The Coruzzi Lab is currently accepting applications for Postdoctoral Associate positions at NYU's Center for Genomics and Systems Biology.
Overview: A major goal of systems biology is to model gene regulatory networks to accurately predict causal interactions between transcription factors (TF) and target genes. Our lab focus is on predictively modeling and validating gene regulatory networks involved in nitrogen (N) use in plants including the model Arabidopsis and crops, including maize and rice. We use time-series transcriptome N-response data to learn causal networks using machine learning approaches. For high through put validation, we are using a plant cell-based assay called TARGET scaled up to cover TFs spanning all TF families in Arabidopsis, maize and rice. We aim identify the master transcription factors in such networks that control NUE in plants, with a focus on ones conserved across genotypes within species and also across species.
The Center for Genomics and Systems Biology located in the historic and vibrant Greenwich Village in downtown Manhattan in New York City. NYU is one of the world's leading research universities and its Center for Genomics and Systems Biology is housed in a new, state-of-the-art facility with 27 faculty members who study Genomics and Systems Biology across all kingdoms of life.

The successful applicant will hold a PhD and have skills and have experience in Genomics and Bioinformatics. The position will require both experimental and computational skills for the generation and analysis of NextGen datasets – including RNA-Seq, Chip-Seq and Atac-seq and others. Computational proficiency in R, Perl, Python, or other programming language are strongly preferred. This position also includes aiding in the writing of grant applications and reports, paper writing and communicating our work in conferences and meetings.
Please upload your application materials via Interfolio. Include the following items: 1) CV including a list of publications; 2) a cover letter; 3) a list of three references and their contact information.
