Glide Year Opportunity: Biomedical Research Assistant Position at Rockefeller University

A member of our campus recruiting team will be coming to Barnard to conduct interviews for Biomedical Research Assistant Positions on Tuesday, February 14, 2017.  This is an excellent opportunity for those seniors interested in taking 1-2 years off before attending medical and graduate programs.  As a Research Assistant, these students will be given the chance to further their curiosity about science to find out firsthand what research is all about.  Not to mention we have/had many Barnard grads working and thriving on our campus (including Rachel Caron and Natalie Thulin to name a few)!  Please find a more detailed job description below,

Applications must be made directly through Barnard NACElink, and the deadline to do so is Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 11:59pm. This opportunity is open to current seniors at Barnard.

We are currently hiring students for 1-2 year biomedical Research Assistant positions to work closely with senior scientists and participate in challenging, complex, and cutting-edge research projects.

Research Assistants will learn an immense amount of information about science and discovery.  The learning curve will be steep and the work hours long (on occasion), but it will all be worth it.  The techniques will be complex and numerous and diverse, spanning the whole spectrum of translational research from molecular/cellular/genetic/chemical/bioinformatics to in vitro to in vivo.  Your research will take advantage of the latest technologies and techniques, you will be an integral part of the lab, participate in journal clubs and lab meetings, and attend scientific lectures/talks/seminars.  The unspoken luxuries also include our intimate community, extreme preside (number of Nobel prizes and laureates on-campus), incredible funding and core facilities, and the perks – free beer at our Faculty Club, river view, living in NYC!   

After a two-year period, research assistants go on to the top Ph.D., M.D. and MD/Ph.D. programs, while some choose to continue on as a third-year researcher to learn more.

Bachelor's in science required. Will consider Master’s degree. We offer all the great benefits you would expect plus a generous tuition reimbursement program. 

Our Culture:
*incredible haven for some of the best science in the world.
*scientific oasis
*inspiring, collaborative atmosphere.
*strong social and environmental consciousness.
*intellectually curious academic environment.
*14-acre campus setting in NYC.

Follow your passion for excellence in science and join our researchers in the pursuit of science for the benefit of humanity.
