Genome Editing to Model and Treat Monogenic Diseases

Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the laboratory of Chengzu Long, PhD, at NYU Langone’s Leon H. Charney Division of Cardiology and Helen L. and Martin S.KimmelCenter for Stem Cell Biology. Our projects focus on advancing the novel genome-editing technology to model and treat cardiac and neuromuscular diseases. For more information, see JAMA Neurology 2016.

Monogenic disorders affect millions of people worldwide. The recent advance in novel precision genome-editing technologies and human pluripotent stem cell biology are revolutionizing our approach to study the pathology of diseases and eventually to develop the potential therapeutics for these diseases. Using Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) system-mediated genome editing, we successfully prevented muscular dystrophy in the mouse model. For more information, see Science 2014 and Science 2016.

We are optimizing genome-editing strategies on the culprit genes in patients’ cardiomyocytes, three-dimensional engineered heart muscle (for more information, see Science Advances 2018)

The ideal candidate holds a PhD and/or MD in biological sciences or biomedical-related fields. Candidates with expertise in stem cell biology and neuroscience are particularly encouraged to apply.

To apply or to obtain more information about this position, please contact Dr. Long atchengzu.long@nyumc.org. Applicants should include a CV, brief statement of research background, and names of three references.

NYU School of Medicine ranked no. 3 in the nation out of 144 medical schools nationwide on the 2018–2019 “Best Graduate Schools” list issued by U.S. News & World Report. NYU School of Medicine is an equal opportunity employer committed to fostering diversity for postdoctoral fellows in the workplace. Our positions offer competitive salaries, excellent benefits, and eligibility for student housing.
