A position is available for a postdoctoral scientist in the lab of George Mentis (, at the Center for Motor Neuron Biology and Disease (MNC), Department of Neurology at Columbia University.

The successful candidate will build on a recent publication from the Mentis Lab (Chalif et al, Cell, 2022, 185:328-344) and study the molecular, cellular and neuronal circuit mechanisms involved in locomotor behavior with emphasis on the ventral spinocerebellar tract (VSCT) neurons. The study will involve a multidisciplinary approach, involving mouse genetics, behavioral in vivo assays, physiological techniques - including patch clamp and EMG recordings – and anatomical investigations using confocal microscopy. Candidates with a recent PhD (or at the late stage of their PhD) in Neuroscience or Physiology with a solid training in physiology are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Motor Neuron Center (MNC) at Columbia University ( brings together over 40 basic and clinical research groups working on different aspects of motor neuron biology and disease.
