Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute and Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons are currently recruiting outstanding scientists, preferentially at the Assistant Professor tenure-track level (https://zuckermaninstitute.columbia.edu/https://www.ps.columbia.edu/). We are seeking candidates from diverse background who have demonstrated exceptional ability, creativity and productivity. Appropriate departmental affiliation will be decided after selection. Generous start-up funds, space, and mentorship will be provided. Research labs will be housed in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia’s new Manhattanville campus. 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 and/or emotional processes; and 4) emerging issues in molecular, cellular, and developmental neuroscience in health and disease.
Columbia's Zuckerman Institute was created with the premise that a deeper understanding of the brain and mind has the power to transform science and society. The Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons is a world leading medical school dedicated to research excellence, and Columbia University has an exceptionally strong and broad program in neuroscience with interactions between disciplines.
Applications received by November 22, 2019 will receive full consideration. Please submit applications online at here. Please include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and arrange for three references to submit letters of recommendation.
Columbia University takes affirmative action to ensure equal opportunity.

About Columbia University Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute
Columbia University's Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute (the 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, at full capacity the Zuckerman Institute houses more than 47 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.
