Default PostDoc: Genomics, Epigenomics & Transcriptomics of Bacterial & Eukaryotic Pathogens

Job description: Postdoc fellow position at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (Top-20 medical school in the US) in New York City. Our lab is in the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences and the Institute for Genomics and Multi-scale Biology, one of the leading institutes on computational and systems biology. Our lab (80% computation + 20% experimental) pioneered the fast growing field of bacterial epigenomics. We are especially interested in multi-drug resistance, virulence, horizontal gene transfer. We have unique expertise in the use of third generation sequencing (single molecule real-time, ~20kbp read length, and the emerging nanopore technique) with advantages of detecting different types of DNA modifications, single molecule-level epigenetic phasing, complex structural variations. Successful candidates will have unique opportunities to i) build on our unique expertise, large scale collection of bacterial and eukaryotic pathogens and a strong network of collaborators, ii) take the lead role in multiple projects on the innovative use of third-generation sequencing and systems biology to pioneer the understanding of epigenetic regulation in bacterial and eukaryotic pathogens for both basic biology and clinical applications. Compensations for successful candidates are highly competitive. Subsidized housing (in New York City) is also available.

Recent publications: * Nature, 2016 (in press) * Cell Reports, 2016 (in press) * Nature Communications, 2015 * PLoS Genetics, 2015 * Biological Psychiatry, 2015 * Nature Communications, 2014 * Molecular Psychiatry, 2014 * PLoS Genetics, 2013 * PLoS Computational Biology, 2013 * Nature Biotechnology, 2012 * Genome Research, 2012

Lab page with details:

General requirements: 1a) Candidates with computational background are expected have solid programming and statistical skills. 1b) Candidates with biology background are expected to have a strong motivation to master computational and statistical skills. 2) Abilities to lead an independent research direction while adapting to a collaborative environment. 3) An innovative yet critical thinker.

Experience in any of the following is a plus, but not required: 1) Comparative genomics 2) Comparative transcriptomics 3) Analysis of next-gen (DNAseq, RNAseq, ChIPseq etc.) 4) Training in molecular biology

How to apply: Please send the following to 1) CV with a list of publications, 2) PDF files for the papers in which you are first or co-first author.

Thank you for the interests!

Gang Fang, Assistant Professor, Genetics and Genomics, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, US
