We are looking to add fun, motivated, and creative scientists to our growing team. Our lab is highly interdisciplinary and we welcome scientists of all backgrounds who are interested in working at the interface of experiment and computation to tackle major questions in RNA biology. Projects span from almost entirely experimental to entirely computational (and anywhere in between), and we support training in new areas (i.e. wet-lab biologist who wants to learn dry-lab skills, and vice-versa).
Houston is a large cosmopolitan city, offering low cost of living and world-class restaurants, museums, and entertainment, making it a fantastic place to live and work. We are located in the Texas Medical Center, the world’s largest biomedical complex. Our lab’s home departments of Biochemistry, Genetics and Therapeutic Innovation Center (THINC) provide a multidisciplinary and highly collaborative training environment. Houston is the most diverse city in America, and BCM is a diverse and highly collaborative community, and diversity, equity, and inclusion are core to our training mission.
Students: If you are an incoming BCM graduate student, contact Dr. Mustoe to discuss potential rotation projects. We are officially members of the following graduate school programs:
- Cancer & Cell Biology
- Chemical, Physical & Structural Biology
- Quantitative & Computational Biosciences
Postdocs: We are looking for postdocs to lead multiple funded projects in the lab. Ideal candidates should have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, bioinformatics, genetics, cell biology, or a related field. Please send a CV, including names and contact information for at least three references, as well as a cover letter describing your interests and why you think our lab is the right fit.
Email Dr. Mustoe at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
