The Truong Lab for Cell Programming and Genome Engineering(truonglab.com) at NYU Tandon School of Engineering is seeking to hire a Post Doctoral Researcher to join an exciting 5-year NIH-funded project to build programmable iPSC-derived Dendritic Cells for applications in cancer cell immunotherapy. The Truong lab is a synthetic biology group located in Manhattan by the NYU School of Medicine focused on 'writing' the DNA in human iPSCs to engineer new cell therapies and regenerative medicines.
Candidates will be responsible for working with human iPSCs, mouse ESCs, developing new approaches to engineer genomes, and direct cellular differentiation. They will also be expected to work closely with the NYU School of Medicine using human peripheral blood monocytes (PBMCs). The successful candidate will be driven, creative, and team-oriented with a passion for engineering biology. This is also an opportunity to shape the direction of a new lab, mentor younger members, and get very close guidance from a new investigator.
New York University (NYU) is one of the top private universities in the United States, and the Tandon School of Engineering, headquartered in Brooklyn, has the distinct history of having been known previously as Brooklyn Poly and the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering.
