Positions

Fellowships

Postdoctoral positions in computational neuroscience are available in Xiao-Jing Wang’s lab at NYU Shanghai. Our research aims at understanding dynamical behavior and function of neural circuits, with a focus on cognitive processes such as decision-making and working memory (see http://www.cns.nyu.edu/wanglab/). Currently we are developing large-scale circuit models of the global brain for monkey and mouse, in close collaboration with experimentalists who work on mesoscopic connectome and neurophysiology with behaving animals using modern technologies. In addition, we carry out research on training recurrent neural networks to perform many cognitive tasks, at the interface between brain science and artificial intelligence.

A postdoctoral position is available in Xing Tian's lab at NYU Shanghai to work in a collaborative project with Diogo Almeida at NYU Abu Dhabi. Our research program is to investigate the neural bases of speech and language, and other higher order human cognitive functions. In particular, our work is focused on using electrophysiological (MEG/EEG) and neuroimaging (fMRI) techniques in combination with computational approaches to investigate motor-sensory interaction in speech production and perception. This project focuses on the investigation of motor representations in speech perception in the context of working memory and long-term memory.

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in Xinying Cai's lab at NYU-Shanghai as part of the new NYU-ECNU Institute of Brain and Cognitive Science. This person will collaborate with and assist Dr. Cai in research focusing on elucidating the neural underpinnings of economic decision making. In particular, our work is focused on characterizing single neuron activity in the prefrontal cortex and connected cortical regions while subjects perform economic choice tasks.

NYU Shanghai is seeking to fill multiple postdoctoral positions are available starting Sept 1, 2014 in Jeffrey Erlich's lab at NYU Shanghai as part of the new NYU-ECNU Institute of Brain and Cognitive Science. We study the neural basis of cognition using sophisticated behavioral paradigms combined with electrophysiology, pharmacology, ontogenetic and computational / theoretical methods. Qualified candidates should have a Ph.D in neuroscience or other relevant fields (e.g. biology, psychology, physics, math, electrical engineering). Experience with behavioral neurophysiology is preferred. Qualified candidates should be proficient in both written and spoken English; Mandarin fluency preferred but not required, have good interpersonal and communication skills to work in an international and cross-cultural environment; excellent problem solving skills, and good time management skills; high professional integrity, honesty and trust; and be well organized, diplomatic, self-motivated.
