Field(s) of Specialization
Position Title Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Department ZUC Zuckerman Institute
Division Zuckerman Institute
Location Morningside
Summary Description
Minimum Degree Required

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.
A laboratory within the Zuckerman Institute seeks a postdoctoral scientist to perform research using in vivo extracellular recordings and/or calcium imaging of hippocampal neuron activity in awake behaving mice. The laboratory examines how neural activity in the CA2 region of the hippocampus contributes to social memory and other social behaviors, and how dysfunction in this region contributes to abnormal social behavior in neuropsychiatric disorders. The applicant should ideally have expertise performing in vivo two-photon light microscopic imaging and/or extracellular electrophysiology to track activity of populations of neurons during behavior. Experience in performing intracellular patch clamp recordings in ex vivo brain slices will also be of value. Strong computational skills, including programming in Python or Matlab, as well as superior motivation, drive and demonstrated aptitude for carrying out independent research are further important qualifications.

Minimum Qualifications

PhD, or doctorate in related field

Preferred Qualifications

Strong candidates will be interested and focused on interdisciplinary work.
