NYU Department of Biology and the New York Genome Center
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
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.
