A full-time Laboratory Associate position is available immediately in the lab of Dr. Gloria Coruzzi at NYU's Center for Genomics & Systems Biology. The Coruzzi Lab is looking for a highly motivated and independent individual to provide assistance in an ongoing high-throughput genomics project that utilizes transcription factor perturbation to study the gene regulatory networks underlying nitrogen regulation in plants.
The Coruzzi Lab's nitrogen regulatory network studies exploit time-series genomic datasets and machine learning approaches to infer regulatory networks. This high-throughput genomics project is part of a systems biology approach for validating predicted gene regulatory networks affecting Nitrogen-Use Efficiency (NUE) in plants, a trait with impact on the environment, energy, and human nutrition.
A B.S. or M.S. in biology or related area and at least 2+ years of previous experience in a research lab in the areas of molecular biology are desired. The successful candidate is expected to assist a team of scientists with their experiments. Flexibility regarding work hours is necessary depending on experimental requirements. Good interpersonal skills, a focused and well-organized working style, and the ability to work both independently as well as in a team is essential.
