Assistant Professor

The Neuroscience Institute at NYU Langone Medical Center seeks applicants for a full time tenure-track Assistant Professor to become part of a collaborative community of neuroscientists that includes the NYU School of Medicine and the Faculty of Arts and Science. The successful applicant would become a member of the Neuroscience Institute. The ideal candidate will work on research questions in the areas of molecular and cellular neuroscience. An interest in the mechanisms of nervous system disorders is desirable but not essential. A PhD or equivalent degree is required.

The Institute encompasses an interactive research community with a wide range of neuroscience interests, including developmental genetics, molecular and cellular neurobiology, sensory and motor systems, behavioral neuroscience, and translational approaches; and supports a thriving cross-campus graduate program.

To apply, click on our survey link, fill out your information, and submit a single PDF including: (1) a cover letter that includes a description of your most significant research accomplishment(s), (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) a research statement no more than four pages in length that describes your (a) goals/vision for a research program at NYU Langone and (b) experience and qualifications that make you particularly well-suited to achieve those goals. Please provide the names and contact information for three professional references. The referees should submit their letters of reference via the email address provided in the survey. Applications without referee letters will be considered incomplete.

Applications must be received by December 1, 2015 and review of applications will begin in early November. Women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. We are an equal opportunity employer.


Laboratory of Biyu He

A post-doctoral position is available starting in January 2016, in Dr. Biyu Jade He’s laboratory at the Neuroscience Institute and Departments of Neurology, Neuroscience and Physiology, and Radiology at NYU Langone Medical Center, New York University. Our research focus is on understanding the neural bases of perceptual awareness using a combination of multimodal imaging in humans and computational neuroscience approaches. In addition, we actively seek applications of our research in neurological and psychiatric medicine.

The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in a specialty related to MRI/fMRI, MEG, EEG, ECoG, brain stimulation and/or computational neuroscience, should be able to work independently and have good quantitative, analytical and programing skills. Experience in systems, cognitive, and/or computational neuroscience is desirable.

Resources are extensive at NYU Langone Medical Center. Our group has access to 3T and 7T MRI, MEG, human intracranial recordings (ECoG, depth recordings), and TMS. We also have a state-of-the-art EEG/tDCS/psychophysics laboratory with eye-tracking capability. The salary and benefits for the position are highly competitive.

Applicants should send a CV and contact information for three referees to Dr. Biyu J. He (Website:, with subject line “Post-doc application 2015”. Review of applications will be ongoing, starting from October 1st, 2015 until the position is filled. Applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Laboratory of Jayeeta Basu

The Basu lab seeks post-doctoral candidates for positions starting as early as January of 2015 at the NYU Neuroscience Institute. Research in the Basu lab ( lab aims to identify circuit-based mechanisms underlying synaptic integration, plasticity and learning behaviors. The technical expertise of the lab spans somatic and dendritic electrophysiology, two-photon imaging and behavioral analysis in mice. The projects will involve studying neuromodulation, sensory coding and memory formation in cortico-hippocampal circuits. The experiments will utilize functional manipulations of genetically defined long-range projection neurons both in vitro and in vivo.

Candidates should be in the final year or within zero-four years of finishing their terminal degree (PhD or MD/PhD). Individuals with excellent past record of research achievement and expertise in any of the following training backgrounds:1) live cell imaging 2) electrophysiology 3) rodent behavior 4) molecular genetics and 5) computational neuroscience are encouraged to apply. For further information please email Jayeeta Basu (

Laboratory of Einar Sigurdsson

A candidate with a recent Ph.D. degree (zero-three years postdoc experience) and a strong background in research on the biology of antibodies is sought to participate in NIH-funded studies related to Alzheimer’s disease. Creativity, fluent English, and excellent writing skills are desirable.
To apply and for further information, please contact Einar Sigurdsson.

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.
