A Computational Approach to Neurobiology

The Center for Theoretical Neuroscience was established at Columbia University in New York City in 2004. We are excited to bring our varied theoretical approaches together (please click on the "people" link to learn more about the work we each do). We interact closely with the many experimental neuroscientists here at Columbia and elsewhere in New York City and also with other theoretical biologists here and with long-term visitors to our center. We believe we have one of the most exciting and interactive environments anywhere for bringing theoretical approaches to Neuroscience.

In Fall of 2016 we, along with a large group of experimental neuroscientists, will be moving to a new neuroscience building on Columbia's new Manhattanville campus, the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, as part of the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute.

We are currently accepting applications for post-doc positions.

The Center for Theoretical Neuroscience is supported by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, the Swartz Foundation, and the Kavli Institute for Brain Science at Columbia University.
