Junior or Senior Research Technician, Piano Lab, New York University

A full time Research Technician Position is available, in the Piano Lab, New York University’s Center for Genomics and Systems Biology. We study the molecular networks underlying development in C. elegans.

Our lab is located in the beautiful and vibrant Greenwich Village in downtown Manhattan. The lab, above Washington Square Park, is in contiguous open space with that of other great groups, including Matt Rockman who is also looking for a technician, please see his post on this forum for more opportunities to work here at NYU.

For the position in my lab, a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree is required and previous lab experience is preferred. Previous research experience with C. elegans is a plus, but not a requirement. Applicants should be highly motivated individuals, able to work independently as well as in a group. Both junior and more senior applicants are encouraged to apply.

The successful applicant will mainly work alongside a post-doc on a large-scale project to map genetic interactions in C. elegans embryos. The project requires good organization, and an appreciation for genetic analysis and embryogenesis.

The position will give the successful applicant opportunities to interact with a diverse group of people in an open-lab environment studying the molecular networks underlying development using both experimental and computational approaches.

It is expected that the successful applicant will contribute significantly to the project and thus merit authorship on resulting publications.

Interested applicants should submit a CV with one or more references contacts included to Fabio Piano fabio.piano at nyu.edu by May 1, when selection will begin. Start date will be as soon as possible.

New York University is an equal opportunity employer offering generous benefit packages.
