The New York Genome Center (NYGC) firmly believes that people are the heart of our organization. We value the vital role that our employees play in the success of the NYGC’s mission, and our benefits are here to show it. Learn more about Why Work with Us.
Each faculty member of the NYGC leads a laboratory of post doctoral researchers, lab associates and scientific staff. They integrate their genomic expertise with the work that we are doing NYGC, working in collaborative research relationships both inside NYGC and with academic institutions. Our Faculty members hold joint appointments at our Institutional Founding Members while also managing their independent laboratories housed at the NYGC and conducting ground-breaking and collaborative genomic research.
We believe that every team member is crucial as NYGC works towards our mission, be it in a scientific, technical, or administrative position. Our administration team plays a huge role in driving transformative change in biomedical and clinical care. This group includes external affairs, finance, legal, business development, project management, sponsored research and facilities.
We are proud to boast a world-class bioinformatics and computational biology organization to support the cutting edge genomics research and integrated genomics services that we offer at NYGC. Our collaborative bioinformatics team is passionate about understanding and modeling human genetic variation and researching how it can be used to generate clinically actionable results.
We have a state-of-the-art clinical diagnostic laboratory that utilizes next-generation sequencing technology to perform cutting-edge tests in the areas of genetics and oncology. The Clinical Laboratory is accredited by CLIA and CLEP and is licensed to perform clinical testing in all fifty (50) of the United States and the District of Columbia. This group is made up of experienced technical staff who deliver NYGC’s diagnostics services.
We are pleased to support professional learning experiences that offer meaningful, practical work related to a student's field of study or career interest. An internship gives the opportunity for career exploration and development, and to learn new skills.
NYGC is committed to providing the most advanced sequencing an analysis possible. Our facility was designed to accommodate ever-improving technology, and we have more sequencing capacity than any other single institution in the Tri-State area. The Sequencing Operations group is responsible for understanding and interpreting sequencing and primary bioinformatics data, and is central to the transformative work of NYGC.
Our Software Engineers develop cutting edge tools to drive the services at NYGC. This team works closely with bioinformatics, sequencing lab, scientists, program management, and more to develop scientific applications for high-volume data processing, analysis and management.
The Technology Innovation Lab develops novel genomics methods and technologies, both extending and complementing existing approaches. Working with this diverse group provides the opportunity to collaborate with leading genomics labs in the NY area and beyond to perform innovative research that will shape the future of our industry.
