Postdoctoral Position in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology of Stem Cell and Cancer Epigenetics
Albert Einstein College of Medicine
The Dawlaty Laboratory at the Genetics Department and the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Research of Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City is seeking a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in bioinformatics and computational biology.
Our research focuses on understanding the epigenetic mechanisms governing the biology of stem cells, development and cancer with an emphasis on the role of DNA modifying enzymes and chromatin modifications. We utilize embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells and mice as model systems and combine bioinformatics, cellular and molecular approaches to study how DNA modifying enzymes reshape the epigenome and regulate cell fate, development and cancer. We are seeking a colleague with extensive expertise in NGS data analysis to analyze RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, WGBS and HiC datasets generated for investigation of gene and chromatin regulatory networks in stem cells, development and cancer in the context of independent and collaborative projects in the lab.

1. PhD or MD or equivalent degree with a record of course work or experience in bioinformatics.
2. Prior experience in NGS data analysis (i.e. RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, WGBS, Hi-C) is required.
3. Bench experience in molecular biology and building NGS libraries for sequencing is highly desired.
4. Background in biology and genetics is preferred.
To apply, please email your CV and a short summary of your experience, along with the contact information of three references to email@example.com addressed to Meelad Dawlaty Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Genetics, Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Research, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, NY
