Zhejiang University Interdisciplinary Institute of Neuroscience and Technology (ZIINT, www.ziint.zju.edu.cn) seeks faculty candidates for study of cortical organization and development, using 2-photon and 3-photon instruments. Competitive candidates will have strong optical and engineering background and a strong research program. Any of the following qualities will be considered a plus: 2-photon or multi-photon experience, optical engineering background, understanding of primate brain circuitry and/or cortical development, strong quantitative and analytical skills, and demonstrated ability to integrate multiple technologies. Faculty at ZIINT are highly interactive and participate in collaborative projects within the institute and with other departments on topics of neuroscience, brain-machine interface, medicine, and artificial intelligence. Faculty candidates at both junior or senior levels will be considered. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.
Zhejiang University’s Interdisciplinary Institute of Neuroscience & Technology (ziint.zju.edu.cn/en/index.asp) is home to 15 labs, an MRI center for human and nonhuman primate research, coil making facility, nonhuman primate facility, multi-photon and high throughput microscopy, computer cluster, and viral vector core. The institute has two Bruker systems (2-photon with SLM capability and a 3-photon). ZIINT fosters an environment of exciting collaborative and interdisciplinary interaction. English is the common language; lectures and seminars are given in English. Students at ZIINT are topnotch, lead weekly journal clubs, invite international speakers, and attend international conferences. There is strong support for postdoctoral fellows. ZIINT organizes international conferences and workshops (e.g. Frontiers in Neuroscience and Technology (FINT), Asia-Pacific Symposium on Advances in Ultrahigh Field MRI).
Zhejiang University is located in Hangzhou, China, an hour by bullet train from Shanghai. Home to beautiful West Lake, Hangzhou is both a modern and a historical city, with an emphasis on culture and environment. Direct flights to Hangzhou are available from LAX, Amsterdam, and multiple cities in Asia.
Interested candidates should send a CV, names of 3 references, and a statement of research interests to Dr. Anna Wang Roe at email@example.com.
