The Hargus lab at the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology at Columbia University is looking for a highly motivated, skilled and driven research assistant who is interested in stem cell biology, stem cell differentiation, and neurodegenerative diseases. We use differentiated human induced pluripotent stem cells to identify mechanisms leading to neuronal degeneration in frontotemporal dementia. As an important member of the team, the research assistant will culture and differentiate pluripotent stem cells and will perform Western blots, qPCR, immunohistochemical studies and project-related in vitro and in vivo assays on these cells. The position is available full-time. Applicants with a strong interest in an academic career and in taking part in the publication process are especially encouraged to apply. A Bachelor’s degree in science and a minimum of 1 year of related research experience is required.
