Science jobs from New York University School of Medicine (NYU School of Medicine):
New York University Cancer Institute
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Tomas Kirchhoff at NYU Cancer Institute in New York City. Research in the Kirchhoff lab focuses on understanding how inherited genetic variants lead to an increased susceptibility to cancer and response to cancer therapies. Our laboratory has a strong track and publication record in human cancer genetics, specifically in the discovery of germline genetic changes predisposing to the risk to common cancers such as lymphoma, breast cancer or melanoma. Our most recent efforts include the application of the methods of next generation sequencing to identify novel genetic factors that impact cancer progression, prognosis and treatment response.
We are currently seeking a postdoctoral researcher to conduct the molecular studies on novel genetic targets of cancer susceptibility, prognosis and treatment response discovered in our recent genetic studies. These will include cell-based and animal studies, as well as large scale in vitro analyses. In our team and institute we offer a highly motivated research environment with multidisciplinary training opportunities and state-of-the art genomic and molecular facilities.
The successful applicant will have a doctoral degree (MD or PhD) and a research experience in one of the following areas: molecular biology, molecular genetics, molecular epidemiology, human cancer genetics or related areas.
Desirable skills include:
strong background in molecular biology techniques (RNA, DNA, protein, Western blot, protein purification) tissue culture techniques mouse model technologies some experience with microarray technologies * excellent communication and writing skills
Non-required but helpful skills include:
basic computational skills in analysis of large genomic datasets programming skills * prior experience in statistical analysis
The salary compensation will depend on a level of expertise and will be assigned according to NYU School of Medicine regulations.
The position is available any time after January 15th, 2014 and the applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Interested candidates should send a CV, cover letter and contact information for 3 references addressed to Tomas.Kirchhoff@nyumc.org.
New York University is an equal opportunity employer and provides a drug-free workplace. For further information about the NYU Cancer Institute, please visit our website (http://cancer.med.nyu.edu/)
