Research Openings

Postdoctoral Researcher in the Sanjana Lab
NYU Department of Biology and the New York Genome Center

Position Description
The Sanjana Lab at NYU’s Department of Biology and the New York Genome Center is looking for an energetic and motivated individual to work as a Postdoctoral Researcher within a creative and dynamic research team of scientists, engineers, and life science entrepreneurs. The Sanjana Lab at NYU’s Department of Biology and the New York Genome Center is looking for an energetic and motivated individual to work as a Postdoctoral Researcher within a creative and dynamic research team of scientists, engineers, and life science entrepreneurs.

Our team works on a diverse array of projects that span genomics, bioengineering, cancer biology and neuroscience. Our focus is on developing new genome engineering technologies to understand gene regulation, development, and genetic drivers of disease. Recently, we have established high-throughput forward genetic screens to identify functional elements in the noncoding genome — the 98% of the genome that does not code for proteins. We apply these novel technologies and screening platforms to problems in cancer evolution, metastasis, drug resistance and immunotherapy, regenerative biology, neural development and autism. Overall, we aim to have a tangible impact on improving human health. This recent article in TIME Magazine summarizes some of the ongoing research in our lab: http://bit.ly/SLabTIME

Position Requirements
The ideal candidate will hold a PhD or MD-PhD, have prior research experience in molecular biology, chemistry, biochemistry, neuroscience, cancer biology or genomics, and a track record of peer-reviewed publications. In addition to wet lab skills, computational experience is highly desirable. The candidate will be expected to plan and carry out research tasks independently, and present and write-up findings on a regular basis.

How to apply
Please send your application to nsanjana@nyu.edu. In your email, include the following items: 1) CV with a list of publications; 2) a short summary of your present and future research interests; 3) a list of three references and their contact information. More information on applying is available here: http://sanjanalab.org/join.html


Postdoctoral Researcher in the Ercan Lab
NYU Center for Genomics & Systems Biology

A postdoctoral position is available in the Ercan Lab at NYU Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, Department of Biology (http://biology.as.nyu.edu), located in Manhattan. Ercan lab studies chromosome structure and gene regulation during development. Current projects include, but are not limited to (1) the molecular mechanisms by which condensin complexes are recruited to and spread onto chromosomes (2) regulation of long-range chromosomal interactions and chromatin structure (3) X chromosome dosage compensation during development. Ercan lab mainly uses C. elegans and yeast as model organisms, and combines genetic tools such as CRISPR with computational, biochemical, and genomic methods.

For more information visit https://sites.google.com/site/ercanlab/research. This position is an exciting opportunity to perform research in a collaborative environment that houses experts in genomics, systems biology and developmental biology.

The candidate should have a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics or a related field. Experience in genomics, microscopy, or C. elegans is desired.

How to apply
Applicants should submit their CV and the contact information of three references to Sevinc Ercan (se71@nyu.edu) with email subject “Postdoctoral application”.


Postdoctoral Positions Available in the Gunsalus and Piano Labs
NYU Center for Genomics & Systems Biology

The Gunsalus and Piano Labs in NYU’s Center for Genomics & Systems Biology are searching for talented Postdoctoral Associates to develop experimental and computational research projects. We study the genetic and evolutionary mechanisms underlying early embryonic development in the animal model organism C. elegans, using both genome-scale functional genomic and small-scale molecular genetic approaches. Ongoing areas of investigation include genetic interaction networks, post-transcriptional regulation, and molecular genetic and cell biological mechanisms underlying embryonic development. We welcome interest in developing both ongoing and novel research projects in the lab. For computational biologists, we are particularly interested in developing machine-learning approaches for phenotypic data, genetic interactions, and data integration. The CGSB offers a dynamic and vibrant research environment in the heart of Greenwich Village. We also work closely with our sister lab at NYU Abu Dhabi, where projects focus primarily on natural products discovery and chemical genetics. More information about our labs can be found at our webpage, http://gunsaluspiano.bio.nyu.edu/.

How to apply
Interested candidates are encouraged to submit a cover letter, resume, and two letters of recommendation to Jessica Lucas (gunsianolab.jobs * at * gmail.com).
