The laboratory of Dr. Herbert Zheng Wu in the Department of Neuroscience at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has an exciting opportunity for a motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to join our team. The postdoctoral fellow will lead independent projects to investigate the neurobiology of decision making in mice. 

The Wu Laboratory is interested in how decision making is flexibly modulated by the animal’s experience, internal state, and social context. How do hard-wired and learned circuits coordinate to permit cognitive flexibility? How do animals make decisions in complex social interactions? And how are these processes disrupted by neuropsychiatric disorders? To understand these questions, our lab will apply a variety of methodologies including imaging, electrophysiology, optogenetics, single-cell omics, quantitative behavioral analysis, and computational modeling. Please visit our website to learn more about our research:

You should be highly motivated, critical, inquisitive and have excellent communication skills. The candidate should have a recent Ph.D or M.D/Ph.D in a relevant field including but not limited to neuroscience, biology, psychology, and biomedical engineering. A strong skillset in circuit or systems neuroscience is expected. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience in calcium imaging, large-scale electrophysiology, and/or quantitative analysis of neural data.

You can expect the PI to have a sincere interest in your work and support you at every stage of your career. We will help you realize your potential, do meaningful and fun science with the team, and develop a vision as an independent scientist. You will join a vibrant neuroscience community at Mount Sinai and will have opportunities to interact with a broad network of neuroscientists in the New York City. We will provide a competitive salary as well as housing and health benefits.

To apply, please send a cover letter, your CV and the contact information of three referees to Thank you for your interest in joining our team.
