The newly formed NYU Neuroscience Institute at the NYU Langone Medical Center is seeking full time Assistant or Associate Professors to join its research and training programs examining neural systems by various approaches. The successful candidates will become part of a collaborative enterprise of neuroscientists distributed across the NYU School of Medicine and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, including the faculty at the Nathan Kline Institute and the Center for Neural Science. A PhD in Biological Sciences is preferred. The Institute encompasses an interactive research community with a wide range of neuroscience disciplines including developmental genetics, molecular, systems, behavioral, and clinical neuroscience. Further information about the Institute can be found at our web site http://neuroscience.med.nyu.edu/.
Interested and qualified candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, and names, addresses, emails and phone numbers of three references in one PDF to: Andrea Hines - Executive Assistant to the Director - Email: email@example.com. We are an equal opportunity employer.
There are no openings for new technicians at this time.
Laboratory of Dayu Lin
We are currently seeking to fill one to two postdoctoral positions to study the neural circuits underlying mouse social behaviors. Projects will involve in vivo electrophysiological recording, viral-mediated functional manipulation and mouse behavioral assays. Potential candidates must be highly self-motivated and enthusiastic about taking on new challenges. Preferred candidates should have experiences in electrophysiology, data analysis and mouse behavioral assays. Candidates with strong background in other fields (e.g. molecular biology, physics or mathematics) who are interested in understanding brain circuits are also welcome to apply. Interested candidates should send their resume/CV and the names and contact information of 2-3 references to Dayu Lin.
Laboratory of Michael Long
We are currently seeking to fill one postdoctoral position to study the neural circuits underlying precise motor timing in the song control pathway of the zebra finch. Projects will involve electrophysiology (both in vitro and in vivo) and behavioral analysis as well as the possibility of adopting molecular and/or florescence imaging approaches. Talented, creative, and motivated individuals are invited to join the team. Interested candidates should send their resume/CV and the names and contact information of 2-3 references to Michael Long.
Laboratory of Robert Froemke
We are always looking for talented and creative postdocs with electrophysiology experience. But regardless of your background or expertise, feel free to contact us about a potential position at NYU. Please email.
Laboratory of Dmitry Rinberg
Postdoctoral positions are available in the Rinberg lab at the NYU Neuroscience Institute. The lab is using electrophysiology, optogenetics,and psychophysics to understand the principles of the sensory information processing. Specifically, we are focused on two questions: 1) how is odor information coded in the brain of the awake, behaving mouse? and 2) how is information relevant to animal behavior extracted by the brain? Postdoctoral researchers engage in both experimental and computational studies of multineuronal coding in awake, behaving mice. These include, but are not limited to measurement and analysis of electrophysiological signals from olfactory bulb and olfactory cortices, olfactory psychophysical experiments, developing of optogenetic approaches, and combination of imaging with electrophysiological methods. Interested candidates should send their resume/CV and three reference letters to Dmitry Rinberg.
There are no openings for new staff members at this time.
