Job Announcement: We are looking for an experienced and detail-oriented research scientist with established expertise in regenerative medicine/stem cell biology (several years of lab experience and publication track record), excellent organization and management skills, and interest in bone research, to join our team.
The lab focuses on improving skeletal regeneration through the understanding of the molecular and cellular events that orchestrate bone healing, with special focus on aging.
Job Description: Senior Research Scientist / Research Associate will be involved in managing the wet-bench component of the laboratory, maintaining an independent project while also training other members, overall contributing to the design, performance, and interpretation of experiments related to several NIH-funded and future projects in the laboratory, aimed at elucidating the biology of fracture healing, both in basic animal models and in translational applications.
Common techniques in the Leucht lab include animal models of fracture healing, cell isolation from bones and fracture callus, flow cytometry of skeletal stem cell populations from fresh tissues, gene editing for in vitro studies, scRNAseq, RNAseq and chromatin accessibility (ATACseq) and chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIPseq) assays, in vitro proliferation and differentiation assays, in vivo fracture healing analysis using microCT and microscopy. The ideal candidate should have experience in most of the above techniques.
Institutional Environment: Our laboratory is in an academic setting in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine (New York), an internationally recognized research institution with a dynamic research environment and extensive infrastructural and core facility support. Dr. Leucht also serves as the Director of Orthopaedic Research and as the Co-Director of the NYU Regenerative Medicine Program.
Interested candidates should send their CV and contact information for at least three references by email to Philipp.firstname.lastname@example.org by regular mail to Philipp Leucht, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, Skirball 2-057, 550 First Avenue, New York, NY 10016.
Job Qualifications:Candidates should hold a PhD with preference given to applicants with a strong interest in and research training relevant to the areas of stem cell biology, regenerative medicine, and transcriptional or epigenetic regulation. Desire and commitment to spearhead translational research projects, a solid record of peer-reviewed publications, excellent writing and oral presentation skills will be expected.
Applicants with strong work ethic, organizational skills, ability to multitask, and those looking for long-term commitment, will be given preference.

We are proud to have trained as well as fostered the innovations of thousands of physicians and scientists who have helped shape the course of medical history. Our students, faculty, and staff have contributed to groundbreaking discoveries that have improved the health of people around the world. As an integral part of NYU Langone Health, we are committed to a trifold mission of patient care, medical education, and scientific research.
Our 29 academic departments include nationally and internationally recognized faculty in clinical and basic sciences. We strive to bring together the best and brightest to cultivate collaboration across disciplines, and to facilitate breakthroughs that address today’s biggest challenges in medicine.
We have a long history of excellence, beginning in 1841 when six eminent physician–scientists opened the medical college that would become NYU School of Medicine. In November 2019, the school was renamed NYU Grossman School of Medicine.
For more than 175 years, our pioneers in medicine defined the fundamentals of what is now our mission: to serve, to teach, and to discover.
