The Laboratory of Neural Systems at The Rockefeller University, New York, NY, is searching for an outstanding postdoctoral fellow interested in a staff scientist position in the lab. We study the neural basis of social cognition, from face perception to the generation of facial expressions. Our main model organisms are non-human primates, macaques and marmosets, and we use a wide range of experimental approaches, integrated into computational analysis. The lab is embedded in a number of active collaborations. The ideal candidate has a background in non-human primate electrophysiology or fMRI, loves working in the lab, running experiments, and developing new tools, has great quantitative and programming skills, and loves working in a team. The successful candidate would assume a critical position in a highly dynamic, fun, and ambitious research team.
Candidates should have a strong background, including postdoctoral training, in electrophysiology with non-human primates or fMRI, great quantitative and programing skills, and loves interacting with other people. Interested candidates should send a description of their scientific interests and qualifications, their curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three professional references to firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you.

About The Rockefeller University
The Rockefeller University is a world-renowned center for research and graduate education in the biomedical sciences, chemistry, bioinformatics and physics. The university’s 75 laboratories conduct both clinical and basic research and study a diverse range of biological and biomedical problems with the mission of improving the understanding of life for the benefit of humanity.
Founded in 1901 by John D. Rockefeller, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research was the country’s first institution devoted exclusively to biomedical research. The Rockefeller University Hospital was founded in 1910 as the first hospital devoted exclusively to clinical research. In the 1950s, the institute expanded its mission to include graduate education and began training new generations of scientists to become research leaders around the world. In 1965, it was renamed The Rockefeller University.
Since its founding, The Rockefeller University has embraced an open structure to encourage collaboration between disciplines and empower faculty members to take on high-risk, high-reward projects. No formal departments exist, bureaucracy is kept to a minimum and scientists are given resources, support... and unparalleled freedom to follow the science wherever it leads.
This unique approach to science has led to some of the world’s most revolutionary contributions to biology and medicine.
Throughout Rockefeller’s history, 24 of its scientists have won Nobel Prizes, 21 have won Lasker Awards and 20 have garnered the National Medal of Science, the highest science award given by the United States.
