Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Columbia University Irving Medical Center - Department of Ob/Gyn

New York, New York, NY, United States

The Suh Laboratory at Columbia University Irving Medical Center is actively seeking postdoctoral fellows to join her lab. There are 1-2 positions available within each of the following specialties:

  • Postdoctoral Positions in Female Reproductive Aging
  • Bioinformatics Postdoctoral Positions in Human Functional Genomics of Aging and Disease
  • Postdoctoral Positions in Human Functional Genomics of Aging and Disease

 

Postdoctoral Positions in Female Reproductive Aging

 

The Suh Laboratory at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center is actively seeking 1-2 highly motivated postdoctoral fellows with interests and experiences in female reproductive aging.

Research focus: The Sub lab is interested in understanding genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that underlie the interface of intrinsic aging and disease in humans using functional genomics approaches.

The successful candidate will work closely with Dr. Yousin Suh in research projects addressing cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate aging of the female reproductive tissues. Possible research projects include, but are not limited to, identification of novel pathways and factors that impact reproductive aging process, mechanisms that regulate the aging of reproductive organ-associated cells, identification of age-related interactions between the stem cells and their niche, development of approaches to modulate reproductive aging. This position will provide opportunity to participate in the emerging field of reproductive aging research and valuable experience for a career in either academia or industry.

 

Application Requirements:

  1. PhD or MD or equivalent degree.
  2. A record of publications from PhD or prior postdoctoral training work.
  3. Prior training in molecular cell biology is preferred.
  4. Prior experience in reproductive biology is highly desired.

Bioinformatics Postdoctoral Positions

in Human Functional Genomics of Aging and Disease

 

The Suh Laboratory at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center is actively seeking 1-2 highly motivated postdoctoral fellows interested in utilizing contemporary computational (epi)genomics methods and approaches to address biological questions related to aging, reproductive aging and aging-related diseases. Candidate should possess a solid background in genomics and bioinformatics, and display a strong interest in applying cutting-edge next-generation sequencing-based technologies to aging research.

 

The candidate fellow will be involved and primarily responsible for:

  • Collecting, analyzing, and interpreting publicly available data, including (epi)genomic annotation hubs, transcriptomic/proteomic databases, and GWAS and high-throughput sequencing datasets from individually relevant studies.

  • Generating novel hypotheses from the analysis and integration of data resources both inside and outside of the lab and developing research strategies.

Qualifications include:

  • A doctoral degree in biology, bioinformatics, computational biology or another appropriate field.
  • Comprehensive knowledge of NGS data analysis flow and hands-on experience with at least one aspect of its applications (e.g., WGS/WES, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, etc.)
  • Basic knowledge of human genome, gene expression, and cell biology.
  • Familiar with R and one or more other programming languages, e.g., Python or Perl.
  • The ability of independent learning and thinking in a highly dynamic and decentralized environment, as well as being a team player to contribute to many ongoing collaborative projects.

Postdoctoral Positions

in Human Functional Genomics of Aging and Disease

 

The Suh Laboratory at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) is actively seeking 1-2 highly motivated postdoctoral fellows interested in any of the following areas: (1) MicroRNAs in Human Aging and Aging-Related Diseases. (2) Mouse Models of MicroRNAs in Aging and Aging-related Diseases. (3) Identification and Characterization of MicroRNA to Develop Intervention Strategies against Aging and Aging-related Diseases

 

Research focus: The Sub lab is interested in understanding genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that underlie the interface of intrinsic aging and disease in humans using functional genomics approaches. The lab focuses on discovery of microRNAs in the human population with longevity history and investigation of the molecular mechanisms underlying longevity. To go from discovery to mechanisms and translate this information into preventive or therapeutic strategies, the Suh lab utilizes the systematic administration of longevity-associated miRNAs by intravenous/intraperitoneal injection into mice and inducible transgenic mouse models to investigate the functional impact on physiological outcomes relevant to aging and longevity.

 

Lab expertise: The lab specializes in the analysis and integration to identify differential expressed microRNAs in human and mouse related with aging and longevity and in manipulation of particular microRNA by transfection in cells and by intravenous/intraperitoneal injection or inducible system in mice to investigate the molecular mechanisms of longevity-associated microRNAs.


Application Requirements:

  1. PhD or MD or equivalent degree.
  2. A record of publications from PhD or prior postdoctoral training work.
  3. Prior training in molecular cell biology is preferred.
  4. Prior experience in microRNA and/or mouse study is highly desired.
