Postdoc opening

Postdoc opening for the Irving Institute for Cancer Dynamics Postdoctoral Program

As part of the Irving Institute for Cancer Dynamics Postdoctoral Program, we seek up to two postdoctoral research scientists who are recent Ph.D. graduates and who are interested in developing independent and novel research in an environment that fosters multi-disciplinary, collaborative research. While these positions might suit a researcher with some post-doctoral experience, we also encourage applications from recent PhD graduates. Candidates will be mentored by at least two faculty members, at least one of whom should be based on the Morningside Heights campus of Columbia University, to be identified through interaction with the candidate.
