Department Name: ANATOMY AND STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY
The Hodgson lab is developing monomeric, single-chain Frster resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based biosensors for Rho family small GTPases and their downstream targets. We most recently pioneered a multiple FRET biosensor technology in which we visualized two orthogonal FRET biosensors in the same cell at the same time. We develop these biosensors and apply them in real, hypothesis-driven biology research in our laboratory, including cancer invasion & metastasis, macrophage chemotaxis and other general directional cell motility.
The research in the Guo lab focuses on stem cell plasticity and epigenetic regulation of mammary stem cells and cancer stem cells, as well as the impact of stem cell pathways on turmor immune microenvironment. We use a wide range of genomics/epigenomics methods, CRISPR genome editing, organoid culture, and in vivo mouse models.
A postdoctoral position in the area of chromatin structure, transcription, signaling, developmental biology, genomics and bioinformatics. The research projects are focused on mammalian eye development to examine molecular mechanisms underlying embryogenesis, transcriptional control, chromatin dynamics and 3D-nuclear organization, activities of specific gene regulatory networks, and visualization of mRNA cycle and mRNA:RNA-binding protein interactions.
The Zhou lab research focuses on molecular mechanisms of cardiovascular development. Areas of interest include genetic and epigenetic basis of cardiac cell specification and differentiation during development, heart disease, and regeneration (Cell, 23178125; Nature, 29743679, 25119045, 20596014; Eur Heart J, 26491108; Circ Res, 21597012; Nat Commun, 28924218, 29215012; PNAS, 25848038; Dev Cell, 29056552, 25625206; Annual Review Physiology, 27959615).
The Ross lab studies neural circuit mechanisms governing the interaction of stress with fundamental motivated behavior, specifically focusing on the mechanisms of neuromodulators and hormones involved in dynamic homeostatic processes. We are interested in how these processes may underlie diseases of metabolism and mental health such as obesity or anorexia nervosa. Prior experience in at least one of these technical areas of expertise is preferred: calcium imaging/in vivo photometry, mouse behavioral tasks, molecular biology, high dimensional analyses of neuronal data (or biological data in general), electrophysiology, 2-photon microscopy, computer programming and electronics.
Our research is focused on molecular mechanisms of cardiomyopathy and heart failure. Specific areas of interest include genetic, epigenetic, and long noncoding RNA mechanisms of gene regulation (myocytes, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts) and cardiomyopathy. Our relevant publications include Nature (PMID: 25119045; 20596014; 25119037; 20130577), Cell (15339668); Circulation Research (18723445; 21293009), PNAS (23319608; 27601681), Nature Comm. (28924218; 29215012), Developmental Cell (23602386; 20816797), Annual Review Physiology (22035349), and Nature Review Cardiology (25855606).
The area of research is in deciphering physiological functions of novel bacterial species isolated in the lab using basic microbial genetic techniques. The postdoctoral fellow should have advanced knowledge of microbial genetic techniques like CRISPR-Cas9, transposon, phage mediated mutants in bacteria. Additionally, should have training or skill in large scale data management and analysis of the microbiome by 16S/metagenomics/metatranscriptomics (e.g., PICRUSt).
The Sidoli lab is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work on state-of-the-art mass spectrometry, innovative cell culture models and unusual sample collecting methods (e.g., breath biopsies) to investigate chromatin state in health and disease.

The Batista-Brito lab investigates how postnatal development of inhibitory function shapes the way information is processed in the brain in the context of health and disease. Cortical function depends on the adaptive function of brain areas comprised of many types of cells and synaptic connections that develop on a long timescale. During development, neural networks must grow from a state of zero connectivity to the precisely interconnected circuits characteristic of the adult brain. The activity of GABAergic inhibitory neurons during postnatal development is likely to mediate synaptic refinement, reducing synchrony and enhancing precision in the mature network. Accordingly, dysregulation of GABAergic interneurons has been linked to several neurodevelopmental disorders. We use a powerful combination of methods, including single-cell genetic profiling, mouse genetics, cell-type specific manipulation of neuronal activity, in vivo electrophysiology, in vivo 2-photon imaging, and behavioral analysis, in order to functionally dissect the developmental impact of specific sources of inhibition on cortical processing and perception. This research illuminates how cortical functions are altered in neurodevelopmental disorders, with particular focus opn schizophrenia and autism.
The Verkhusha lab is interested in the development and application of molecular probes, such as biosensors and optogenetic tools, for monitoring and controlling biological processes in cells and animals.
Two postdoctoral positions are available
A: A molecular biologist interested in engineering fluorescent protein-based biosensors and characterizing them both in vitro and in cultured cells.
B: A neuroscientist interested in imaging with advanced biosensors for the optogenetic control of activity and molecular processes in neurons, as well as cellular electrophysiology, electric field stimulation, optogenetics and calcium imaging.
Postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the Gavathiotis Laboratory at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York City. Our laboratory investigates cell death and cell survival pathways such as apoptosis, selective autophagy, mitochondrial dynamics and oncogenic signalingwith the goal to characterize novel biological mechanisms that contribute to cancer and other diseases. We harness mechanistic and structural insights to discover first-in-class chemical probes and develop novel therapeutics that enable applications with translational impact.

The Eskandar lab studies cortical-subcortical circuits and their role in learning, decision-making, and addiction. We perform micro-electrode recordings and micro-stimulation in experimental animals performing a variety of cognitive tasks and in humans performing parallel tasks, while implanted with electrodes for the treatment of Parkinson disease or epilepsy. This translational approach supports our over-arching goal of developing novel neuro-modulatory therapies for patients suffering from cognitive impairment, substance or behavioral addictions, and other neuropsychiatric disorders.
The Child Outpatient Psychiatry Division, Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY is accepting applications for a one-year, full-time Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship in the Connecting and Reflecting Experience (CARE) program for 2021-2022. The CARE clinical and research program is a developmentally informed, bi-generational, transdiagnostic specialty program that offers mentalizing-focused group treatment to parents of children from birth 18 years of age. This unique fellowship will follow a scientist-practitioner model, providing intensive training in the implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of mentalizing-focused group parenting interventions that aim to dismantle the intergenerational transmission of maltreatment trauma in marginalized and underprivileged communities.
