Postdoctoral Associate position to study hematopoietic neoplasms using advanced single-cell multi-omics technologies

The Nam Lab ( of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and of the Englander Institute for Precision Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine, is seeking post-doctoral scientists to study the development and progression of hematopoietic neoplasms using cutting edge molecular and computational approaches. We focus on developing novel single-cell multi-omics techniques and computational algorithms to directly interrogate primary human tissues. We implement a complementary approach of discovering cancer-specific signatures directly in patient samples through the powerful single-cell sequencing platforms and mechanistically defining these targets through model systems for translational impact.

We are recruiting both (1) wet lab-focused molecular biologists to lead single-cell genomics technology development and experiments and (2) computational biologists to develop new algorithms for discovery in high-dimensional datasets generated by novel experimental procedures. The positions are fully funded, and offer competitive benefits and access to subsidized Cornell housing in Manhattan and Roosevelt Island.

Please include the following items with your application: (1) CV with a list of publications; (2) a short summary of your present and future research interests; (3) a list of three references and their contact information to Dr. Anna Nam at
