The Gavis Lab in the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University is seeking motivated postdoctoral or more senior researchers who are interested in working at the interface of RNA biology and developmental biology. We study post-transcriptional mechanisms that spatially control gene expression during development. Research opportunities are available to investigate the assembly of ribonucleoprotein granules and how they regulate the localization, translation, and stability of mRNAs for Drosophila germ cell and neuronal development. Approaches include high resolution microscopy, biochemistry, and genome level analyses, supported by the power of Drosophila genetics. More information about current work in the Gavis Lab and our publications can be found at

Applicants must have a Ph.D., preferably with training in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, or genetics. Candidates with computational biology skills are encouraged to apply. Appointments are for one year with the possibility of renewal pending satisfactory performance and continued funding. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.

To apply for this position, please go to and submit a CV, a cover letter describing research interests and motivation for joining the lab, and contact information of three references..
