CAMPUS SPECIFIC INFORMATION

The CUNY School of Medicine (CSOM) at The City College of New York (CCNY) located in the heart of Harlem, is the only medical school in the City University of New York system. Building upon more than 40 years of the success as the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, we offer a BS/MD degree and a Physician Assistant Master’s Degree. True to its legacy of access, opportunity and community transformation, the newly-accredited CSOM’s mission remains to recruit highly talented students as diverse as the city itself. CSOM places a special emphasis on recruitment of those who are underrepresented in the field of medicine, and on training high quality, culturally competent clinicians equipped meet the healthcare needs of New York’s medically under-served communities. As a major priority, CSOM seeks to enhance the recruitment and retention of senior leadership, faculty and staff to more closely reflect the diversity of our student body.

The Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Biomedical Sciences (MCBS) was formed through the merger of several basic science departments and represents one of the four departments in the school (Community Health and Social Medicine, Medical Education, and Clinical Medicine). The department plays a critical role in our mission-driven BS/MD program and Physician Assistant program through the teaching of the basic science curriculum and by conducting extramurally funded research. The research agenda of the current members of the department is centered on neuroscience, microbiology and immunology, cardiovascular disease, and oncology.

Under direction of the MCBS Chief College Laboratory Technician, the College Laboratory Technician (CLT) will perform the following:

  • Prepare all necessary post mortem cadavers, samples (preserved), reagents, solutions, apparatus, demonstrations, and other materials for use in assigned labs.

  • Operate, maintain, repair, and clean equipment and accessories used in assigned labs.

  • Maintain a clean, orderly, and functional laboratory.

  • Oversee labs in the absence of the chief technician.

  • Attend instructional seminars and workshops regarding assigned laboratory duties.

  • Maintain an up-to-date inventory of all lab equipment, instruments, and accessories.

  • Assist in the acquisition and maintenance of the chemical and equipment inventory.

  • Perform other duties related to and necessary for the safe and efficient functioning of the department as assigned.
