Associat Research Scientist
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 facilitate research on the role of heterochromatin binding proteins on olfactory receptor gene regulation. The Associate research scientist is responsible for developing and implementing techniques that allow the identification of heterochromatin-enriched proteins expressed in olfactory sensory neurons, as well for developing mouse models for the study of these proteins.
MD, PhD, or doctorate in related field
Strong candidates will be interested and focused on interdisciplinary work. The ideal candidate will have expertise in biochemistry, molecular biology, bioinformatics and mouse genetics.
