Available Positions

We are hiring for several positions:

  • Stem Cell Research Technician
    We are looking for a research technician to perform human and mouse embryonic stem cell tissue culture for functional analysis of key GWAS loci using a pipeline for allelic replacement of disease gene loci with synthetic DNA to examine regulatory element function. Experience with FACS and nuclease-mediated genome editing (e.g., CRISPR/Cas9) is a plus. This position is jointly supervised by Dr. Maurano and Dr. Jef Boeke (Director, ISG) and is supported by the Colton Center for Autoimmunity at NYU.
  • Scientific Programmer
    We are looking for a programmer to work on a variety of regulatory genomics projects. Candidates should have a degree in a quantitative field and 5+ years of experience with the UNIX environment and languages such as Python, R, C, or Java. Coursework in algorithms and data structures, statistical experience and familiarity with Illumina sequencing data analysis are highly desirable. While a background in biology is a plus, we also welcome strong computational candidates with the interest and motivation to learn a new field.
  • Postdoctoral Fellow in Regulatory Genomics
    We are looking for a talented Fellow to join our group to work on how noncoding genomic regulatory elements specify cell-type specific transcriptional regulation and their in-volvement in the genetics of human traits and diseases. Candidates with both experimental and computational experience are welcome.
  • Students
    Undergraduates majoring in technical fields should contact us regarding internship possibilities during the school year or the summer. We accept NYU graduate students through the Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences. Related Sackler programs include:


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