Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University in the City of New York, USA
The Gogos lab, a member of the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University in the City of New York (https://zuckermaninstitute.columbia.edu/), is seeking to hire two (2) talented postdoctoral research scientists.
In the Gogos lab, we explore the molecular, cellular, synaptic and circuit basis of psychiatric disorders, with emphasis on schizophrenia, taking advantage of model systems (mouse models, human cell lines) founded upon solid human genetics findings. Additionally, we work to translate fundamental discoveries to better preventive and therapeutic approaches. We are looking for outstanding scientists who have a strong background in a neuroscience-related discipline to join our laboratory as part of ongoing projects, including collaborative projects with other labs at the Zuckerman Institute.
Applicants with expertise in areas ranging from genome engineering, chromatin biology, behavioral /pharmacological experimentation, in vivo electrophysiology and imaging, to neural circuit manipulation are encouraged to apply. Strong communication and critical thinking skills, as well as a dedication to teamwork and collaboration are qualities sought after.
If you are interested in joining our lab, please send your CV with a brief description of your current research, as well as 2-3 contacts for references, to firstname.lastname@example.org.

About The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute
Located within the Jerome L. Greene Science Center in the rising Manhattanville campus of Columbia University, the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute is comprised of world-renowned scientists, bringing together psychologists, engineers, and brain scientists, with the goal of understanding the complexities of mind and brain.
The Institute supports interdisciplinary neuroscience research and discovery by scholars across the university and promises to be the most comprehensive institute for brain science. The Institute will also foster programming events with a focus on the community. Such programs will communicate what we currently know, and what we hope to someday know, about the brain. The intention of the Institute is to spark a scientific and creative pursuit in the next generation of scientists—and people of all ages.
