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.
Some of the research interests and approaches used by the lab include:
the creation of novel, single-cell genomics 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 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
Graduate research (PhD) in neuroscience, molecular biology, and/or genomics is required. This should include a record of significant scientific achievements during graduate studies, evidenced by pending or published high-impact publications.
Additional expertise in computational biology or bioinformatics is recommended, but we will consider individuals with scientific experience in other complementary fields.
