Work With Us

The Idaghdour Lab at NYU Abu Dhabi is committed to training multidisciplinary researchers who are interested in using genomic approaches and high-throughput datasets to address biological questions of interest. Research in the lab ranges from field-based research to wet lab experiments and computational data analysis. Members of the lab are exposed to multiple facets of research and are encouraged to explore their own research ideas granted that they fall under the general interests of the lab.

Potential Graduate Students can apply to New York University’s Biology PhD program via the Graduate School of Arts and Science online application system. Please see GSAS’s Application Resource Center for more information on the application process, including requirements, deadlines, and other useful tips.
