A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Mangone Lab at
the Virginia G. Piper Center for Personalized Diagnostics in the
Biodesign Institute at the Arizona State University in the Tempe.
The Mangone lab is interested in the functional genomics and genetics
of post-transcriptional gene regulation using C. elegans as model
The research plan centers on three aims:
1. To study tissue-specific 3UTR isoforms and understand their
2. To investigate miRNA target recognition in vivo.
3. To use C. elegans to dissect genetic networks controlled by
selected RNA-binding proteins and to to study their role in human
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in biology or related field. Expertise in
molecular biology and biochemistry and in C. elegans biology is
required. Experience in handling high-throughput experiments is
The Biodesign Institute is a $150 million dollar investment research
Institute. It is built on 400,000 sq. ft. of research space and house
nearly 600 faculty, staff and students.
The Virginia G. Piper Center for Personalized Diagnostics is a 6,200
Sqft research center within ASUs Biodesign Institute with 475 Sqft of
dedicated BSLII/Tissue Culture space and 400 Sqft of dedicated
Automation space for DNA Preparation, as well as, a dedicated humidity-
controlled particle-free room for microarray printing and a dedicated
scanning room that has been created to promote collaborative research
and discoveries using novel high-throughput technologies.
