4 Year Degree
Columbia's Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute (Zuckerman Institute) brings together an extraordinary group of world-class scientists into the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, a state-of-the-art facility, to transform our understanding of the brain and mind.
The Institute seeks to hire a Staff Associate for the Lomvardas lab.
Through the exchange of ideas and an active collaboration process while conducting pioneering research into how the brain develops, performs, endures and recovers, the Staff Associate will assist the Principal Investigator to identify the molecular mechanisms of olfactory receptor gene choice. The Staff Associate will primarily perform genetic experiments and manage various strains existing in the Lomvardas Lab. The Staff Associate will be responsible for genotyping, setting mouse crosses, separate at weaning age etch. The Staff Associate will be responsible for performing histological characterization of the mutant mice and will perform tissue culture experiments and protein purifications.

About Columbia University:Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute
Located within the Jerome L. Greene Science Center in the rising Manhattanville campus of Columbia University, the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute is comprised of world-renowned scientists, bringing together psychologists, engineers, and brain scientists, with the goal of understanding the complexities of mind and brain.
The Institute supports interdisciplinary neuroscience research and discovery by scholars across the university and promises to be the most comprehensive institute for brain science. The Institute will also foster programming events with a focus on the community. Such programs will communicate what we currently know, and what we hope to someday know, about the brain. The intention of the Institute is to spark a scientific and creative pursuit in the next generation of scientists—and people of all ages.
