Job Description

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Peter Sims at Columbia University Medical Center in the Department of Systems Biology. We are located in the Irving Cancer Research Center, a modern and highly collaborative research environment on CUMC's campus in New York City. The lab has established a multi-disciplinary effort to understand the molecular underpinnings of translational regulation in the brain, neurological disorders, and cancer. Multiple projects are available that take advantage of recent advances in next-generation sequencing, microscopy, computational biology, animal models, and procurement of human specimens.

Candidates must be highly motivated Ph.D.-level scientists. Experience with next-generation sequencing is preferred, but not essential. Researchers with expertise in bioinformatics are also of great interest. Prospective candidates should email Dr. Sims directly and include a CV.
