- The Fang lab pioneered the fast growing field of bacterial epigenomics (Nature Biotechnology, 2012; Nature Reviews Genetics, 2018, Nature Microbiology, 2020).
- We also pioneered the use of DNA methylation for high resolution microbiome analysis (Nature Biotechnology, 2018; Nature Methods, 2021).
- We also study the human genome, epigenome and transcriptome (Genome Research, 2018; Nature Genetics, 2019) with a systems biology approach to understand microbes and microbiomes.
- We have >10 years of experience in long read sequencing (both PacBio and Oxford Nanopore) and systems biology of human diseases.
Multiple openings on Technology Development, Systems Biology and Precision Medicine for Infectious Diseases, Brain Disorders and Immune Disorders.
- Bacterial genetics and epigenetics: wet lab.
- Multi-omics + Experimental study of bacterial pathogens: “humid” or dry.
- Multi-omics + Experimental study of microbiome and host: “humid” or dry.
Successful candidates will have unique opportunities with
- A highly interdisciplinary and innovative lab culture where members with dry/wet background closely discuss and learn from each other;
- Our unique expertise in long read sequencing, rich clinical samples and strong collaborators;
- Take the lead role in projects developing cutting edge, pioneering technologies with high biomedical and clinical impact;
- Strong mentorship in both research and career development;
- Compensations are highly competitivewith subsidized housing in New York City.
- Candidates with experimental OR computational background are both welcome.
- Candidates with molecular biology skills are expected to have solid experience in bacterial genetics OR microbiome research.
- Candidates with computational background are expected to have solid training in bioinformatics, genomics, epigenomics transcriptomics OR metagenomics,
- Ability to learn and master new knowledge and technologies,
- Lead an independent research direction while adapting to a collaborative environment,
- An innovative yet critical thinker.
