Postdoctoral Associate (63269)
Postdoctoral Associate position available immediately in the Laboratory of Dr. Mingyi Xie (Assistant Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Cancer Center, University of Florida) to study the Function and biogenesis of alternatively-processed microRNAs and Integrator complex-mediated RNA processing.
The Xie lab’s immediate research goal is to further delineate the unique modes of miRNA production (Sheng et. al.-Nucleic Acids Res.-in revision), including Integrator-mediated RNA metabolism, and understand the functions of these special miRNAs in herpesviruses and their hosts. Such research will allow the design of therapies for related oncogenic herpesviruses and cancers.
