New Jersey Center for Science, Technology and Mathematics (NJCSTM)
Statistics/Probabilistic Methods (Undergraduate Lecture Only) – to teach the basic probability theories and statistics techniques, including basic probability concepts and calculations, random variables, probability distributions, statistical data & data collection, descriptive statistics, sampling distribution, inferential statistics, confidence intervals, statistical hypothesis testing, etc., with application examples in Biology, Chemistry, and/or Physics. The position requires formal education in statistics and probability. Two lecture sections: Mondays & Thursdays 9:30-10:45am and Tuesdays & Fridays 2:00-3:15pm.
Biochemistry Honors I (Undergraduate Lecture & Lab) – to teach a comprehensive introduction to the chemistry of biological molecules and systems, including membrane proteins and enzymes, and how they function in the cell. The course is designed to prepare students for careers in biomedicine and associated research disciplines. Specific techniques addressed in the lab will include pipetting, reagent preparation, aseptic technique, centrifugation, bacterial growth and quantitation, spectrophotometry, plasmid strain growth, DNA extraction, agarose gel preparation and DNA electrophoresis, restriction endonuclease digests and plasmid mapping, computer-aided database access and virtual cloning, computer-aided 3-D structure predictions, bacterial transformation with plasmids, cloning vector preparation, site-directed mutagenesis, protein production and purification, affinity chromatography, protein gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), native protein PAGE, gel analysis and photography, chemical crosslinking, pull-down assays, limited proteolysis, protein complex characterization, and interpretation and statistical analysis of results. Lecture – Tuesdays & Fridays 11:00am-12:15pm; Lab – Wednesdays 1:55-4:25pm.
Mathematical & Computational Methods of Science II (Undergraduate Lab Only) – to teach the second part of a two-semester sequence. The dominant theme of the first part of the course was an understanding of the mathematical language and application of the concept of change. Students explored how the derivative of a function was useful for describing physical and biological systems where forces were known, but the underlying solutions may not have been. In Math/Comp II, students will learn the mathematical language and application of how these changes add up. This course covers both discrete accumulation (summation and series) and continuous accumulation (integration). Specific concepts covered by the course include: integral notation, indefinite and definite integrals, series and numerical integration, infinite and Taylor series, function approximation, higher order numerical techniques and integration of ODEs. 1 lab section: Wednesdays 11:00am-1:45pm.
Advanced Cell Biology – to teach the second part of a graduate level two-course sequence which covers the biochemical and physiological role of proteins in cell structure and function, with an emphasis on the molecular, chemical and physical principles and interrelationships required for biosynthesis and cellular metabolism, intracellular trafficking and transport, and signal transduction. Topics for discussion include membrane structure and transport, protein sorting, vesicular trafficking, cell signaling, the cytoskeleton, the cell cycle and apoptosis, cell-cell junctions and the extracellular matrix. Fridays 4:30-7:15pm.
Advanced Systems Biology – to teach an advanced biotechnology course designed for second year graduate biotechnology students that will provide an understanding of the complex interactions within biological systems. Students will gain an appreciation for the methodology employed to investigate system-wide interrogation of molecular and cellular processes. Emphasis will be on genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic approaches and description of the state of the art techniques used in these fields. Computational tools used to manage the volume of data generated using high-throughput techniques will also be subject of discussion. Mondays 7:30-10:15pm.
