The Dawlaty Laboratory at the Genetics Department and the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Research of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is seeking a highly motivated research fellow with expertise in bioinformatics. This position entails computational analyses of genome wide data sets and very basic molecular biology work.
Research: Our research focuses on understanding the epigenetic mechanisms of gene regulation in stem cells, development and cancer with an emphasis on the role of DNA modifying enzymes. We utilize embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells and mice as model systems and combine bioinformatics, cellular and molecular approaches to study how DNA modifying enzymes reshape the epigenome and regulate development and cancer. For more details on our research see previous work (Dawlaty et al Cell Stem Cell 2011, Dawlaty et al Developmental Cell 2013, Dawlaty et al Developmental Cell 2014, Rudenko & Dawlaty et al Neuron 2013, Cimmino & Dawlaty et al Nature Immunology 2015) or visit our website http://www.einstein.yu.edu/faculty/14514/meelad-dawlaty/ and www.dawlatylaboratory.com
The Scientific Community: Among the top tier of the nation's medical schools to receive NIH funding, Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers a highly interactive and stimulating academic environment for scientists in training. Additionally, candidate's research will benefit from the highly interactive environment within the Gottesman Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, the Department of Genetics, Developmental and Molecular Biology, the Cancer Center and throughout the college. 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 housing on campus.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
