We are pleased to announce a recruitment for a Post-Doctoral Scholar in Post-transcriptional gene regulation:
An exciting post-doctoral research opportunity is available in Dr. Dinesh Rao's lab in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. We are seeking a highly motivated fellow with interests in post-transcriptional gene regulation in leukemia. We have recently published several papers on the role of microRNAs and RNA-binding proteins impact normal and malignant hematopoiesis. For this position, expertise in molecular biology and biochemistry is required, and experience with mouse models and hematopoiesis is highly recommended.
The lab is an exciting place to do cutting-edge research with eminent translational possibilities and the potential to develop independent research projects. The fellow will have the opportunity to work with students and technicians at various levels of training and collaborate with clinicians to develop translational concepts. In addition, we have several collaborators that are helping us develop cutting-edge molecular biological techniques, which presents an outstanding opportunity to do interdisciplinary research. Lastly, excellent mentoring will be provided by the PI in the fellow's career development.
Interested candidates should assemble a CV, three references, and a brief research statement. Submit applications via this link: https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/apply/JPF03794
POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN BIOINFORMATICS AND MULTI-OMICS DATA INTEGRATION
An exciting post-doctoral research opportunity is available in the Rao Lab in collaboration with the Institute for Quantitative and Computational Biosciences (QCB) and the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UCLA. To add to an already a rich collaborative ecosystem, and centering around the laboratories of Dinesh Rao, MD PhD, and Alexander Hoffmann, PhD, we are seeking a highly motivated bioinformatics PhD to study immune related pathologies and hematologic malignancies. Expertise in the analysis of –omics data including analyses of single-cell data is required. Projects provided will lead to high profile discoveries and eminent translational possibilities. We boast an exceptionally rich training environment with regards to biomedical science within the UCLA Medical School, and computational approaches within QCB and the QCB Collaboratory, and there is substantial potential to develop independent research projects. The fellow will have the opportunity to work with students and technicians at various levels of training and collaborate with clinicians to develop translational concepts.

Graduate students must be admitted to UCLA through one of the PhD degree granting programs at UCLA. These include the UCLA-ACCESS/Biomedical Sciences program, MCIP (Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Physiology) and the UCLA-Caltech MSTP program among others. Priority will be given to students with an interest in translational biomedical research. MSTP and UCLA-STAR students are particularly encouraged to consider our laboratory.
We always enjoy having undergraduate students in the lab. However, space is limited. Priority will be given to undergraduates who plan to spend a significant amount of time longitudinally in the lab, for example, by completing summer projects. Please check the availability of funding for summer undergraduate students at the UCLA summer research programs website.
