<x-flowed>Postdoctoral Position

Deep Profiling of miRNAs and siRNAs with Massively Parallel Signature
Sequencing (MPSS): Characterization of RNA Genes and Targets

Delaware Biotechnology Institute (DBI)
University of Delaware

A postdoctoral position is available to investigate the small RNAs of
Arabidopsis and/or rice discovered using MPSS.  The successful candidate
will identify and characterize new small RNA genes, and examine their
regulation and biological function. Small RNAs exhibiting interesting
patterns of regulation in response to tissue-specific or abiotic/biotic
stress signals is a major focus.  Highly motivated candidates with
demonstrated accomplishments in genetics, genomics, and/or biochemistry and
a strong molecular background (in any system) are encouraged to
apply.  This position is in the lab of Pam Green and is part of an
excellent collaboration with the lab of Blake Meyers. The Meyers lab
pioneered the use of MPSS in plants and has strong bioinformatics
expertise. The Green lab has a long-standing commitment to the study of
mRNA stability, ribonucleases and noncoding RNAs
http://ag.udel.edu/plsc/faculty/pamgreen/index.html This position is open
immediately, but the starting date is flexible.  DBI is a newly-built
multidisciplinary institute of the University of Delaware
(www.dbi.udel.edu) that enjoys interactions with faculty in many University
departments as well as with adjunct faculty and other scientists in nearby
institutes (TIGR) and biotechnology companies (DuPont and Agilent).
Centrally located in the college town of Newark, Delaware (< 1 hour from
Baltimore and Philadelphia and < 2 hours from NYC and Washington D.C.), the
area offers a modest cost of living and proximity to the Chesapeake Bay and
Atlantic beaches.  Applicants should send a letter of interest, CV and the
names of three references to Dr. Pam Green, Delaware Biotechnology
Institute, 15 Innovation Way, Newark, DE  19711, or green at dbi.udel.edu

   The University of Delaware is an Equal Opportunity University.
