Contact: Please send a C.V. and contact information to : brian.dynlacht@nyumc.org

Benefits: Full health benefits are provided.

Graduate Students

Our lab meetings are always open to prospective graduate students. E-mail Brian to find out the details. All Sackler "open program" students are expected to complete a research rotation of approximately three months in length. Students who wish to stay longer to complete a project will be accomodated.

Postdoctoral Fellowships

Postdoctoral Position available investigating the role of primary cilia and centrosome amplication in tumor biology

Using a combination of high throughput screening with shRNAs/siRNAs and small molecules, we are attempting to understand the regulatory controls that are subverted during tumorigenesis. We are specifically interested in regulators of centrosome amplification and primary ciliogenesis and how these genes are de-regulated in human cancer. We will take advantage of complementary, cutting-edge approaches in gene-editing and cell biology to reveal novel aspects of breast cancer growth and proliferation, with an eye on discovering translational and therapeutic strategies to halting growth of human tumors.

Postdoctoral Position available in Epigenetics and Gene Expression of Stem Cell Biology

We are interested in understanding the transcriptional regulatory and epigenetic mechanisms governing stem cells using a combination of state-of-the-art biochemical, genomic, and computational methods. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in molecular biology, biochemistry, or a related field and a strong interest in gene expression.

Postdoctoral position available in Cell Biology of the Centrosome to Ciliary Transition

The ideal applicant for this position would be proficient in tissue culture and multiple types of microscopy including live cell imaging. Experience in electron microscopy is highly desired.

Postdoctoral position available to study the role of lncRNAs and epigenetics in Breast Cancer

We have assembled a multi-disciplinary team of molecular biologists, cell biologists, biochemists, and clinicians studying the role of lncRNAs and epigenetic modifications in breast cancer. We have identified a number of interesting new non-coding RNAs that are mis-regulated in breast cancer and are attempting to analyze their role in growth control and breast cancer progression. We are looking for a postdoctoral Research Associate who will pursue molecular biology and cell biology approaches to the analysis of lncRNAs in breast cancer. The successful candidate will work in a joint computational and experimental environment with excellent resources for experimental validation of hypotheses generated by genomic analysis. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in molecular biology, biochemistry, or a related field and a strong interest in gene expression and/or growth control. The laboratory is located in the NYU School of Medicine in the heart of mid-town Manhattan. A competitive salary and subsidized housing are available.

Benefits for postdoctoral fellows which are currently offered at NYU Langone Medical Center are listed at: http://www.med.nyu.edu/postdoc/ .

If you are interested in either position, please send a CV and a description of your interests to: Brian Dynlacht (brian.dynlacht@nyumc.org), Professor of Pathology, NYU School of Medicine, 522 1st Avenue, New York, NY 10016.
