We seek candidates who have a keen interest in linking macroscopic observations of the brain from psychology to molecular characteristics of the brain from biochemistry. Successful candidates will develop novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods with a focus on linking the receptor level to macroscopic brain networks. The goal will be to both to develop imaging techniques, (MRI and potentially PET in the future), which translate from animals to humans, and also, working with collaborators at iHuman, to guide drug development through better understanding psychological disease mechanisms.
Ideal candidates would also be highly motivated to challenge existing models of large‐scale activations in the brain by advancing the understanding of underlying mechanisms on a neural, metabolic, and molecular level.
Qualifications and responsibilities are as follows:
1. PhD with graduate‐level experience relevant to brain MRI or systems neuroscience.
2. Publication record in peer‐reviewed journals is required. Published work in preclinical MRI will be preferred. Candidates with strong evidence of collaboration across multiple fields will be preferred.
3. Successful candidates will design and conduct experiments, and present their results at scientific conferences.
4. Successful candidates must be proficient in English communication, and are expected to author, coauthor, review, and edit English‐language research manuscripts.
5. We offer an internationally competitive salary and benefits for our postdoctoral associates at ShanghaiTech University.
