Higher Cognitive Functions Lab (PI: Hisashi Tanigawa, PhD) are currently seeking a postdoctoral fellow with a strong background in animal models of electrophysiology, who will conduct recoding neuronal activities using Electrocorticography (ECoG), Multi-electrode array (MEA), and Intrinsic Signal Optical Imaging (ISOI) from behaving monkeys’ cerebral cortex. The principal research goals include understanding of neural mechanisms underlying higher cognitive functions, including object recognition, attention, working memory, and long-term memory, and development of brain-machine interface (BMI) for such cognitive functions, in the macaque monkey cerebral cortex. The successful candidate is going to use our 256-channel TDT electrophysiology system (https://www.tdt.com/systems/neurophysiology-systems/)

A suitable candidate will have experience in electrophysical and animal experiments, and a background in neurobiology/neuroscience. Basic programming skills (Matlab) are required. Experience in behaving monkey experiments and/or TDT electrophysiology system will be helpful, but not necessary. The candidate must be able to communicate in English (oral and written) and be willing to work with students and PhD students.
Salary and benefits are set according to the national and Zhejiang University regulations for postdoctoral fellows. The annual salary is generally 200,000-300,000 RMB, depending on your ability and experience. We will pay an additional bonus according to your performance. An apartment on the campus is available at a special price.
Interested candidates should send a CV, contact information of two references, and a statement of research interests (1 page) to Dr. Hisashi Tanigawa at email@example.com.
