Presidential Scholars Arrive on Campus


The Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience program welcomes its first cohort of Presidential Scholars. The three incoming postdoctoral scholars were selected from a pool of nearly 100 applicants from a variety of backgrounds and fields of research based on their comprehensive, multidisciplinary knowledge and novel research proposals. The selection process was a cross-disciplinary effort, with 35 faculty members participating in the proposal review and candidate interviews from the Faculty of Arts & Sciences, Columbia University Medical Center, Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, School of Journalism, School for International and Public Affairs, New York State Psychiatric Institute, and Barnard College.
