This position is an excellent and exciting opportunity to gain exposure to all aspects of translational medicine (patent law, formulation, pharmacodynamics and toxicology, clinical trials, and FDA regulations), while exploring basic science mechanisms related to the novel functions of calreticulin for a variety clinical applications and also working as a liaison with Tissue Regeneration Sciences, a biotech startup.

Our laboratory discovered that the calcium-binding endoplasmic reticulum chaperone protein, calreticulin (CRT) has profound positive biological effects on wound repair and tissue regeneration, creating an exciting new research field. Research findings show that topical application of CRT heals wounds without scarring through the process of tissue regeneration. In vitro, CRT induces the following effects:

  • migration of cells to resurface the wound
  • proliferation of cells to populate the wound
  • production of extracellular matrix proteins to remodel and reconstruct the wound defect
  • removal of dead cells for wound debridement
  • prevention of infection

Studies are underway to understand the mechanisms and pathways involved in these novel extracellular functions of CRT, as well as in the structure and function relationships of the molecule. We prefer candidates who demonstrate the ability to be creative, highly motivated, and work independently and who have a strong background in tissue culture, cell biology and general molecular biology, and biochemical techniques, including migration assays. NYU Langone provides a highly enriching and interactive basic science environment and well-renowned young scientist programs for independent growth. This position is limited to U.S. citizens and candidates with a green card, current J1 visa, or other visa.

New Treatment Paradigms for Lung Cancer—November 2, 2020

The Poirier Laboratory, part of NYU Langone’s Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center, is seeking highly motivated, organized, and creative candidates to take on mentored leadership roles in the laboratory and train to become fully independent academic scientists. Successful candidates can expect a collaborative and supportive laboratory environment and to be immersed in scientific and technical excellence in the heart of New York City. Positions are immediately available on two projects.

Genome Engineering Technologies for Cancer Research

The rate at which new somatic cancer variants are discovered far outpaces our ability to study their function. Similarly, the majority of germline variants are of uncertain or disputed significance. While genome engineering technologies have been transformative for validation of small numbers of genetic variants, the vast majority of variants must still be painstakingly engineered one by one. We develop genome engineering technologies that enable parallel orchestration of large numbers of genetic variants in a single experiment in order to study their function. A postdoctoral fellow is needed to bring a working proof-of-concept system to the finish line.

Cellular Modulators of Replication Stress and Their Role in Acquired Chemotherapy Resistance

DNA replication is a highly regulated process. Cells have evolved to be robust to perturbations to DNA replication by a variety of genetic insults. Cancer cells vary widely in tolerance of replication stress, impacting response to a number of chemotherapeutic agents. We seek to understand the mechanistic basis underlying how normal and cancer cells differ in their ability to cope with replication stress induced by DNA damaging chemotherapy and how these responses are regulated during development of clinical acquired chemoresistance.

A postdoctoral fellow is needed to characterize an understudied modulator of replication stress using state-of-the-art biochemical methods and advanced microscopy using model systems developed during the last 6 months.

Candidates must be a recent PhD graduate and be proficient in several of the following technical areas: molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology; human cell culture; CRISPR; affinity purification; and/or wide-field, confocal, and super-resolution microscopy. We seek applicants with a proven track record in the field of DNA damage response, genome engineering, genomic instability, or replication stress, as demonstrated with relevant publications.

Other qualifications for both positions include the following characteristics:

  • demonstrated scientific rigor, scientific excellence, and technical excellence
  • independent, self-motivated, and innovative
  • excellent written and oral communication skills
  • willingness to seek out grant funding from external sources in support of their independent research and may participate in writing grant proposals
  • outstanding interpersonal skills, strong work ethic & organizational skills
  • ability to work productively and constructively in a team environment
  • ability to excel in a goal-oriented, multifaceted, and fast-moving team environment

Interested candidates should email their CV and a brief statement of research to John T. Poirier, PhD, at john.poirier@nyulangone.org. Applications that do not demonstrate these qualifications will not be considered.

Biostatistics and Neuroepidemiology—October 26, 2020

A postdoctoral position in biostatistics and neuroepidemiology is available immediately in the laboratory of Joel Salinas, MD, part of NYU Langone’s Department of Neurology. The Universal Nuanced Insights for Cognitive Resilience Laboratory, also called the UNICORN Lab, is hiring a diligent and prolific postdoctoral fellow that we hope will grow as a leader with our lab.

The postdoc will help lead our lab’s work on quantitative social phenotyping and fundamental social neuroepidemiology to better understand mechanisms and potential intervention strategies for social determinants of brain health. Our mission is to improve brain health at the population level by better understanding and precisely targeting upstream social determinants of brain health.

Our guiding hypothesis is that social environments alter the biology of the brain and are crucial to brain health. We aim to understand the mechanisms through which these social determinants alter biology and then harness what we learn to design and implement strategies for improving population-level brain health using interventions that are simultaneously universal, precise, and human-centered. We expect those working with us to care about this mission as well.

