Postdoctoral Fellow

Staff Name: 
Stavroula Mili, Ph.D.
Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology
Job Category: 
Multiple Positions Available: 
Research Area Keywords: 

RNA biology, RNA localization, cell migration, microscopy

Position Description: 

The lab is interested in understanding the regulation of RNA localization by cancer-associated proteins and the contribution of localized RNAs to tumor progression. The work relies on a variety of cell biological, microscopical and biochemical approaches in 2D and 3D cell culture systems. Some of the current projects aim to investigate the effect of the mechanical properties of the extracellular matrix on RNA localization, and the coupling between RNA localization and translation using single-molecule imaging approaches. This research program is funded by the NIH Intramural Research Program and is supported by state-of-the-art facilities on the NIH campus.

Number of Positions:
