position in genetics and genomics of stem cells and development
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 actively seeking highly motivated
postdoctoral fellows to be part of a young and energetic team studying the epigenetics
and genomics of stem cells, development and cancer.
Central theme of research: Our research focuses on understanding
the epigenetic mechanisms governing the biology of stem cells, development and
cancer with an emphasis on the role of DNA modifying enzymes DNMTs
and Tets in DNA (de)methylation and hydroxymethylation in pluripotent,
multipotent and germ
cells. 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
Lab expertise: The
lab specializes in state-of-the-art technologies of genome engineering in mouse
and human embryonic stem cells and iPSCs and generating complex strains of conditional,
inducible, transgenic and knockout mice to dissect epigenetic pathways and mechanisms
in vitro and in vivo.
or M.D. or equivalent degree
record of publication from PhD or prior postdoc work
experience with general tissue culture, molecular biology and mouse work
experience in bioinformatics, mainly genomic analysis of DNA and histone
modifications, expression profiling and high through put sequencing data from
RNA-seq, MeDIP-seq and ChIP-seq.
training/background in stem cell/developmental biology, genetics and molecular
biology is preferred.
To apply, please email your CV, a cover

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 postdoctoral housing on campus.
