EPITHELIAL STEM CELL POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW
The Department of Dermatology at Columbia University is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral scientist with an interest in adult mammalian stem cell homeostasis to join our group. The position will address the mechanistic regulation of adult cutaneous epithelial niches that may be compromised during aging and the impact of this dysregulation on tissue integrity, function and cancer.
The candidate will be responsible for performing rigorous cell biology, biochemistry and bioinformatic analyses using well-defined mouse models targeting specific stem cell niches in the adult skin. The candidate will be responsible handling bioinformatic analyses focused primarily on single-cell and bulk RNAseq data sets. Candidates with prior experience in bioinformatics (transcriptomics and genomics), systems biology, or RNAseq data structure/analysis will be considered highly competitive. Candidates at minimum should have experience with standard bioinformatic analysis (differential expression, basic classification, genomics, data visualization, etc), statistics, and/or programming experience (R, perl, java, python, etc).
Prospective applicants should have a Ph.D. or equivalent and should possess strong laboratory, analytical, interpersonal and communication skills.
The Basic Science Research Group within the Department of Dermatology at Columbia University is an exciting, multidisciplinary workplace with excellent resources. We are seeking creative and highly motivated individuals interested in working in a dynamic research environment, where they will have the opportunity to gain diverse basic, pre-clinical and clinical research experience, and receive excellent mentoring.
