The Mann Lab, a member of the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University in the City of New York, (themannlab.org) has received new funding to conduct research to understand the neural network controlling Drosophila locomotion, in particular walking. The lab is therefore interested in hiring a new postdoctoral researcher. The new postdoc will join a highly interactive lab, which currently has approximately 12 staff members.
Situated in the heart of Manhattan, at full capacity the Zuckerman Institute will house sixty 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 addition to a PhD in biology, the ideal candidate would have experience in animal behavior and/or the neurobiology and genetics of Drosophila. The individual would be able to devote 100% of their time to research. Interested applicants should send their CV and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
