The Columbia University Radiological Research Accelerator Facility (RARAF.org) has a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position available. RARAF is a multidisciplinary research facility specializing in precision irradiation and analysis of biological samples using a variety of innovative radiation sources. The long term focus is the understanding mechanism of cellular radiation damage and repair.
The applicant will be involved in ongoing projects involving precise irradiation systems using charged particles and photons. Possible projects involve the development of high dose rate and carbon ion irradiation systems for pre-clinical studies. The candidate must be able to work in a group/team environment consisting of physicists, engineers, and biologists while also being able to work independently. Strong communication skills are a need for writing and presentation of research in a multi-disciplinary research environment.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. in physics or engineering with an emphasis on design, construction, and implementation of custom research devices. A background in ion beam optics, light microscopy or irradiation systems is preferred though not essential.
Please be sure to include a statement of research interests, CV with publication list, and contact information for three references with application. Application can be made through: http://pa334.peopleadmin.com/postings/4693
