As a Junior Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Dr. Galkin's laboratory, successful applicant will initiate NIH-funded studies on the developing brain and new ways to reduce perinatal ischemia/reperfusion brain injury. The work will require use of a wide variety of methods, from biochemical analysis to culturing cells from transgenic mice. The major areas of responsibility will include: 1) design and performance of hands on research as agreed upon with Dr. Galkin; 2) presentation of her findings in local, national and international forums; 3) drafting of grant proposals and manuscripts; 4) providing informal research guidance to junior laboratory members; 5) attendance at lectures and seminars held at Columbia University, as well as active participation in the extensive neuroscience and mitochondriology community at Columbia University. It is expected that the postdoc will form new collaborations at Columbia University and externally that will expand the experimental tools available to the Galkin lab to include use of omics approaches.
