The institute receives ample annual funding from multiple sources, including the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Education of China; it also offers state-of-the-art research facilities incorporating new technologies, such as behavioral and molecular genetics, 3T fMRI, multielectrode recordings in awake behaving monkeys, optical imaging, TMS and EEG. Well-established PIs recruited overseas form a multidisciplinary research team covering the fields of cognitive neuroscience, psychology, neurobiology, computational neuroscience, information sciences and education.
Dr. Jia Liu (http://psychbrain.bnu.edu.cn/teachcms/liujia.htm) studies the neural mechanism of object recognition and its heritability and experience dependency using multiple approaches such as psychophysics, fMRI and behavioral and molecular genetics. Dr. Wu Li (http://psychbrain.bnu.edu.cn/teachcms/liwu.htm) studies intermediate-level visual processing, including top-down modulation and perceptual learning, in both humans and behaving monkeys.
Candidates should have a doctoral degree related to neuroscience (including cognitive neuroscience and computational neuroscience) or psychology, and should have the ability to design and conduct experiments independently as well as to analyze fMRI or electrophysiological data. Strong computer skills including programming (MATLAB and C) are preferred.
The SKLCNL offers competitive salaries depending on candidates’ previous training and experiences.
If interested, please send a cover letter, a cv, a summary describing research accomplishments and interests, and the names and addresses of three references to Dr. Jia Liu (email@example.com) or Dr. Wu Li (firstname.lastname@example.org).
PhD student position in 3D mobile Computing (fully funded)

Postdoc position in New York (visual cortex plasticity)
We seek a postdoctoral fellow who will work in a new lab starting this fall at the Child Health & Development Institute, Friedman Brain Institute of Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York City. Our lab (PI: Hirofumi Morishita, MD, PhD) uses mouse visual cortex as a model to study experience-dependent brain development to establish novel therapeutic strategies for neurodevelopmental disorders. We take an integrated approach, combining molecular, circuit, and systems level methodologies. Mount Sinai School of Medicine, located at Manhattan, New York City, offers an outstanding environment for a successful postdoctoral career. The school recently established a new institute system that fosters collaborations and expanding environment for neuroscientists across departments.
Qualifications: PhD in neuroscience or related field required. Past experience in vivo extracellular recording in visual cortex strongly preferred. Programming (MATLAB) experience is desirable. Experience with virus, optogenetics, psychophysics is a plus. Must be someone who shares the laboratory’s enthusiasm for understanding critical period brain development.
