Postdoctoral Positions in Cellular Studies of DNA Damage and Repair

Job Description

The Applied Biophotonics Research Laboratory of Dr. Eli Rothenberg at New York University School of Medicine (http://www.rothenberglab.com/) is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral scientists with interests in DNA Replication and Repair and the utilization of cutting-edge interdisciplinary fluorescence microscopy techniques.

The research in our laboratory focuses on the diverse molecular mechanisms of DNA Repair and DNA Damage Response, their dysfunction in human disease and cancer, and their utilization as target for therapeutic intervention. Our experimental approach employs a set of innovative single-molecule based cellular imaging technologies including:  live cell single-molecule tracking, super-resolution microscopy and single-molecule FRET, along with contemporary cell biology, molecular biology and biochemical approaches.


We seek qualified and highly self-motivated applicants with solid training and proven experience in Cell Biology and Molecular Biology techniques, including genome editing, cloning, fluorescent reporters, protein tagging technologies, fluorescence microscopy, western blot and cell and tissue culture.  

Applicant would hold a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology or Biochemistry or related disciplines (biological physics, biophysical chemistry with relevant cell/molecular biology experience), and have a peer-reviewed publication record.

Demonstrated ability to work effectively and independently in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary environment is essential. Excellence in regular, proactive communication and problem solving as part of a team, strong record keeping, a great work ethic, and initiative are also essential.

Candidates with experience in studying mammalian DNA repair, or those with background in using single-molecule fluorescence microscopy techniques and related analysis are encouraged to apply.


Interested applicants should submit a detailed CV, statement of research interests, and have three reference letters sent to:
