Associate Research Scientist
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.
A lab within the Zuckerman Institute seeks an Associate Research Scientist (ARS) to facilitate research in the development of new analytical techniques to study the process of abstraction in the brain. The ideal candidate should have a strong quantitative background preferably in physics, extensive experience in the analysis of electrophysiological and calcium imaging data, the ability to develop mathematical models of neural circuits and strong programming skills (matlab and python).
MD, PhD, or doctorate in related field
Strong candidates will be interested and focused on interdisciplinary work.
