Postdoc: Gene Engineering, Next Generation Gene Therapy [T. Jiang Lab]

Postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the Jiang Lab at the Icahn Genomics Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.

The goal of our lab is to evolve CRISPR-based genome editing tools into next-generation gene therapies and to treat those untreatable human genetic diseases. To achieve this, we will engineer advanced CRISPR tools to correct or model the defective genomic DNA, and further deliver these newly-engineered editors into targeted organs to correct the corresponding phenotypes. The current disease models include cystic fibrosis, mitochondrial diseases, and liver cancer. More information about the Jiang lab can be found on the lab website. The position offers a competitive salary, subsidized housing, and exposure to a highly translational and vibrant research environment at Mount Sinai and the New York City area. 

Qualifications

  • PhD or/and MD degree
  • Proficient experience with molecular biology, cell culture-related experiments¬†
  • Proofs of the ability to independently lead a project
  • Good written and oral communication skills
  • Experiences with in vivo animal works (mouse or rat) or computational analysis of large data sets are preferred.
