The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University brings together researchers from different scientific disciplines to transform our understanding of the mind and brain. In this highly interactive research environment, laboratories work together to gain critical insights into human health by exploring how the brain develops, performs, endures and recovers. The Zuckerman Institute is housed in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, an architectural masterpiece on Columbia University’s new Manhattanville campus.
A lab within the Zuckerman Institute seeks an Associate Research Scientist (ARS) to facilitate studies of the cerebellum in electric fish, including in vivo functional imaging, electrophysiological, anatomical, and behavioral investigations of its function. The ideal candidate will have expertise in two-photon microscopy, in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology, behavioral analysis, and strong analytical and computational skills, as well as superior motivation, drive and demonstrated aptitude for research.
MD, PhD, or doctorate in related field
Strong candidates will be interested and focused on interdisciplinary work.
About Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University
Located within the Jerome L. Greene Science Center in the rising Manhattanville campus of Columbia University, the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute is comprised of world-renowned scientists, bringing together psychologists, engineers, and brain scientists, with the goal of understanding the complexities of mind and brain.
The Institute supports interdisciplinary neuroscience research and discovery by scholars across the university and promises to be the most comprehensive institute for brain science. The Institute will also foster programming events with a focus on the community. Such programs will communicate what we currently know, and what we hope to someday know, about the brain. The intention of the Institute is to spark a scientific and creative pursuit in the next generation of scientists—and people of all ages.
