Laboratory of Dr. Robert Coleman

A NIH-funded POSTDOCTORAL position is available in the laboratories of Robert Coleman and Wei-Li Liu, Assistant Professors of Anatomy and Structural Biology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York (Einstein) and members of the Gruss-Lipper Biophotonics Center (GLBPC). We are studying gene regulation involved in tumor suppression at unprecedented resolution. The research utilizes a combination of state-of-art cryo-electron microscopy and super-resolution live-cell single molecule fluorescence microscopy. This project builds upon our recent work (Science Translational Medicine, 2018, DOI: 10.1126/scitranslmed.aao3003, Molecular and Cellular Biology, 2017, DOI: 10.1128/MCB.00085-17, and Genes & Development, 2016, DOI:10.1101/gad.285692.116).

The Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology and the Gruss-Lipper Biophotonics Center has a strong core of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students working in diverse areas of gene regulation, RNA biology, single molecule imaging, biophysics, cell biology, and cancer biology. The Department and Center is highly interactive and dedicated to developing advanced techniques to address disease-driven biological questions and therapeutic targets at the nanoscale level. The Department meets bi-weekly for work-in-progress seminars and hosts numerous outside seminar speakers. The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is one of the nation's premier institutions for basic research and clinical investigation, with over 200 research laboratories funded by the National Institutes of Health. There are ~220 PhD students, and ~300 postdoctoral fellows at Einstein. Postdoctoral fellows are supported by the Einstein Postdoc Association ( and the Belfer Institute (

Einstein has several NIH Centers of Excellence and extensive core research facilities that support state-of-the-art research Subsidized postdoctoral housing is available. Einstein is in a low density, residential community with easy access to City Island, Orchard Beach and all the opportunities of New York City.

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information. Einstein seeks candidates whose skills, and personal and professional experience, have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence, and the communities we serve.

Recent PhD graduates in Physics or a Biophysics-related science are strongly preferred. Applicants should have programming experience due to the nature of the research project heavily involving image processing. First author publication(s) in peer-reviewed, English-language journals are necessary. Ability to work independently, along with creativity, high motivation and a strong work ethic, are important. Curriculum vitae with a description of research experience and contact information for three referees should be sent to
