Job description

Columbia University invites applications for postdoctoral research scholar/scientist or associate research scholar/scientist positions to begin July 2022. Interdisciplinary postdoctoral positions are available in the Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience program for researchers who have earned the doctorate, or its equivalent, in either (1) a humanities, arts, or social science discipline – such as psychology, psychiatry, public health, law, history, economics, literature, political science, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, journalism, music and the arts ― and who have extensive acquaintance with, and critical understanding of, neuroscience research; or (2) neuroscience or a related discipline in the natural sciences and who have extensive acquaintance with, and critical understanding of, another discipline in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. 

Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience is an innovative program pioneering interdisciplinary research between neuroscience and the arts, social sciences, and humanities. Each Scholar in this highly selective program has proposed a novel cross-disciplinary research project at the intersection of neuroscience and at least one other field, which they will conduct over the course of the three-year fellowship. Presidential Scholars join a vibrant community of postdoctoral researchers and faculty mentors and affiliates from across Columbia University. 

Review of applications will begin after December 13, 2021, and will continue until the positions are filled. Candidates must hold a doctoral-level degree (PhD, EdD, JD, MD, etc.) by July 1, 2022, and must have received this degree after July 1, 2017. For this application season, PSSN recognizes that there is a growing need for Presidential Scholars who have experience examining questions about diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, and decolonization broadly defined. Priority will be given to applications that align with the program’s diversity, equity, and inclusion goals.
