The Gunsalus and Piano Labs in NYU's Center for Genomics & Systems Biology are searching for a motivated individual to provide support for ongoing research projects. We study the genetic and evolutionary mechanisms underlying early embryonic development. We use both the laboratory animal model organism C. elegans and relatives from the Diploscapter clade, which have an unusual mode of parthonegetic reproduction and show different cell division patterns that govern the adult body plan.Our work uses both genome-scale functional genomic and computational approaches, as well as small-scale molecular genetic and biochemical approaches. The CGSB offers a dynamic and vibrant research environment in the heart of Greenwich Village in New York. More information about the labs can be found at our webpage, http://gunsaluspiano.bio.nyu.edu/.
We are looking for energetic, budding researchers with scientific curiosity, effective communication and interpersonal skills, attention to detail, and organizational abilities who can manage a variety of tasks. Responsibilities will include maintenance of laboratory stocks; experimental investigation using molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, and microscopy; and participation in regular lab meetings and journal clubs. Opportunities for independent projects will be available with demonstrated ability for independent work and critical thinking.
Salary Range: $45,000-53,000
Candidates must minimally hold a Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences and have prior experience with molecular biology; a Master's degree, one or more years of professional experience in a laboratory environment, and familiarity with C. elegans are preferred.
Interested candidates are encouraged to submit a cover letter, CV, and two letters of recommendation via Interfolio:
