A Post-Doctoral Position is open in the Maquat Lab at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, NY. Applicants should hold a PhD or MD/PhD degree(s) and have expertise in molecular, cellular, or structural biology to study one of a number of ongoing projects, including but not limited to FMRP function in Fragile X Syndrome (FXS), or effectors of nonsense-mediated mRNA decay efficiency. A background in neurobiology and/or stem-cell biology would facilitate the work on FXS (see, e.g.,, and a background in computational biology would facilitate both projects, but neither is required.
