Genomics of Developmental Disorders
A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Aravinda Chakravarti, PhD, at NYU Langone’s Center for Human Genetics and Genomics. The Chakravarti Lab focuses on the molecular genetic basis of human disease, using experimental, quantitative, and animal model approaches. A major project is on the genetic and functional dissection of Hirschsprung’s disease (HSCR), a multifactorial disorder of the enteric nervous system resulting from failure of intestinal innervation. Given our extensive gene discovery in HSCR we are now interested in the developmental mechanisms that are compromised in HSCR and, in turn, how normal innervation occurs.
The ideal candidate will hold a PhD and/or an MD in genetics or developmental biology and have some experience in genomics and computation; knowledge of human genetics is a plus. We are looking for a creative individual with a strong publication record and advanced expertise in experimental studies.
To apply or to obtain more information about the position, please contact Dr. Chakravarti at email@example.com. Applicants should include a CV, a one-page research statement, and the names of three references.
