Research Positions

Junior specialist in stem cells and epigenetics

Posted: 4/21/2021

A position of a research assistant within the Specialist series (Junior Specialist) is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sihem Cheloufi at the Department of Biochemistry at the University of California, Riverside. Research in the laboratory focuses on epigenetic regulation of cellular plasticity in the context of cancer and regenerative medicine. For more information, please visit https://www.cheloufilab.org/. Applicants with a strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics and cell biology are encouraged to apply. Prior experience in RNA and chromatin biology is desirable. For more background information, please visit the cheloufilab.org. Interested applicants should send their CV and contact information for three referees to cheloufi@ucr.edu. A successful applicant will conduct closely supervised research and provide technical assistance to the lab. Competitive salary and benefits will be provided. Advancement through the Specialist ranks at the University of California is through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input. The position is available starting immediately. Interested candidates should contact Dr. Cheloufi by email: cheloufi@ucr.edu.

Postdoctoral Positions

Postdoctoral Scholar in Small RNA Biology and Epigenetics

Posted: 6/1/2021

The Department of Biochemistry at the University of California invites applicants for one fulltime postdoctoral scholar to conduct applied research for the Ninova Lab in Riverside, CA. The research in the Ninova Lab is focused in the broad areas of small RNAs and epigenetics, with a particular emphasis on the molecular mechanisms that govern gene and transposon silencing through heterochromatin formation in animal germ cells and development. The projects employ a combination of classic approaches and “omics” technologies, and as such provide the opportunity for training and experience in both experimental biology and bioinformatics. The final candidate will design and perform experiments, analyze data, prepare figures and manuscripts for publication in peer reviewed journals under the mentorship of Dr. Ninova.

Required qualifications for this position that must be met by the date of application include: near completion or have completed a PhD program in the following or related disciplines: molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, bioinformatics, and have either substantial hands-on experience with standard biochemistry and molecular biology techniques (such as PCR, Western blotting, protein purification, cloning, etc.), and cell culture.

Preferred qualifications for this position include: Experience with Drosophila; experience in computational analysis of sequencing data and comparative genomics.

Additional qualifications for this position that must be completed by the date of hire include: doctoral degree.

To apply: submit a short paragraph describing your scientific interests and motivations, resume/CV, contacts of three referees, and if available - an example publication (preprint is fine) reflecting prior work to ninova@caltech.edu. Review of applications will commence on June 1 st 2021, and proceed until position is filled.
