Job Description

Postdoctoral Associate-1801754

Required Qualifications (As evidenced by an attached resume):

Ph.D (or foreign equivalent) in Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, or Biological sciences in hand by December 31, 2018.

Preferred Qualifications:

Microfluidics, flow simulation, cell culture and/or statistical interpretation, analysis of next-generation sequencing, Single-cell analysis, single-cell genomics and/or genomics or epigenomics. Sample preparation, molecular biology, quantitative biology

Brief Description of Duties:
The post-doctoral associate will support the efforts of the collaboration between the laboratories of Dr. Brouzes at Stony Brook University and the laboratory of Dr. Watanabe at Mount Sinai. The goal of the project is to streamline the sample preparation workflow for single-cell epigenomics using microfluidics. The approach will build on the expertise on both groups in single-cell manipulation (Sauzade et al., LOC, 2017), magnetic extraction (Brouzes et al., LOC 2015), and single-cell epigenomics (Zhang et al. , Nat Genetics 2016).

Eric Brouzes, Ph.D.

The group of Microfluidics for Quantitative and Genomic Biology at Stony Brook University focuses on single-cell genomics using droplet microfluidics and arrays of microwells. The group at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is in the Department of Medicine, as well as a part of Tisch Cancer Institute, and studies cancer epigenomics using the state-of-the-art molecular biology techniques to elucidate the lineage programs of lung cancers.

This position is a unique opportunity to fast forward a career with an exciting project and high caliber collaborators and environment. The post-doctoral fellow will perform research in both laboratories.

The post-doctoral associate will carry out microfluidic experiments, microfabrication of microfluidic device, data collection and interpretation of sequencing data. She/he will receive appropriate training in the areas complementary to her/his expertise. She/he will also train students in different experimental aspects. This position requires a high level of discretion, judgment, collaboration and initiative to accomplish goals. May include supervisory responsibilities.

  • Within the predetermined research scope and methodology, conduct research experiments in single-cell epigenomics: collect and analyze data, including periodical/literature search and utilizing specialized skills in related field to analyze the collected data.
  • Participate/assist in manuscript writing for publication in scientific journals and/or presentations and/or intellectual property. May also assist in grant writing.
  • Lab maintenance, including equipment maintenance and ordering of supplies as needed.
  • Other duties or projects as assigned as appropriate to rank and departmental mission, which may include attending Scientific Conferences and Meetings.
