Job Description with HTML

We have a Postdoctoral Research Scientist training opportunity available, working in the innovative epigenetics/somatic cellular genomics group headed by John Greally at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in a collaborative project with colleagues at the New York Genome Center. Diverse applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.

This appointment will involve the training of a post-doctoral scientist to become an outstanding researcher adept in both molecular and computational biological skills. The focus of the NIH-funded project will be on the cellular genomic events in human ageing, purifying T lymphocytes from a human cohort and performing genome-wide functional and genotyping assays on the samples. It is anticipated that this will be the most detailed genomic study of ageing performed, looking at how transcription factor activities, functional variants and cellular properties alter with age.

The training of the Postdoctoral Research Scientist will involve gaining expertise in both genome-wide assays and data analyses. Travel to participate in conferences or courses will be supported, and the project will involve interactions with colleagues in the New York Genome Center. The goal will be to develop the trainee to become an independent researcher.

The group values collegiality, responsibility, empathy, meticulous care with experiments, and a good sense of humour.

Candidates should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in molecular genetics, cell biology, or a closely related field, and postgraduate expertise (in academia or industry) in genome-wide assays and cellular studies. Physician-scientists are encouraged to apply.

The position is full-time, subject to a probationary evaluation and renewable annually.

You will be required to upload a CV and a supporting statement as part of your application.
