Postdoctoral Research on Epigenetics of tRNA

Postdoctoral positions are available in the lab of Dr. Ya-Ming Hou at Thomas Jefferson University, Sidney Kimmel Medical College. We study epigenetic post-transcriptional modifications of tRNA and how they impact codon-specific translation in diseases. Codon-specific translation is a new mechanism that regulates gene expression at the codon level and it is activated or repressed by stress. Current projects are:

  1. Codon-specific translation in response to stress.
  2. Epigenetics of tRNA in neurodegenerate diseases.
