I have two positions available in my lab, a postdoc position, and a lab manager/staff associate position.
RNA-Guided Genome Rearrangements at Columbia University (Landweber lab) in the City of New York
Postdoctoral Research positions are available in our newly renovated lab overlooking the Hudson River in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, with a research focus on Non-Coding RNA-Mediated Genome Rearrangement, Genome Editing, Epigenetics,
Chromatin, Genome Evolution, and Transposon Involvement.
Laura Landweber is seeking to hire postdoctoral researchers to study the mechanism of gene and genome unscrambling in the ciliate
, particularly the role of long non-coding RNAs and piRNAs in this process.
Requirements: PhD in molecular biology or relevant field. Strong experimental (or computational) training, experience, and publications from the Ph.D., ability to work independently and creatively, as well as collaboratively and strong research and written/oral
communication skills are necessary.
This is a one-year initial appointment with opportunity for renewal. Funding is available for longer. Please email [log in to unmask]
to apply. Include a cover letter, CV, statement of research interests and email addresses for three references. Application
review will begin immediately; start date is flexible.
The Landweber lab has a strong commitment to diversity and to supporting its students, postdocs, and alumni at all career stages. Many lab alumni have gone on to receive tenure in academic positions or chosen other successful options. Conference participation
is encouraged throughout the postdoc period, as part of training for a scientific career.
The Landweber lab is located at Columbia University Medical Center in the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biophysics, with joint appointments in Systems Biology and Biological Sciences on the Arts & Sciences campus. Housing assistance is available.
