Columbia University’s Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute (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 is the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia’s new Manhattanville campus. Situated in the heart of Manhattan, the Zuckerman Institute will house over 40 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.
The Maniatis lab within the Zuckerman Institute seeks an Associate Research Scientist (ARS) to facilitate research investigating the role of autophagy in ALSdisease mechanisms. Candidates with expertise in multidisciplinary approaches including molecular genetics, mouse genetics, genomic methods, bioinformatics and familiarity with neurodegenerative diseases are encouraged to apply.

About The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University in the City of NY
Located within the Jerome L. Greene Science Center in the rising Manhattanville campus of Columbia University, the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute is comprised of world-renowned scientists, bringing together psychologists, engineers, and brain scientists, with the goal of understanding the complexities of mind and brain.
The Institute supports interdisciplinary neuroscience research and discovery by scholars across the university and promises to be the most comprehensive institute for brain science. The Institute will also foster programming events with a focus on the community. Such programs will communicate what we currently know, and what we hope to someday know, about the brain. The intention of the Institute is to spark a scientific and creative pursuit in the next generation of scientists—and people of all ages.
