PostDoc Fellowship-Cancer Genetics-Columbia University Medical Center (United States)
Location: New York, NY, United States
Dead line: May 10, 2016
Description and Requirements: A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Institute for Cancer Genetics at Columbia University Medical Center in New York. Ideal candidates will be highly motivated scientists who will work in top-quality, high-pressure biomedical science environment.
The primary responsibility will be to contribute to an active and innovative research program focused on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of cell cycle regulation, differentiation, and tumorigenesis in the nervous system. Our ongoing research activity is currently focused on the role of key transcriptional pathways and the ubiquitin/proteasome system in neural development and cancer. Our professional vision is based on the concurrent exploitation of a variety of state-of-the-art technologies (proteomics, bioinformatics, mouse genetics, and human cancer translational studies) that together aim to build unprecedented, albeit comprehensive, paradigms for stem cell biology, neurogenesis, and cancer research.
The successful candidate will have experience with protein biochemistry/protein purification, general molecular biology, and transgenic/knockout mouse models. Experience with primary cultures of mammalian neural cells and bioinformatics/gene expression profiling a plus. Position available immediately.
Applicants should send curriculum vitae and names and addresses of three references to:
