a key component of success. This position is an excellent opportunity for enthusiastic, creative, and motivated researchers seeking interdisciplinary training in a rapidly expanding field.
