Position Title Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Department JSB Systems Biology
Division Systems Biology
Location Medical Center
Columbia University’s Department of Systems Biology is seeking a qualified candidate for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist (computational) position in Dr. Andrea Califano’s laboratory http://califano.c2b2.columbia.edu/. Candidates possessing both experimental and computational backgrounds will be especially well suited to fill this position. The integration of quantitative analysis, high-throughput experimentation, and technology development is the hallmark of systems biology at Columbia. The Postdoctoral Research Scientist 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
A PhD in one of the following disciplines: computational biology, physics, computer science, biochemistry, or molecular biology is required. Additional work-related experience will be a plus. A proven publication track record is required to be considered for this position.
-Knowledge of standard computer languages, including Java, PERL, and C/C++.
-Strong analytical and quantitative background.
-Experience in the computational identification of putative Protein-DNA and Protein-Protein interactions using a diverse set of high-throughput data modalities, including microarray expression profiles, ChIP-Chip, sequence, and proteomics data.
-Familiarity with processing large genomic data sets and with a variety of reverse engineering techniques, including optimization-based, statistical, and integrative approaches.
-Familiarity with network biology algorithms, including both network reverse engineering and analysis, as well as with the underlying biological knowledge related to transcriptional and post-translational interactions is critical to be considered for this position, as is in depth knowledge of the foundations of machine learning and probability theory.
-Excellent communication and writing skills.
