The Sanjana Lab at the New York Genome Center and NYU's Department of Biology and Center for Genomics and Systems Biology is looking for an energetic and motivated individual to work as a Postdoctoral Associate within a highly creative and dynamic research team of scientists, engineers, and life science entrepreneurs.
The Sanjana lab works at the intersection of genomics, bioengineering and neuroscience. We are curious about many things and are passionate about what we do. We primarily develop new technologies for hacking and understanding biological systems. We try to learn from nature and to re-purpose what we learn to gain deeper insights into how genomes and neural systems function. In the lab, we modify genomes, perform high-throughput screens, differentiate human neurons from stem cells, watch synapses rewire, find vulnerabilities in cancer cells and have a lot of fun in the process. We aim to have a tangible impact on improving human health by creating new biological tools and fundamental biological discovery.
