Columbia University’s Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute (the Zuckerman Institute) brings together researchers to explore aspects of mind and brain, through the exchange of ideas and active collaboration. The Zuckerman Institute’s home will be the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia’s new Manhattanville campus. Situated in the heart of Manhattan, at full capacity the Zuckerman Institute will house approximately 47 laboratories employing a broad range of interdisciplinary approaches to transform our understanding of the mind and brain. In this highly collaborative environment, labs work together to gain critical insights into human health by exploring how the brain develops, performs, endures and recovers from trauma or disease.

A lab within the Zuckerman Institute seeks an Associate Research Scientist (ARS) to carry out independent research to understand the role of genome architecture in the control of gene expression by distant regulatory elements. The ideal candidate will have expertise in molecular biology, the genetics of Drosophila melanogaster, and high throughput genomic methods. Confocal microscopy and other imaging skills are also important as well as strong motivation, independence, drive and a demonstrated aptitude for research.

Qualifications:

MD, PhD, or doctorate in related field

Strong candidates will be interested and focused on interdisciplinary work and exploring novel uses for traditional techniques.

Columbia University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer —Race/Gender/Disability/Veteran.
