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 (https://shanghai.nyu.edu/research/brain). The overarching goal of our research program is to elucidate 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 and subcortical regions while subjects perform economic choice tasks.
Qualified applicants are expected to hold a PhD in neuroscience, biological sciences, or related discipline with a strong background in system/ cognitive neuroscience and/or biomedical engineering. Prior experience with in vivo neurophysiology and animal behavioral training is highly preferred. Strong quantitative skills would be a plus.
Our laboratory is part of the Shanghai Neuroeconomics Collective (www.shanghai-neuroeconomics.org) - a vibrant and growing neuroeconomic research community in Asia and the Pacific. We provide top-notch interdisciplinary training in systems neuroscience and a highly competitive compensation package.
To be considered, applicants should email a CV and the name and contact information of two references to Dr. Xinying Cai ([email protected]). Applications will be reviewed as received.
