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.
The Zhejiang University Interdisciplinary Institute of Neuroscience and Technology (ZIINT) is seeking faculty in systems neuroscience. ZIINT is a new center established at Zhejiang University to foster interdisciplinary interactions between neuroscience and other disciplines. This center will house 20 laboratories, a non-human primate facility, imaging center(3T and 7T machines) for both human and animal work, two-photon and microscopy facility, computing cluster, machine shop, and histological services.
Positions will be filled at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor levels. Faculty research interests may include, but are not limited to, sensory and motor systems, cognition and decision making, emotional and social behavior, and development. We seek in particular candidates with strengths in non-human primate work, modern neurophysiological methods, computational neuroscience, molecular anatomical and viral techniques, neuroimaging, and neurotechnology. Successful candidates will have a strong publication record, excellent funding potential, and exceptional interest in collaborative, interdisciplinary efforts. Salaries and startup packages are competitive.
Philosophy: The future of brain science lies with integration of approaches from other scientific realms. Zhejiang's engineering strengths include biomedical engineering, optical engineering, nanotechnology, materials science, information sciences, and robotics. Zhejiang University's world-class medical school features cutting edge research in cellular and molecular neuroscience. Translational efforts are supported by the Center for Translational Medicine and close ties with leading hospitals. Student quality is top notch. Zhejiang is an environment where diverse disciplines readily cross-foster.
