Postdoc position in the Systems Neuroscience division of the department of Psychiatry at Columbia University. Seeking a highly motivated individual interested in using cellular and systems neuroscience approaches to study brain functions relevant to mental illness. A major focus is understanding how stressful experiences produce persistent changes in the brain in mice over the life span at molecular, cellular, circuit, and behavioral levels. Experience with stereotaxic surgery, behavior, and familiarity with pharmaco/opto-genetic and/or in vivo imaging/photometry approaches a plus. Cell biology and anatomy experience is also welcome. 1-2 positions are open in a highly collaborative interdisciplinary environment. Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three professional references to email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

About Columbia University
Columbia University is one of the largest Neuroscience Centers in the US. There are numerous clinical and basic departments as well as interdisciplinary research centers all comprising a geographically concentrated neuroscience research community. The community supports rich opportunities for personal enrichment and career development in the neurosciences that all supplement the individual lab experience. Within this community the department of psychiatry has a large collaborative basic science research program focusing on the neurobiology of mental illness on molecular, cellular, circuit, and systems levels. Diverse patient populations allow for easy collaboration between basic and clinical neuroscientists.
