Dear colleagues

Applications are now being accepted for a postdoctoral fellow position to combine experimental, computational and engineering techniques to study neural mechanisms of central pain circuits using rodent models.  The applicant will work closely with Dr. Zhe (Sage) Chen and Dr. Jing Wang at the New York University School of Medicine, with cross-disciplinary training in computational neuroscience, rodent behavior and electrophysiology, optogenetics, and neural engineering (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 (http://neuroscience.med.nyu.edu), Center for Neural Science (http://www.cns.nyu.edu), Department of Neuroscience & Physiology (http://neuro-physio.med.nyu.edu), Department of Psychiatry (http://psych.med.nyu.edu) and Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative Care and Pain Medicine (http://www.med.nyu.edu/anes/home ). NYU Neuroscience community is also surrounded by other institutions in the greater New York metropolitan area (such as Columbia, Cornell, Rockefeller and Mount Sinai). The postdoc position is available immediately, and will be renewable up to 4 years depending on performance.

Applications must have a PhD degree in 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 all research projects. Ability to learn new techniques and resolve new research challenges is essential. Strong experiences in developing rodent or primate brain-machine interface (BMI) systems are desired. Previous training in animal behavior and optogenetics, in vivo neurophysiological recordings, are preferred but not required. Strong programming skills in C/C++ or hardware implementation experiences are a plus.

To apply, please send an email along with (i) CV (with a complete list of publications); (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.chen3 at nyumc.org<mailto:zhe.chen3 at nyumc.org>) with a subject line “Postdoc application”.
