Columbia University’s Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute (the Zuckerman Institute) brings together world-class researchers from varied scientific disciplines to explore aspects of mind and brain, through the exchange of ideas and active collaboration. The Zuckerman Institute’s home, the Jerome L. Greene Science Center is a state-of-the-art facility on Columbia’s new Manhattanville campus. Situated in the heart of Manhattan in New York City, the Zuckerman Institute houses over 50 laboratories employing a broad range of interdisciplinary approaches to transform our understanding of the mind and brain. In this highly collaborative environment, experimental, computational, and theoretical labs work together to gain critical insights into how the brain develops, performs, endures and recovers.
The El-Shamayleh Lab within the Zuckerman Institute seeks a postdoctoral scientist to investigate the neural basis of primate vision, using a powerful combination of neurophysiological and optogenetic techniques. Exceptionally motivated candidates with rigorous training in neuroscience (or a closely related STEM field) and demonstrated aptitude for independent research are invited to apply. The ideal candidate will have prior experience in studying primate neurophysiology and behavior, and will possess strong analytical and programming skills (Matlab/Python).
PhD in neuroscience or closely related STEM field.
