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 will be the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia's new Manhattanville campus. Situated in the heart of Manhattan, at full capacity the Zuckerman Institute will house approximately 47 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.

A lab within the Zuckerman Institute seeks an Associate Research Scientist (ARS) to conduct research focusing on the development of deep neural network models of visual processing and methods for visualization of high-dimensional data. The ideal candidate will have neuroscientific and computational expertise, in particular on visually guided behavior in primates and biologically motivated computational modeling. Creativity, drive, and a demonstrated aptitude for research are further essential qualities for this position.
