The Landau Lab at the New York Genome Center is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position. The Landau lab develops computational and experimental tools to study the fundamental question of somatic evolution in health and disease. Our research is geared towards uncovering basic principles in evolutionary biology, using both patient derived samples and experimental systems for modeling cancer evolution in vitro and in vivo.
The team includes a formidable group of scientists with interest and expertise which includes technology development, mathematical modeling, computer science and deep learning approaches, single-cell technology, genome and epigenome editing, liquid biopsy, high throughput approaches for optical barcodes and immunotherapy strategies.
In addition to the basic science interest, we also seek to apply this knowledge to designing the next generation of precision medicine tools to overcome cancer evolution, as a central challenge to cancer cure today.
Postdoctoral researchers will have the opportunity to develop an independent research program, work with leading collaborators across NYC and the Harvard/MIT community, and receive training in cutting-edge techniques for both the dry and wet lab.
