Available Positions

  • Research Associate
    We are looking for a skilled, motivated Research Associate to join our synthetic regulatory genomics team, which is using cutting-edge synthetic DNA, genomics and genome engineering techniques to understand the regulatory architecture of genomic loci involved in human traits and diseases. Candidates must have an undergraduate degree in the biological sciences and past experience in a research setting. This position involves basic molecular techniques including PCR, DNA/RNA sample preparation, basic mammalian tissue culture, and genomics techniques including Illumina sequencing.
  • Postdoctoral Fellow
    We are always looking for talented Fellows to join our group. Candidates with both experimental and computational experience are welcome.
  • Students
    Undergraduate or Masters students majoring in technical fields should contact us regarding internship possibilities during the school year or the summer. We accept NYUMC graduate students through the Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences. Related Vilcek programs include:

Visa sponsorship: We welcome international candidates and can sponsor J-1 visas.
