The Department of Neuroscience and Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University are currently recruiting faculty members at the Assistant Professor level (https://zuckermaninstitute.columbia.edu/). Areas of interest include: 1) genetic, genomic and evolutionary approaches that investigate the neural basis of behavior; 2) use of optical, chemical, electrical or computational methods to link neural circuitry to behavior; 3) computational, behavioral and/or physiological approaches to study cognitive processes; and 4) emerging issues in molecular, cellular, and developmental neuroscience.
Columbia University has an exceptionally strong and broad program in neuroscience that aims to enhance interactions between basic and translational research and to foster collaborations with a range of other disciplines within the University. Research labs will be housed in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia’s new Manhattanville campus.
Columbia University takes affirmative action to ensure equal opportunity.
The application deadline is November 15, 2018. Please submit applications online at http://pa334.peopleadmin.com/postings/1541. Include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and arrange for three references to submit letters of recommendation. Initial interviews will be held February 25-26, 2019. We recommend that candidates reserve those dates pending notification from the search committee.

About Columbia University
Neuroscience research at Columbia has a rich history dating back to the founding of the Neurological Institute in Manhattan in 1909. The Institute moved to Washington Heights as an affiliate of the Columbia University Medical Center in 1929. The Department was founded in 2007 replacing the more broadly based Center for Neurobiology and Behavior.
In 2018, the faculty of the Department of Neuroscience joined other investigators in fulfilling Columbia's vision of a cross-disciplinary axis for research on the science of mind in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center as part of the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute.
