Successful candidates will join a dynamic and collaborative community of neuroscientists at the Neuroscience Institute as well as in other basic and clinical departments at the School of Medicine and the Faculty of Arts and Science. We will consider applications in all areas of neuroscience but are especially interested in candidates investigating fundamental questions of molecular, cellular, and developmental neurobiology, including those with mechanistic or translational implications for disease.

The Neuroscience Institute encompasses an outstanding, interactive research community with research programs that span development, genetics, molecular and cellular neurobiology, sensation, perception, cognition, and behavior. Bench-to-bedside interests include movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, neurodegeneration, developmental and psychiatric diseases, and epilepsy. The Institute also boasts a thriving cross-campus graduate program, a rich array of scientific seminars and events, and strong connections to clinical departments.

Candidates must hold a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree and are expected to have a strong track record of research achievements using state-of-the-art experimental approaches. To apply, submit the following application components: (1) a cover letter that includes a description of your most significant research accomplishment(s), (2) your curriculum vitae, (3) a concise research statement no more than three 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, and (4) names and contact information for three referees to receive Interfolio requests for letters of recommendation, and one (or more) first-author primary research publication or manuscript. All application materials should be submitted electronically to apply.interfolio.com/39017.
