Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein)

Human Functional Genomics of Aging and Disease - Postdoctoral Positions

Albert Einstein College of Medicine

Bronx, NY, United States

The Suh Laboratory at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is actively seeking 1-2 highly motivated postdoctoral fellows interested in any of the following areas: (1) MicroRNAs in Human Aging and Aging-Related Diseases. (2) Mouse Models of MicroRNAs in Aging and Aging-related Diseases. (3) Identification and Characterization of MicroRNA to Develop Intervention Strategies against Aging and Aging-related Diseases
Research focus: The Sub lab is interested in understanding genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that underlie the interface of intrinsic aging and disease in humans using functional genomics approaches. The lab focuses on discovery of microRNAs in the human population with longevity history and investigation of the molecular mechanisms underlying longevity. To go from discovery to mechanisms and translate this information into preventive or therapeutic strategies, the Suh lab utilizes the systematic administration of longevity-associated miRNAs by intravenous/intraperitoneal injection into mice and inducible transgenic mouse models to investigate the functional impact on physiological outcomes relevant to aging and longevity.
Lab expertise: The lab specializes in the analysis and integration to identify differential expressed microRNAs in human and mouse related with aging and longevity and in manipulation of particular microRNA by transfection in cells and by intravenous/intraperitoneal injection or inducible system in mice to investigate the molecular mechanisms of longevity-associated microRNAs.

The Scientific Community: Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers a highly interactive and stimulating academic environment for scientists in training who also benefit from the programs within the Aging Institute, the Department of Genetics, the Cancer Center and throughout the school. We are located in a pleasant residential area in the northeast corner of New York City with an easy commute to Manhattan and the suburbs of Westchester County. We offer competitive salary and benefit packages with optional postdoctoral housing on campus.

Application Requirements:
  1. Ph.D. or M.D. or equivalent degree.
  2. A record of publications from PhD or prior postdoctoral training work.
  3. Prior training in molecular cell biology is preferred.
  4. Prior experience in microRNA and/or mouse study is highly desired.
To apply, please email your CV and a short cover letter summarizing your experience, along with the contact information of three references to addressed to Yousin Suh, Ph.D., Professor of Genetics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, NY.
