A little about us:
The Lieber Institute for Brain Development (LIBD) was conceived from the realization that a new approach is needed to fully exploit the unprecedented opportunities to accomplish the critical goal of helping affected individuals and their families. The LIBD aims to transform the research landscape in two ways: by providing new tools for scientific discovery and by developing new collaborative approaches to achieve our ambitious mission.
The mission of the Lieber Institute for Brain Development is to translate the understanding of basic genetic and molecular mechanisms of schizophrenia and related developmental brain disorders into clinical advances that change the lives of affected individuals.
The Lieber Institute is currently seeking a molecular and cellular biologist for the Drug Discovery Division to support small molecule drug discovery using biology and biochemistry techniques. The individual will develop, validate and execute various cellular and biochemical high-throughput assays to support drug lead-finding and optimization efforts in the context of multidisciplinary project teams.
