We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on motor learning and electric brain stimulation. The ideal candidate has experience with in-vivo electrophysiology in rodents, or rodent behavior. Funding is guaranteed for 5 years through an NIH grant. The projects is a wonderful collaboration with the Martin Lab, which has ample experience with the mechanims of motor learning and associated experimental techniques (motor learning, electrophysiology, cellular imaging, etc). More information available here.
Currently we are looking for a fellow with strong computational skills, who is interested in the brain. The work is at the intersection of machine learning and neuroscience. You may analyze neural sinals using AI tools, or you may develop AI tools inspired by what we know of the brain. There are several projects related to how we experience natural stimili on real life.
We are currently looking for PhD candidates in the same two areas listed above for postdocs (electrophysiology and computational neuroscience). Application deadline for Fall 2023 have passed, but you can reach out per email until May. After that, you can apply in the winter semester for a Fall 2024 start to either the Biomedical Engineering or Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience programs. Email your CV prior to application to determine if we are looking for someone with your profile and interests. We provide full financial support.
Students wanting an internship in the lab need to have strong GPA, a minimum of 12h per week and can in principle commit to 12 months if they like the project. Some programming experience is a must.
CCNY or CUNY students wanting to do their M.S. thesis research in the lab have to commit to a 12 months research project and should have a quantitative background, or should have taken graduate courses similar to these courses.
To do a Diploma or MS thesis with your home institution as an intern in this lab, you have to commit to at least 6 months and have your own financial support. We select a project that is of interest to you and assist with the J1 visa. Strong programming experience is a must.
