Four Faculty Positions in RNA Research
The University invites applications for four tenure track Assistant
Professor positions in RNA science and technology.
RNA VIROLOGIST, Department of Biological Sciences: conducting research
with RNA viruses in any one or more areas including but not
exclusively: genome structure, mechanisms of genome replication and
packaging, gene expression and regulation, host-range and cell
specificity, evolution of emerging diseases.
BIOINFORMATICIST/COMPUTATIONAL CHEMIST, Department of Chemistry:
conducting research on the structure/function of nucleic acids (RNA in
particular) through both computational and wet-lab research.
CRYSTALLOGRAPHER, Department of Chemistry: conducting research on
solving nucleic acid/protein structures particularly that of RNA. The
successful candidate will be expected to collaborate with RNA
Institute researchers studying RNA structure and RNA-protein
CHEMIST/BIOCHEMIST, Department of Chemistry: conducting research in
RNA science and its applications in areas such as, but not limited to,
modified nucleosides, synthesis, imaging, and analytical chemistries
as it pertains to RNA structure/function relationships, including
interactions with proteins, other RNAs, and small molecules.
All positions will be affiliated with the RNA Institute (http://
www.albany.edu/rna) with state-of-the-art laboratories housed in the
Life Sciences Research Building http://www.albany.edu/lifesciences.
The Institute brings together more than 35 investigators from the
College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Nanoscale Science and
Engineering, the School of Public Health, and regional institutions
including the Wadsworth Center, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and
Albany Medical College. This creates an outstanding environment for
research collaborations. Instructional responsibilities will be
consistent with the position and those of the faculty in the home
department, and the interests of the candidate.
