An Associate Research Scientist position is available in the Danino laboratory at Columbia University.
The goals for the position are to build and successfully execute exciting, independent projects within the labs research program through collaboration with the PI, lab members, and collaborating labs. For this project, the role will specifically involve close interaction with Dr. Nick Arpaia’s laboratory at CUIMC. A successful applicant will bridge the research between the laboratories and develop research projects both for shared grants as well as novel independent directions. Beyond independent research, the applicant will build towards mentoring other students in the laboratory at multiple levels whenever possible, and provide some support to the lab and PI in terms of grant writing, directing research, and lab management.
The laboratory’s research broadly includes synthetic biology, quantitative biology, and cancer. Two primary areas of interest are in engineering of dynamic gene circuits and microbial diagnostics/therapeutics for cancer and other diseases. See the laboratory’s website for more information: http://daninolab.nyc. The lab is located on the Morningside campus of Columbia University in the Northwest Corner Building.
