Multiple positions are available @ Genetics and Genomic Sciences, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
Our lab (http://fanglab.bio; long read sequencing + experiment + computation) pioneered the fast growing field of bacterial epigenomics (Nature Biotechnology, 2012; Nature Reviews Genetics, 2018, Nature Microbiology, 2020). We also pioneered the use of DNA methylation for high resolution microbiome analysis (Nature Biotechnology, 2018; Nature Methods, 2021). We also use long read sequencing to study the human genome, epigenome and transcriptome (Genome Research, 2018; Nature Genetics, 2019). We have unique expertise in PacBio and Oxford Nanopore sequencing.
Openings: We are looking for highly motivated PostDoc Fellows and Sr. Scientists on Technology Development, Systems Biology and Precision Medicine. Three sub-directions along Epigenomics, Transcriptomics, and Microbiome.
1) Long reads based epigenomics
2) Long reads based microbiomics
3) Long reads based transcriptomics
Successful candidates will have unique opportunities with (i) a highly interdisciplinary and innovative lab culture where members with dry/wet background closely discuss and learn from each other; (ii) our unique expertise in long read sequencing, multi-omics, rich clinical samples and strong collaborators; (iii) take the lead role in projects developing cutting edge, pioneering technologies with high biomedical and clinical impact; (iv) strong mentorship in both research and career development; (v) Compensations are highly competitive with subsidized housing in New York City.
Requirements: 1) Candidates with computational or experimental background are both welcomed. 2a) Candidates with computational background are expected to have solid training in bioinformatics, genomics, epigenomics transcriptomics, or metagenomics, 2b) Candidates with molecular biology skills are expected to have solid experience in bacterial genetics. 3) Ability to learn and master new technologies and skills, 4) Abilities to lead an independent research direction while adapting to a collaborative environment, 5) An innovative yet critical thinker.
How to apply: Please send the following to email@example.com: 1) A brief cover letter, 2) CV with a list of publications, 3) PDF files for the papers in which you are first/co-first author.
Thank you for the interests! Gang Fang, Associate Professor, Genetics and Genomics, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
