Postdoctoral Research Scientist position at The Causton Lab, Columbia University Medical Center in New York City

Columbia University, New York City

The Causton Lab in the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research scientist to join our team. We are using the yeast respiratory oscillation (YRO) to obtain a comprehensive understanding of how cellular and metabolic function are regulated over time. This rhythm coordinates virtually all of yeast physiology and shares multiple features with circadian rhythms in more complex organisms but occurs in the absence of a clock. The YRO is thus ideal for understanding the wiring of the cellular architecture common to all eukaryotes.

Experimental assays and techniques we use include, but are not limited to: molecular biology, continuous monitoring and omics-based methodologies, quantification of metabolites using plate-based assays, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, metabolic tracing, basic techniques in handling yeast etc. The postdoc will be responsible for the design and execution of experiments, data collection and analysis, manuscript preparation, and the dissemination of findings at scientific conferences. This three-year position will include opportunities for training and career development both within the laboratory and within the wider academic community. The PI has a demonstrated commitment to mentoring and welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds.

The CUMC Dept of Pathology and Cell Biology a world-class group of investigators that is one of the top-ranked Pathology Departments in the country that provides a supportive and collegial environment with extensive opportunities for professional development and advancement to top tier careers in academia and industry.
