The Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University are currently recruiting outstanding scientists, preferentially at the Assistant Professor tenure-track level. We are seeking candidates from diverse background who have demonstrated exceptional ability, creativity and productivity. Appropriate departmental affiliation will be decided after selection. Generous start-up funds, space and mentorship will be provided.
Research labs will be housed in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia’s new Manhattanville campus.
Areas of interest include:
1) genetic, genomic and evolutionary approaches that investigate the neural basis of behavior;
2) use of optical, chemical, electrical or computational methods to link neural circuitry to behavior;
3) computational, behavioral and/or physiological approaches to study cognitive and/or emotional processes; and
4) emerging issues in molecular, cellular and developmental neuroscience in health and disease.
