Postdoctoral Fellow - Stem Cell, Gene Editing, and Leukemia

 

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Satish Nandakumar (https://nandakumarlab.org/) at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Albert Einstein Cancer Center. Research in our laboratory is focused on understanding how germline genetic variants predispose to clonal hematopoiesis and hematologic malignancies. We use approaches at the interface of human genetics, hematopoietic stem cell biology and gene regulation to address this question.

We identify genetic risk variants from human genetic studies (e.g., GWAS) and examine them using CRISPR/Cas9 editing and high-throughput genomic screens in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. Our recent findings (Bao et al., Nature 2020; Bick et al., Nature 2020) has uncovered a previously unappreciated mechanism for inherited risk of myeloid malignancies involving modulation of hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) function and self-renewal. We seek an enthusiastic, committed, friendly, and capable individual to join our team.

We are particularly seeking an individual with experience in hematopoiesis or leukemia research.  In addition to a Ph.D., applicants should have a record of publication, and experience with molecular and cell biological techniques. The position will provide considerable opportunities for intellectual development through dedicated individual mentorship and guidance.  Support and freedom will be provided to ask important research questions and independently develop innovative research projects. Ability and interest to perform bioinformatics analysis is desired but not required.

Please send a cover letter describing research interests and accomplishments, CV, and the names and addresses of three references to satish.nandakumar@einsteinmed.edu.
