The Department of Neurology and the Center for Motor Neuron Biology and Disease (MNC) at Columbia University Medical Center is seeking a faculty member to conduct basic and translational research on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We invite applicants studying the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration in ALS to apply, including those particularly interested in developing therapeutic strategies based on an understanding of the biology of the disease.
Columbia University has an exceptional program in basic, translational and clinical neuroscience related to ALS and related neurodegenerative disorders. The appointee will have opportunities to interact with members of other Institutes and Centers at Columbia, including the MNC, the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and the Institute for Genomic Medicine. The successful candidate will also have access to exceptional core facilities including the Columbia Stem Cell Institute and the High-Throughput Screening Center.
We encourage applications at the professional rank of Assistant Professor, within 5 years of completion of postdoctoral training. The successful candidate will have a non-tenure-track appointment in Neurology and is expected to develop and maintain an independent, externally funded research program and to interface with clinical and translational efforts at Columbia. The appointment is supported by the Eleanor and Lou Gehrig ALS Center.
