Postdoctoral Research Scientist/Fellow

Columbia University Medical Center

New York , United States

NEW YORK, NEW YORK (USA). The Department of Pathology at Columbia University is recruiting a Postdoctoral Research Scientist to work in the lab of Dr. Markus Siegelin.

The Siegelin lab at Columbia University focuses on the establishment of novel efficacious rational drug combination therapies for brain tumors and other highly recalcitrant malignancies by targeting tumor cell metabolism. We are looking for an energetic, goal-oriented, creative, flexible, proactive and collaborative young scientist, who would like to work in the exciting and emerging field of cancer metabolism. We are interrogating how anti-cancer treatments reprogram tumor metabolism and how metabolic reprogramming in tumors can be targeted for therapy. To accomplish this goal, our group uses extracellular flux analysis, mass spectrometry and transcriptome and proteome analysis, followed by mechanism related studies (chromatin immunoprecipitation, gene silencing) and in vivo confirmation in mouse models.

Minimum degree required PhD/MD. Experience in cell culture and standard molecular biology techniques, such as western blotting and PCR. Experience with cancer or metabolism related research is a plus, but not an absolute requirement. Ability to work in a fast-pace environment and to demonstrate excellent communication and inter-personal skills and the
ability to present and publish research.

We are committed to incumbent's career development, such as submission of fellowship applications and presentations at national or international meetings. A competitive salary and benefit package is offered upon employment. For more information on the position, please contact Dr. Markus Siegelin (
