The Huang lab at NYU Biology (huanglab.rbind.io) is looking for a highly motivated and independent individual to work as a Postdoctoral Associate in regulatory genomics. This position is for a post-PhD trainee preparing for a research scientist career path. The planned position will provide a transition to career independence through the development of professional skills; supervision by senior scientist incorporating individual development plan in support of training goals and those of faculty mentor; and publication of research findings/scholarship during postdoc appointment period.
The ideal candidate will hold a PhD in genetics/genomics, molecular biology, plant biology, ecology/evolution or computational biology, a track record or first- or co-first-author peer- reviewed publications, and prior research experience in any of these areas: molecular cloning, protein expression and purification, comparative genomics, analysis of high-throughput sequencing data, basic statistics, computer programming and/or machine learning. Experience with analyzing genome variation of Arabidopsis or other organisms is a strong plus. The position is expected to continue for multiple years contingent on satisfactory performance.
