[ccp4bb] Postdoctoral Position - Job Posting for Korostelev Lab at UMMS

Good morning,


Would you be so kind as to post the attached and below referenced job posting for the Korostelev Lab at UMass Medical School?


Many thanks.  Ann Powers


Postdoctoral position open at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, in the Korostelev Lab: https://www.umassmed.edu/korostelev-lab/.

We study translation regulation, using cryo-EM and biochemistry. We are particularly interested in: (1) Translation accuracy; (2) Ribosome's central role in bacterial stress signaling and gene regulation; (3) Neurodegenerative and other diseases, which originate from dysregulation of translation. References to some lab publications are provided below.


Our laboratory is housed at the RNA Therapeutics Institute, a vibrant and highly interactive research community: https://www.umassmed.edu/rti/about-the-rti/faculty-members/. Our colleagues are interested in nearly all aspects of RNA biology, from small to large RNAs to RNA chemistry and therapeutics development.

We seek a highly motivated person who very recently received a PhD, or will soon receive a PhD.  Applications sent prior to the dissertation defense date are welcome.

Please submit the following information via email to:

1)       your CV (including publication list);
2)       in less than 2 pages, an outline of your:

     (i) previous work - focusing on your most interesting finding(s);

     (ii) your current/future scientific interests, and whether/which aspects of translation regulation sound interesting to you;

3)       email addresses of three references.


Selected publications (accessible via the provided links):

-      Loveland et al. “Ensemble cryo-EM elucidates the mechanism of translation fidelity”. Nature. 2017.
