Location UAHS - Tucson
Address 1501 N. Campbell, Tucson, AZ 85724 USA
Position Highlights The Gregorio Lab in the UArizona Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine is seeking highly motivated candidates for a part-time assistant scientific investigator. Dr. Gregorioís NIH-funded research incorporates molecular, cellular, and physiological approaches on the RNA/protein level to identify molecular mechanisms that underlie contractile protein function in heart and skeletal muscle diseases. Current studies focus on the role of RNA-binding proteins in muscle function that are altered during normal development and in disease such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The laboratory generates, analyzes, and integrates high-throughput fluorescence imaging, molecular biology, and biochemistry to determine the mechanism of RNA binding proteins in cells (e.g., iPSCs, primary myocytes) and animal models that reflect patho/physiological states. The successful candidate will possess a cell/molecular skill set with an emphasis on RNA biology appropriate to accomplish the labís goals. In addition, they will possess the drive required to research complex disease and will be able to work independently as well as collaboratively.
