The successful candidate will conduct and run 16S or metagenomics sequencing of clinical samples. At NYU Dentistry, the microbiome team has extensive experience analyzing large metagenomic datasets with many variables along with clinical data. This is an exciting workplace where there is fast-paced science happening with amazing resources. We are seeking creative and highly motivated individuals who want to work in a dynamic, multi-disciplinary research environment and gain experiences in both pre-clinical and clinical settings.
