The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University brings together researchers from different scientific disciplines to transform our understanding of the mind and brain. In this highly interactive research environment, laboratories work together to gain critical insights into human health by exploring how the brain develops, performs, endures and recovers. The Zuckerman Institute is housed in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, an architectural masterpiece on Columbia University’s new Manhattanville campus.
The Zuckerman Institute seeks to hire an Associate Research Scientist (ARS) focusing on the role of the cerebellum in higher cognitive functions. In particular, exploring the correlation between the activity of single neurons in the cortex of the cerebellum and the process of learning new arbitrary visuomotor associations.

About Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University in the City of New York
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.
