Columbia University Medical Center: Postdoctoral Research Scientist


A research position at the level of Postdoctoral Research Scientist is available at the Center for High-Throughput Minimally-Invasive Radiation Biodosimetry at Columbia University Medical Center to join a research team tasked with the development, testing and validation of robotically-based commercial high-content, high throughput cellular screening systems for radiation biodosimetry.

Qualified candidates should have a PhD in cell biology, biochemistry, biology or immunology and experience with chromosome based assays (in particular FISH or PNA painting). Experience working with the Dicentric Chromosome Assay (DCA) or with high throughput cellular screening platforms (HTS) would be advantageous as a large focus of the work will be to support implementation and testing of the DCA on an HTS platform. This work will be based at the Columbia University Medical Center (www.crr-cu.org). The applicant will also be involved in other ongoing projects in the field of radiation biology. The candidate must be able to work in a group/team environment, consisting of physicists, engineers, and biologists while also being able to work independently. Strong communication skills are need for writing and presentation of research in a multi-disciplinary research environment.
