Postdoctoral Fellow Opportunity – Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory – Long Island, NY
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Professor Jeremy Borniger for highly motivated Ph.D. candidates interested in using systems neuroscience approaches to understand interactions between the central nervous system and cancer. His recent work demonstrated bi-directional relationships among breast cancer, immunity, and the brain (Borniger et al., 2018; Cell Metabolism) which drive sleep and metabolic disruption. His lab is located in the newly renovated Demerec building, which has a long and storied history of scientific discoveries (including 4 Nobel prizes). It is an exciting opportunity to merge neuroscience with cancer research in order to effect change in cancer treatment and understand multisystem interactions in health and disease.
Applicants should possess a Ph.D., preferably in neuroscience, immunology, molecular biology, computational biology, or a related area and be dedicated to research. We especially invite applicants with non-traditional or unique backgrounds to apply.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory offers a highly collaborative social and scientific environment as well as a competitive salary and benefits in a beautiful location about one hour from New York City.
