Position Description

The DNA Learning Center (DNALC) of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has immediate full-time educator positions available at the new Regeneron DNALC in Sleepy Hollow, NY. This center, which opened in fall 2019, is a unique collaboration between an established research institute and a rising star in biotechnology. The facility has two teaching labs, teacher offices, and a prep lab, and is located on the Sleepy Hollow campus of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

Responsibilities will include:

- providing hands-on genetics and molecular biology instruction to precollege students visiting the DNALC for academic year field trips, summer camps, and extended research projects;

- training and managing a small staff of high school interns;

- delivering in-school instruction;

- assisting with student research programs;

- conducting teacher training; and

- developing teaching modules.

Selected candidates will become members of a small, influential group recognized worldwide as a leader in creating and disseminating new methods in genetics education, including the fields of genomics, bioinformatics, and data science. Over 700,000 students have conducted experiments with DNALC staff-join our team as we aim to reach a million and more! For more information, browse the DNALC's website at

Position Requirements

Strong candidates will have at least a Bachelor's degree, a background in biology and experience teaching. New York State teaching certification is a plus, but not required. Postdoctoral scientists who would like to pursue teaching careers are also encouraged to apply-especially those with experience in personal genomics, DNA barcoding, metabarcoding, or bioinformatics. The position demands a motivated self-starter who can work independently and as part of a team, with excellent writing, computer, and communication skills.

Flexible scheduling will require some weekend work. Occasional travel between DNALC facilities may be required for training or instruction.

We offer a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package.
