The Dawlaty Laboratory at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York city is seeking motivated postdoctoral fellows interested in any of the following areas: (1) Epigenetic regulation of embryonic stem cells and development. (2) Biochemistry of chromatin and gene regulation. (3) Disease modeling using pluripotent stem cells.
Research focus: The lab is interested in understanding the epigenetic mechanisms underpinning the biology of pluripotent stem cells, development and cancer. Our work focuses on the role of DNA modifying enzymes (Tet enzymes) in embryonic stem cell biology, embryonic development and hematologic malignancies. We use stem cells and mice as model systems and combine bioinformatics, cellular, molecular and biochemical approaches to study how DNA modifying enzymes reshape the epigenome and regulate cell fate during development and in tumorigenesis. For more details on our research please visit our lab websites at www.dawlatylaboratory.com or http://www.einstein.yu.edu/faculty/14514/meelad-dawlaty/
Lab expertise: The lab specializes in genome engineering methodologies in mouse and human embryonic stem cells and iPSCs and generating complex strains of conditional, inducible, transgenic and knockout mice to dissect epigenetic pathways/mechanisms and define their implications in development and disease.
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 Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, the Department of Genetics, Developmental and Molecular Biology, 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.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.
- Ph.D. or M.D. or equivalent degree, plus a record of publications from prior training.
- Prior experience in any of the following relevant areas is highly desired: Chromatin biology/protein biochemistry, stem cell biology and differentiation, developmental Biology, mouse genetics and embryo manipulation. Experience in bioinformatics is preferred.
