Field(s) of Specialization: Molecular & Cell Biology, RNA Biology, Genomics, CRISPR
Description: The Xuebing Wu laboratory in the Department of Medicine and the Department of Systems Biology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center is seeking a motivated postdoctoral research scientist. The successful candidate will develop integrated genomic approaches to study the mechanisms of post-transcriptional gene regulation in human cells, including mRNA folding and translational regulation. Ideally, the candidate will have training and experience in molecular biology (cloning, next-generation sequencing, etc.) and mammalian cell culture. The postdoctoral period is for a minimum of two years and the candidate will be mentored towards an independent academic career. An ability to work independently as well as in a strong team-science environment is required. More information about the Wu laboratory can be found at https://xuebingwu.github.io/.
