Postdoctoral positions are available in Alberto Ciccia’s laboratory in the Department of Genetics and
Development at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. The Ciccia laboratory investigates 1) the
molecular mechanisms that maintain genomic stability to suppress cancer development and regulate
chemotherapy and immunotherapy responses (Taglialatela A et al, Molecular Cell, 2021; Huang JW et al,
Nature Communications, 2020; Taglialatela A et al, Molecular Cell, 2017; Joseph SA et al, DNA Repair,
2020); 2) the function of nucleotide variants in DNA repair genes using innovative base editing screens
(Cuella-Martin R et al, Cell, 2021; Hayward SB and Ciccia A, Current Opinions in Genetics and
Development, 2021); 3) the interplay between DNA repair and genome editing (Nambiar TS et al, Nature
Communications, 2019); and develops 4) novel methods for precision genome editing (Billon P et al, Cell
Reports, 2020; Billon P et al, Molecular Cell, 2017). More information can be found at www.ciccialab.com/.
Interested candidates with Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degrees are encouraged to apply by November 15,
2021. Experience in molecular and cell biology, genetics or computational biology, and first-author
publications in peer-reviewed journals are preferred.
