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.
The Zuckerman Institute seeks to hire an Associate Research Scientist (ARS) focusing on the role of the cerebellum in higher cognitive functions. In particular, exploring the correlation between the activity of single neurons in the cortex of the cerebellum and the process of learning new arbitrary visuomotor associations.
