Postdoctoral position available at Columbia University to study RNA-mediated mechanisms of neurodevelopmental disorders

Posted on December 2,

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Livio Pellizzoni at Columbia University to study disease-linked RNA binding proteins that are essential for the development and function of neural circuits that control movement. The research project will employ multidisciplinary approaches in the areas of genomics, RNA/protein biochemistry and neuroscience using human stem cell-derived neurons and mouse models.

The Pellizzoni lab is part of the Center for Motor Neuron Biology and Disease and is affiliated with the Departments of Neurology and Pathology & Cell Biology at Columbia University.

The candidate must hold a Ph.D. in the biological sciences and have strong expertise in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology. Prior experience with human stem cells, mouse models and/or viral gene delivery is desirable but not required. The ideal candidate should be highly motivated and have strong communication skills, ability to work effectively in a team environment, and a proven record of research accomplishments in the RNA field.

Interested applicants should email Dr. Livio Pellizzoni ([email protected]) their CV, a letter of introduction with a description of scientific interests and career goals, and contact information for three references.
