We have an exciting opportunity to join our team as a Senior Research Scientist – Human Genomics and Neurotechnology.
This position will be responsible for collaborating with the Principal Investigator (PI) and working independently within the scientific framework of the PI’s laboratory.
The Evrony Lab (PI: Gilad Evrony) at New York University is dedicated to understanding the mechanisms by which the genome builds the brain and to identifying the molecular-genetic defects underlying neuropsychiatric diseases whose causes are not known. The lab is focused on creating foundational new technologies for genomics and neuroscience in order to answer these questions.
Some of the research interests and approaches used by the lab include:
- the creation of novel, single-cell sequencing technologies for high-resolution lineage tracing directly in human tissues with the goal of establishing a complete catalogue of progenitor and mature cell types in the brain
- the development of genomics technologies to identify the cellular origins of individual brain tumors
- comparative medicine and genomics
- pediatric precision medicine—using advanced genomics to find the causes of unsolved diseases in children with atypical and rare conditions

About the PI: Dr. Evrony received his undergraduate degree from MIT. He completed an M.D. and Ph.D. at Harvard Medical School and has been recognized with the Science Magazine-Eppendorf award and the MIT Technology Review World’s Top Innovators Under 35 Award (TR35). Dr. Evrony also trained in pediatrics at Mount Sinai Hospital.
