New York University Postdoctoral Recruitment–(Chromatin Structure and Function/Epigenetics)

New York University (New York University) Li Fei’s research group recruits postdoctoral fellows. The research direction of the research group is epigenetics and chromatin structure and function. The research group has published many papers in journals such as Nature, Molecular Cell, PNAS, Cell Reports, etc. in recent years. The laboratory subjects are novel, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the funds are sufficient to support the future development of postdoctoral fellows. Welcome to join with relevant professional background in genetics, biochemistry, cell, molecular biology and so on. Minimum wage: $59,000/year. New York University is the world’s top private research university located in the center of Manhattan, New York City. It was established in 1831. Applicants please send your resume and referral information to: [email protected]

The Fei Li’s lab at Department of Biology at New York University (NYU) is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral scientists with an interest in chromatin biology and epigenetics and a proven academic track record.

Projects in the Li lab focus on studying molecular mechanisms of epigenetics and chromatin organization using fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe as a model organism (Li, et al. Nature, 2011; Gonzalez et al. PNAS, 2013; Dong et al. Molecular Cell 2016; He et al. Cell Reports 2016; He et al. PNAS, 2017; Dong et al. PNAS, 2021). Planned projects use a combination of approaches, including genetics, live cell imaging, molecular biology, biochemistry, and genomics. Our laboratory has several exciting projects, including (1) how epigenetic information is inherited through the cell cycle; (2) the mechanisms underlying the epigenetic regulation of centromeres; (3) how the non-coding RNAs regulate heterochromatin assembly; and (4) the role of liquid-liquid phase separation in chromatin organization.Postdoctoral scientists will have opportunities to receive rigorous training in latest approaches in chromatin, epigenetics and condensate research. The fellow will also benefit from state-of-the-art research facilities and the highly collaborative community at NYU. Further information about our research can be found at:

This position is for a post-PhD trainee preparing for a research scientist career path. The planned position will provide a transition to career independence through the development of professional skills; supervision by senior scientist incorporating individual development plan in support of training goals and those of faculty mentor; and publication of research findings/scholarship during postdoc appointment period. New York University (NYU) is a private, global research university founded in 1831 . The position offers competitive salary, excellent benefits, and exposure to a rich environment at NYU and the New York City area.

Position Requirements
The ideal candidate will hold a PhD, have prior research experience in Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry or Cell Biology, and a track record of peer-reviewed publications. Experiences with epigenetics and chromatin, yeast genetics, RNA biology, and fluorescence microscopy are desirable but not required.

How to Apply
Interested candidates please email CV, brief description of research experience and interest, names and contact information of 3 references to: [email protected] .
