I am based in the Biological Sciences Department on the main (Morningside Heights) campus, and have a secondary appointment in the Department of Systems Biology in the medical school. Our lab space is in a newly renovated space contiguous to computational groups run by Harmen Bussmaker and Guy Sella; we further benefit from close ties with Itsik Pe’er in computer science and Joe Pickrell and others at the New York Genome Center.
I am looking to recruit graduate students with an interest in evolution and genetics, and some quantitative background. Options for doctoral programs include the Biology Dept and C2B2; which is more appropriate depends on your training and interests. Please contact me for more information.
I am also looking to hire postdocs. Applicants must have a quantitative background or have extensive experience with genomic data analysis, as well as a sincere interest in biology. Programming skills are essential. Informal inquiries as well as applications (including a cv, copies of relevant publications and two names of recommenders) should be emailed to molly.przew at gmail.com.
Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at Columbia have access to subsidized housing within walking distance of campus.
