Columbia University's Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute (the Zuckerman Institute) brings together researchers to explore aspects of mind and brain, through the exchange of ideas and active collaboration. The Zuckerman Institute's home is the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia's Manhattanville campus. Situated in the heart of Manhattan, at full capacity the Zuckerman Institute will house over 50 laboratories employing a broad range of interdisciplinary approaches to transform our understanding of the mind and brain. In this highly collaborative environment, labs work together to gain critical insights into human health by exploring how the brain develops, performs, endures and recovers from trauma or disease.
In collaboration with the Ruta Lab at Rockefeller University, the Lomvardas Lab at the Zuckerman Institute is seeking a jointly appointed Postdoctoral Research Scientist who will tackle exciting questions exploring the structure and function of sensory receptors. Experience with biochemistry, membrane protein structure determination methods and biophysics are preferred. This position offers a great salary and benefits, access to state-of-the-art facilities at both universities and the opportunity to benefit from the collaborative cultures of two labs with complementary expertise.
Direct inquiries, CVs and research statements from interested candidates should be sent to Dr. Stavros Lomvardas (email at: [email protected]) and Dr. Vanessa Ruta (email at: [email protected]).
