Summary Description

Columbia University’s Department of Systems Biology invites applicants for a senior level research position of Associate Research Scientist. Candidates should have strong scientific and postdoctoral experience.

The integration of quantitative analysis, high-throughput experimentation, and technology development is the hallmark of systems biology at Columbia. In everything we do, the Department of Systems Biology stresses the importance of combining quantitative approaches with experimentation, and of bringing together theory and practical applications. This approach enables us to pursue research in a wide range of areas, including:

-the prediction of protein structure, function, and localization;
-the study of protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions;
-gene expression analysis and prediction of regulatory network structure;
-the study of complex inherited traits;
-reconstruction and analysis of metabolic networks;
-dynamic simulations of cellular networks;
-image analysis and interpretation.

Associate Research Scientists will work collaboratively on multidisciplinary teams to map and reconstruct cell regulatory networks at the molecular level; use computational models to predict how genomic and epigenomic diversity processed by these networks leads to physiologic or pathologic phenotypes; experimentally validate the computational predictions that are derived from these models; and develop new technologies for studying biology at the systems level.

Minimum Degree Required

Minimum Qualifications
