Postdoctoral position in Biology of hematopoietic stem cells and malignancies - Dawlaty Laboratory
The Dawlaty Laboratory at the Genetics Department and the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Research of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is actively seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows with expertise in hematopoietic stem cell biology and cancer to study the epigenetics of normal and malignant hematopoiesis as part of our newly funded projects.
Central theme of research: Our research focuses on understanding the epigenetic mechanisms governing the biology of stem cells, development and cancer with an emphasis on the role of DNA modifying enzymes in normal and malignant hematopoiesis. We utilize mice as model system and combine bioinformatics, cellular and molecular approaches to study how DNA modifying enzymes reshape the epigenome and regulate cell fate and cancer. For more details on our research see previous work (Cimmino & Dawlaty et al Nature Immunology 2015, Zhao, Chen & Dawlaty et al Cell Reports 2015, Dawlaty et al Developmental Cell 2014,) or visit our website http://www.einstein.yu.edu/faculty/14514/meelad-dawlaty/ and http://dawlatylaboratory.weebly.com/
The Scientific Community: Among the top tier of the nation's medical schools to receive NIH funding, Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers a highly interactive and stimulating academic environment for scientists in training. Additionally, candidate's research will benefit from the highly interactive environment within the Gottesman Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, the Department of Genetics, Developmental and Molecular Biology, the Cancer Center and throughout the college. We are located in a pleasant residential area in the northeast corner of New York City with an easy commute to Manhattan and the suburbs of Westchester County. We offer competitive salary and benefit packages with optional postdoctoral housing on campus.
