Position Summary

We are seeking a motivated candidate to join the Mitochondrial Psychobiology Laboratory at NYSPI/Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Our mission is to define the cellular mechanisms underlying mind-body processes, with a focus on mitochondria. The lab’s translational research program involves a combination of laboratory and clinical studies. The successful applicant will work collaboratively with other lab members and both external and internal collaborators on research projects aiming to understand the role of mitochondria in human health. Specifically, they will run the biological sample processing and data processing pipelines to study stress-related mitochondrial signaling using cell-free mitochondrial DNA (cf-mtDNA), a newly defined biomarker quantifiable in different biofluids.

Tasks will involve receiving and processing biological samples (serum, plasma, saliva, others), using DNA extraction and quantitative PCR to generate new data.
