Science jobs from New York University:
Principal Investigator / Institute: Christine Vogel Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, NYU Department of Biology

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join our lab at the earliest convenience. Our lab uses system-wide approaches to investigate protein expression regulation in response to environmental stress. Our primary model organisms are yeast and mammalian cell lines. We emphasize interdisciplinary work, combining wet- and dry-lab approaches, as well as large-scale and targeted small-scale experiments.

The position is tied to a specific project, but work on own ideas and new directions are always welcome and part of our every day research life. The proposed project involves work with mammalian cell lines, several large-scale techniques (e.g. mass spectrometry based proteomics, next-generation sequencing), computational data analysis, and close interaction with our statistics collaborators. Expertise in one or more of the above areas is desirable.

Our lab is positioned at the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology. We are the primary users of an LTQ Orbitrap Velos mass spectrometer and have access to state-of-the-art sequencing, robotics, and microscopy facilities. The Center for Genomics and Systems Biology is part of the NYU Department of Biology with close links to the NYU Medical School, the Courant Institute, and other well-known universities in the city - offering a rich and active scientific environment. The Center is located in the heart of Manhattan near Washington Square Park - one of the most historical, cultural and liveliest areas in the big city.

Benefits such as medical/dental/retirement/tuition remission are available to qualified applicants, see (code 103). Funding is available for at least two years. NYU provides visa support and (limited) post-doctoral housing.

To apply for this position, please send your CV and contact details of your references via email. Please also include a letter of interest describing your background, your career, and research interests. We are looking for someone to enrich our lab with scientific creativity and new skills.

Requirements: PhD in a biological discipline, preferably experience with tissue culture and large-scale data analysis Job location: New York, NY Info / Contact:; Application: Now until position is filled
