The Smith Lab at NYU's Department of Biology is looking for a highly motivated and independent individual to work as a Research Scientist.
Projects in the Projects in the Smith lab are focused on DNA replication: specifically, we are interested in lagging-strand synthesis, the incorporation and removal of ribonucleotides from genomic DNA, and conflicts between replication and transcription. Planned projects use a combination of genetics, molecular biology and genomics to study ribonucleotide excision repair and replication-transcription conflicts in budding yeast and subsequently other organisms (Drosophila, human cell lines).
Responsibilities may include pursuing individual projects of high priority for the lab, day-to-day supervision and training of junior scientists, preparing manuscripts for publication, presenting the lab's work at local and international conferences, and helping to steer the overall intellectual direction of the lab.
Salary Range: approximately $80,000
Candidates must have a PhD and minimum five years' experience. A background in genome integrity, prior work with yeast and some bioinformatics experience would be ideal but are not strictly required.
Please upload your application materials via Interfolio. Include the following items: 1) CV; 2) A cover letter detailing your research interests, experience training junior scientists, and any other information relevant to the position; 3) a list of two references and their contact information.
