Postdoc Position in Single-Molecule Biophysics

The Laboratory of Prof. Arne Gennerich at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine invites applications for a Postdoc position. Positioned in New York City, the lab welcomes applicants with strong backgrounds in biophysics, protein biochemistry, or molecular biology. Those who have a keen interest in delving deep into the molecular functions and dysfunctions of microtubule-associated motor proteins are particularly encouraged to apply.



About the Gennerich Laboratory:

The Gennerich lab has a deep-rooted interest in understanding the intricate molecular mechanisms of cytoskeletal motor proteins. Leveraging a multidisciplinary approach, our lab integrates single-molecule biophysics (such as high-resolution optical trapping and multicolor single-molecule fluorescence microscopy), biochemistry, and molecular biology. Our primary research focus revolves around the microtubule-associated motor proteins cytoplasmic dynein and KIF1A. By gaining mechanistic insights into these proteins, we aim to decipher the molecular causes of neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental diseases. By combining single-molecule assays with mutagenesis and cryoEM, the Gennerich lab will develop novel therapies to target neurological diseases that are caused by mutations in microtubule-associated motor proteins.



Financial Support:

The Einstein base minimum salary for postdoctoral positions is $65,000. For a complete list of the postdoctoral salary ranges, please visit our website: Successful applicants will receive a generous salary based on NIH guidelines, along with benefits that include College-owned postdoctoral housing. This housing is situated in a pleasant residential neighborhood near the medical school. Additionally, the Belfer Institute for Advanced Biomedical Studies at Einstein offers postdoctoral researchers an enriching scientific and social environment, complemented by convenient housing options.



Candidate Profile:

  • Prior experience in protein biochemistry, molecular biology, or single-molecule biophysics.
  • Demonstrated academic and research accomplishments.



Application Process:

Interested candidates are requested to submit:

  • A comprehensive curriculum vitae.
  • Names and contact details of three references.
