A newly-established NIH funded laboratory in the Center for Reproductive Medicine & Infertility, Weill Medical College of Cornell University in New York City, is seeking to recruit 2 post-doctoral fellows who is interested in pursuing laboratory-based research projects.
The laboratory focuses on the epigenetic mechanisms of pluripotency in stem cells and embryos employing various mouse models established. We are particularly interested in using single cell analysis and the low-input ChIP-sequencing approaches for functional dissection of histone variant H3.3 during reprogramming and development. Current research projects include: (1) defining the contribution of H3.3 to pluripotency using the model of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), (2) H3.3-mediated zygotic genome activation (ZGA) during early embryogenesis. More information can be also found: http://vivo.med.cornell.edu/display/cwid-duw2001.
The ideal candidates will have a track record of excellence in research with expertise in Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP-Seq) assay, NGS technology, and pluripotent stem cells. Applicants with knowledge of epigenetics, chromatin and bioinformatics are desired.
Salary is commensurate with experience or in accordance with the NIH standard. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, CV with the names of three references to Dr. Duancheng Wen (email@example.com).
Weill Cornell Medicine is a comprehensive academic medical center that’s committed to excellence in patient care, scientific discovery, and the education of future physicians in New York City and around the world. Our doctors and scientists-faculty from Weill Cornell Medical College, Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, and the Weill Cornell Physician Organization-are engaged in world-class clinical care and cutting-edge research that connect patients to the latest treatment innovations and prevention strategies. Located in the heart of the Upper East Side’s scientific corridor, Weill Cornell Medicine’s powerful network of collaborators extends to its parent university Cornell University; to Qatar, where an international campus offers a U.S. medical degree; and to programs in Tanzania, Haiti, Brazil, Austria and Turkey. Our medical practices serve communities throughout New York City, and our faculty provide comprehensive care at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital, and NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens. At Weill Cornell Medicine, we work together to treat each individual, not just their conditions or illnesses, as we strive to deliver the finest possible care for our patients – the center of everything we do.
