Open Positions

Postdoctoral Fellow in Systems/Computational Neuroscience
New York University School of Medicine
New York, NY

Applications are now being accepted for a postdoctoral fellow position to combine computational and experimental techniques to study the neural mechanism of memory coding during sleep in rodent hippocampal-neocortical circuits.  The applicant will work closely with Dr. Zhe (Sage) Chen at the New York University School of Medicine and Professor Matt Wilson at MIT, with cross-disciplinary training in computational and systems (experimental) neuroscience, including rodent behavior, electrophysiology and brain-machine interface. The applicant will have great opportunities to interact with a large and growing neuroscience community at the NYU campus, including the Neuroscience Institute, Center for Neural Science, Department of Neuroscience & Physiology, and Department of Psychiatry. This position is available from August 2018, and will be funded by the NIMH for 5 years.
 
Applications must have a PhD degree in Neuroscience, Engineering (Biomedical or Electrical), Statistics, Physics, or a related discipline. The desired applicant is expected to be highly motivated and work independently as well as cooperatively with other colleagues in the research projects. Ability to learn new techniques and resolve new research challenges is essential. Previous training in some areas, such as neural data analysis, computational neuronal modeling, computer programming (MATLAB/Python/C), neural interfaces, optogenetics, in vivo neural recordings at the system levels, is preferred. Research experience with rodent neural circuits is a plus.
 
To apply, please send an email along with (i) curriculum vitate; (ii) a cover letter describing research accomplishments and interests; (iii) the names and contact information of two to three references to:  Dr. Zhe (Sage) Chen (zhe.chen@nyulangone.org) with a subject line “Postdoc application”.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Closed-Loop Neuromodulation for Chronic Pain
New York University School of Medicine
New York, NY
