Postdoctoral Research on tRNA Epigenetic Biology

Postdoctoral positions are available with Professor Ya-Ming Hou at Thomas Jefferson University, Sidney Kimmel Medical College. We focus on tRNA epigenetic changes and explore their roles in gene expression at the codon level and in response to cellular stress, which are new concepts at the cutting edge of molecular biology and central dogma. We use a synthetic biology approach with CRISPR/Cas-edited genomes to determine how modifications in tRNA impact cell fitness and human helath and disease. Our lab is intellectually stimulating and encouraging global networking. Current projects are tRNA epigenetic biology:

  1. In response to environmental stress
  2. In discovery of new bacterial physiology and antibiotic therapeutics
  3. In neurodegenerative diseases.
