Post Doctoral Research Fellow, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences and Genetics
Post Doctoral Research Fellow,
Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences and Genetics
A position of postdoctoral research fellow is immediately available at the Departments of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences and Genetics in Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, USA. Our research projects aim to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of retinal differentiation and inherited retinal degenerations in an effort to regenerate the retina. Our experimental approaches include engineered mice, human pluripotent stem cells, retinal organoids, bulk and single-cell RNA sequencing. Additional information on our research projects can be found in our recent publications, including PNAS (2019) 116(22):10824-10833, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1901572116, Cell Reports (2018) 25: 2510-2523, DOI: 10.1016/j.celrep.2018.10.106, Stem Cell Reports (2016) 6:743-56, DOI: 10.1016/j.stemcr.2016.03.011, as well as in our websites (http://www.einstein.yu.edu/faculty/12331/wei-liu/). We were recently awarded an NEI prize for the first of two phases of the NEI 3-D Retina Organoid Challenge 2020 (3-D ROC 2020). The postdoc fellow will receive multidisciplinary training in an exciting academic environment in New York City.
The candidate for this position is expected to be a highly self-motivated, recent Ph.D. graduate with strong background in mouse genetics, vertebrate development, stem cell biology, or RNA sequencing. Research experience in eye development and inherited retinal degenerations is a plus. To apply for this position, please send your CV, contact information of three referees, and a statement of research interest to Dr. Wei Liu, Wei.Liu@einstein.yu.edu.
