The Genetic Heritage Group at NYU Abu Dhabi is seeking a motivated recent PhD graduate with excellent hands-on research in genomics or bioinformatics demonstrated by publications to work on multi omics studies on a large cohort of human and non-human samples consisting of diverse high-throughput datasets (WGS, WMS, metabolomics, and sc-RNA seq) to study the molecular mechanisms by which the microbiome influences host health. The research will be conducted in a highly collaborative environment with an international team of researchers. Candidates with PhD in Biology, Genetics/Genomics, Microbiology, or related field preferred.
This position requires demonstrated background in experimental genomics or bioinformatics data analysis via published papers or code repositories (e.g. github). Candidates must be comfortable handling large sample sets to generate multiple types of omics datasets and/or have the ability to analyze diverse datasets (surveys, metagenomics, metabolomics, single-cell sequencing, ATAC-seq, etc.), be familiar with standard laboratory/statistical methods, genomics and metagenomics pipelines, laboratory/data management, and experimental/bioinformatics workflow development. They should be able to use existing standard operating protocols (SOPs) and should be open to developing new approaches for multi-omics data generation and analyses by working closely with CGSB Bioinformatics Core at NYUAD. This position will initially be for two years and may be renewable.
The successful applicants will drive multiple large-scale projects in humans and non-humans by integrating multi-omics datasets. They should be able to independently drive these projects forward by collaborating with an international team of researchers. Primary responsibilities will include generating multi omics data, integrating whole genome sequences, metagenomics, metabolomics, and single cell sequencing data to understand the molecular mechanisms by which microbes can affect host. Candidates must have strong written and oral presentation skills. The candidate will work in a multidisciplinary environment consisting of PhD-level scientists, graduate students and undergraduate students from NYUAD as well as international institutions (Stanford University, UC Santa Cruz, and NYU New York). This position will initially be for two years and may be renewable.
The terms of employment are very competitive and include housing and educational subsidies for children. Applications will be accepted immediately and candidates will be considered until the position is filled. To be considered, all applicants must submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, transcript of degree, a one-page summary of research accomplishments and interests, and at least 2 letters of recommendation, all in PDF format. For any questions, please reach out to Dr. Jha: email@example.com.
