Khayat Group


Welcome to the Khayat laboratory located in The City College of New York (Manhattan). We use a combination of cryo-electron microscopy, X-ray crystallography, molecular dynamics, biophysics, and biochemistry to study molecular machines involved in pathogenesis and cellular viability.


High school: We have accepted high school students into the group.

Undergraduates: Interested undergraduates enrolled in Biochemistry 1 and passionate about research are encouraged to contact us for joining the group. We prefer to highly train a small number of undergraduates. Alternatively, undergraduates with strong analytical and quantitative skills are also strongly encouraged to apply.

Technician: Recent graduates with BS/BA degrees interested in attending graduate schools are encouraged to apply. We request a 2-year commitment. Position for one technician to join the group is available. Interviews are being conducted.

Graduate students: Positions for two graduate students to join the lab are available.

Postdoc: We are actively looking to recruit undergraduates, technician, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.Please send resume and cover letter to rkhayat[at]ccny[dot]cuny[dot]edu.
