    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Research Scientist @ Columbia University -- New York, NY (US)
    Submitted by Leah Dimond; posted on Saturday, November 07, 2020


    Join Columbia University Medical Center's vibrant community and work alongside of world class faculty and researchers!

    The Department of Systems Biology (DSB) is seeking a qualified candidate for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position. The candidate will contribute to computational research performed in Dr. Aris Floratos's laboratory, in the context of interdisciplinary collaborations with experimental and computational scientists in diverse research areas including cancer and immunology. This work involves integrative analysis of multimodal datasets, including bulk and single-cell molecular profiles (e.g., gene expression, microRNA, epigenomics, genetic, and genomic data), leveraging well-established computational pipelines as well as novel network biology methodologies developed by our group and our DSB collaborators. This position requires a PhD in a domain related to biomedical research and computational sciences. Applicants should have a strong computational background (including background in machine learning, physics, mathematics, and related sciences) combined with a good understanding of molecular biology. The ideal candidate is expected to complement this experience with strong programming skills and working knowledge of existing genomic analysis tools. The successful candidate will be able to work and thrive at the interface between laboratory science and computational biology.


    Minimum Qualifications:
    • PhD in Computational Biology, Computer Science, Genetics, Physics, Mathematics, or similar field with publication record demonstrating expertise.
    • Fluency with R/Bioconductor and with at least one general-purpose programming language such as Java, Perl, Python, or C++.
    • Excellent communication skills and ability to work as member of a team.
    • Strong creative thinking and organizational skills with demonstrated experience in problem solving and programming for biomedical/computational research.
    Preferred Qualifications:
    Experience with analysis workflows for gene expression and whole genome/exome data, including use of read aligners. Familiarity with network biology methodologies, ideally demonstrated through publication record.


    All interested candidates must apply directly on Columbia's RAPS website under requisition number 00001959. Quick Link:


    Columbia University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from women and underrepresented minorities.
