Columbia University Irving Medical Center

Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) is a clinical, research, and educational enterprise located on a campus in northern Manhattan. We are home to four professional colleges and schools that provide global leadership in scientific research, health and medical education, and patient care, including:

  • Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons
  • College of Dental Medicine
  • School of Nursing
  • Mailman School of Public Health

Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) is a leader in providing comprehensive patient care and offers a range of general and specialized medical, dental, and nursing services. We have more than 1,800 physicians, surgeons, dentists, and nurses in locations throughout the New York City metro area.

Founded in 1767, Columbia’s Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons was the first school in the United States to award the MD degree and its legacy of innovation continues. In 2018, it became the first medical school in the nation to replace student loans with scholarships for all students who qualify for financial aid. At the heart of medical education is the 100,000-square-foot, 14-floor Vagelos Education Center with a simulation center, anatomy lab, and classroom and study spaces. Faculty are among the best-funded researchers in American medical schools, and for eight consecutive years, the college’s grant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has outpaced growth of the NIH budget.

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery seeks a Postdoctoral Research Scientist to study paired brain and spinal cord electrical stimulation to promote recovery of movement following central nervous system injury. The project employs electrophysiology to test hypotheses about how to strengthen sensorimotor integration in the spinal cord. We are also developing and testing a closed loop system for applying spinal cord stimulation based on levels of brain activity from movement intent. The successful applicant will be motivated to understand the systems-level mechanisms of a powerful neuromodulation paradigm developed recently in the laboratory. In addition, the project involves viral manipulation of neural circuits, anatomical tracing imaged with tissue clearing, and novel assays of skilled forelimb function. These and many other skills and cutting-edge techniques will be taught to the successful candidate. The scientist will join a dynamic and growing group of 9 investigators in the...
