The Department of Neuroscience, the Department of Statistics, and the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University invite applications for two tenure-track positions at the assistant or associate professor level, to begin in 2018. One position will focus on theoretical neuroscience with an appointment in the Department of Neuroscience. The other position will focus on the application of statistics to neuroscience with an appointment in the Department of Statistics. Both positions will include appointments as well as office and laboratory space in the Theory Center and Grossman Center of the Statistics of Mind within the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute housed in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center at Columbia.

We are seeking dynamic scientists interested in exploiting the multidisciplinary environment provided by the Zuckerman Institute and interacting with Zuckerman Institute faculty, as well as with others in the Columbia neuroscience, biological sciences, physical sciences, statistics, and machine learning communities, including the Data Science Institute.

The Zuckerman Institute brings together scientists from diverse backgrounds whose research focuses on brain function, wiring, and development. Zuckerman Institute faculty will function as full members of their home departments, and tenure will be granted by the home department.

Candidates will be expected to show expertise and an ability to lead a research program in theoretical and/or statistical neuroscience. Applicants are expected to have a strong record of scientific achievement and to demonstrate the ability to engage in innovative research and teaching. Applicants should hold a PhD in neuroscience, statistics, or a related area.

Candidates will contribute to teaching in their home departments and the Zuckerman Institute.