We are currently studying the relationship between social environment factors and brain health outcomes by using one of the largest, closely followed, community-based epidemiologic cohorts in the United States: the Framingham Heart Study (FHS). In this National Institutes of Health (NIH)–funded project, the psychosocial factors of interest include measures of social network, social support, and loneliness. Key neurologic outcomes of interest include incidence of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, measures of cognitive resilience, and a rich longitudinal collection of molecular, physiologic, neuropsychologic, MRI/PET imaging, and other markers of vulnerability for cognitive decline. This comprehensive approach allows us to bridge the gap between observable psychosocial factors and the cellular mechanisms that lead to age-related neurologic disease and cognitive decline.

The postdoc spearheads biostatistical and other epidemiologic analyses. A top priority is to formulate, develop, and execute approaches for data analysis and data visualization. To do this, we use advanced biostatistical methods and an understanding of methods in clinical epidemiology, including regression modeling and causal inference, to probe neurobiological pathways in social determinants of brain health with large epidemiologic cohort studies.

Using the FHS and other epidemiologic datasets, you develop and implement approaches for classifying health states, predicting disease severity and trajectory, and uncovering latent features and latent classes in healthy brain/cognitive aging and neurodegenerative disease states. We expect you to lead these projects with the assistance of a research coordinator and in partnership with biostatistics faculty, the FHS Neurology Group biostatistical and data management team, NYU Langone’s DataCore, and the data management and statistics core at the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, part of NYU Langone’s Department of Neurology. You will be celebrated for reliably meeting realistic project goals on time, elevating the status and tangible impact of our lab, and for making progress in your professional growth.

Specific responsibilities include the following:

  • acquiring and processing neurological, psychosocial, behavioral, and other epidemiologic data
  • analyzing data and synthesizing results
  • generating data models and visualizations
  • presenting findings at scientific meetings
  • writing and submitting manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals
  • contributing to grant proposals
  • mentoring students or visiting fellows

We are also looking to learn from you. Academic development is a central feature of this fellowship, and we actively support your professional growth through individual training/development plans, one-on-one mentoring, and professional skills workshops offered though NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s postdoctoral training program. You also have opportunities to develop your own complementary research program and have access to devices, tools, datasets, and professional development to give you the best environment to flourish.

Successful candidates possess the following skills and traits:

  • a doctorate degree in statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology, or equivalent in a related discipline (or your anticipated degree date, if it is before your start date)
  • excellent biostatistical and clinical epidemiology techniques and computational skills with data modeling, analysis, and visualization
  • experience with large datasets, especially from longitudinal epidemiologic cohorts
  • proficiency in statistical and programing software (Required: SAS. Preferred: Stata, R, Python, Linux, R Markdown)
  • familiarity with team/project management programs (e.g., GitHub, Trello, JIRA) as well as cloud storage and computing services (e.g., Dropbox, AWS)
  • action-oriented, proactive “doer” who enjoys tracking progress against goals
  • collaborative partner who thrives when working independently
  • reliably persistent and passionate about your work
  • experience with scientific writing, publishing, and oral communication
  • strong interpersonal skills
  • recent publications and experience in the field of epidemiology, biostatistics, social and behavioral sciences, Alzheimer’s disease, neurodegenerative diseases, neuroscience, or related fields

To apply, please submit your CV; a brief (two pages or less) cover letter explaining your research experience, interests, goals, and available start date; and the names, contact information, and roles of three references familiar with your research and academic work to Dr. Salinas at unicorn@nyulangone.org.

Biology of RAS and Related Small GTPases—July 16, 2020

Two postdoctoral positions are open in the laboratory of Mark R. Philips, MD, at NYU Langone Health’s Perlmutter Cancer Center in New York City. The Philips Lab focuses on the interplay between subcellular trafficking and signaling by small GTP binding and hydrolyzing proteins (GTPases), particularly RAS oncogene products.

We study how signal outputs depend on specific subcellular compartments and how investigators might interfere with protein trafficking to design novel therapeutics. We apply a wide range of tools from enzyme kinetics to live cell imaging in organisms that range from Drosophila to mice.

Recent work includes the discovery that KRAS4A directly regulates hexokinase 1 (Nature, 2019) and the development of screens for KRAS4B membrane association, which identified a nuclear factor that regulates prenyltransferase gene expression (in revision, PNAS).

Open projects include the following:

  • KRAS4A regulation of hexokinase on the outer mitochondrial membrane
  • the mechanism of control of KRAS alternative splicing and the expression of KRAS splice variants at the single cell level in tumors
  • KRAS4A palmitoylation regulation
  • protein kinase control of KRAS4B membrane association
  • nuclear scaffold protein regulation of farnesyltransferase expression
  • the role of carboxyl methylation on NRAS trafficking and signaling in melanoma

Our funding sources include a National Cancer Institute Distinguished Investigator Award.

We encourage PhDs with experience in molecular cell biology and/or basic cancer biology to apply, particularly those who have a familiarity with basic bioinformatic analysis. We seek candidates who are independent and creative thinkers and who value a highly collaborative environment. Qualified candidates have a track record of publication in peer-reviewed journals and are competitive for research fellowships.

To apply, send a cover letter, CV and list of at least three references to Dr. Philips at philim01@nyulangone.org.
