Job Purpose

A funded Postdoctoral Associate position is available in the laboratory of Anthony Mustoe at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) in Houston, TX. The lab's work lies at the intersection of biology, chemistry, and computation, with the primary goal of defining the roles of RNA structure in gene regulation.

Multiple projects are available: (i) developing and applying state-of-the-art chemical probing methods to characterize RNA structure and dynamics in mammalian cell lines; (ii) developing massively parallel reporter assays to interrogate RNA regulation; (iii) for computational scientists, integrating publicly available genomics datasets with RNA structural data to model disease processes. The position offers the opportunity for rigorous training in multiple disciplines and the chance to build a high-impact research program from the ground-up.
