Please apply by sending a cover letter and CV via http://apply.interfolio.com/83292 AND by also sending your application via email directly to ca60@nyu.edu

A position for laboratory associate is available in the lab of Prof. Cristina Alberini at the Center for Neural Science, New York University.

The Laboratory Manager will manage the day-to-day operations of a research laboratory focused on investigating molecular mechanisms of memory in rodents, particularly mice and rats. These operations will support the work of post-docs, and students. Will have oversight of equipment maintenance and troubleshooting; implement and enforce lab and institutional policies, including safety programs and regulatory compliance (IACUC, recombinant DNA, IBC); oversee the animal facility and organize weekly lab meetings, including management of video conferencing when needed. Also, the Laboratory Manager will coordinate material exchange with collaborators; delegate and enforce individual responsibilities and management of research support staff; order and keep an inventory of general lab supplies weekly; negotiate pricing and contracts with external vendors; assist with budget management; and centralize lab protocols and inventory of essential lab supplies/reagents. He/she will be responsible for managing the laboratory equipment, ordering, functioning, EPA, animal protocols filing and compliance, and training the new personnel. He/she will also participate in research projects that will be focusing on molecular mechanisms of memory in rats and mice and in related disease models. Salary will be commensurate with degree and level of experience.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent plus three years of related experience
  • Demonstrated experience organizing and implementing disparate workflows to meet organizational schedules and requirements
  • Excellent oral, written, and interpersonal skills

Preferred Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree in laboratory science or Ph.D. in neuroscience
  • 3 years of experience working in a laboratory environment
  • Familiarity with research laboratory data management

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Molecular Mechanisms of Learning and Memory

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the lab of Dr. Cristina Alberini, in the Center for Neural Science at New York University. The position is part of a large project that investigates molecular mechanisms of long-term memory formation and enhancement and applies the gained knowledge to models of memory impairments.

The studies will use a multi-level approach across developmental ages in mice and rats, including models of diseases. Salary will be commensurate with research experience and based on the NIH guidelines for postdoctoral research associates, trainees, and fellows.

A Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Biology, or associated area is preferred. Experience in molecular techniques and animal behavior is preferred.

Prospective applicants can email Dr. Alberini directly (ca60@nyu.edu) with a brief introduction and CV.
