Other relevant job opportunities


Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroscience

Dr. Haiyan He’s lab in the Department of Biology at Georgetown University is seeking a highly motivated postdoc fellow interested in neuroscience research.

Successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on a NIH-funded study to investigate novel mechanisms underlying activity-dependent proteostasis in neurons. Postdoc fellow salary and benefit will be set commensurate with their experience and qualification according to NIH guidelines. They will also benefit from the thriving and collegial research environment, interdisciplinary collaborations, excellent career development workshops, and state-of-art core research facilities at Georgetown University as well as its Medical Center.

Postdocs and PhDs at The Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience

Zong lab and Moser lab are jointly recruiting six PhD's or Postdocs in computationally guided experimental neural-networks neuroscience. 

The positions will be associated with the research group of May-Britt and Edvard Moser, with the research group of Weijian Zong, or both (on collaborative work). Positions in the Moser lab use Neuropixels probes or two-photon miniscopes to understand neural population coding in entorhinal-hippocampal systems. Positions in the Zong group use two-photon miniscopes and will further develop this technology.

For postdoctoral positions:

  • You must have completed a Norwegian doctoral degree or corresponding foreign doctoral degree recognized as equivalent to a Norwegian PhD in neuroscience, psychology, biology or medicine, computational science, physics, mathematics or equivalent.
  • If you can document that the PhD thesis has been submitted, your application can be assessed even if you have not yet defended your dissertation. Documentation of the obtained doctoral degree must be presented before you can take up the position.
  • You must have track record of paper writing (papers published or on preprint servers, with author contributions specified, or alternatively indicated in reference letters).
  • If, for any reason, you have taken a career break or have had an atypical career and wish to disclose this in your application, the selection committee will take this into account, recognizing that the quantity of your research may be reduced as a result.

For PhD positions:

  • Completion of a master’s degree or equivalent, with a strong academic background in the same subjects as for the postdoc position, with a grade of B or better in terms of NTNU’s grading scale.
  • For the position in the Zong group, a background in engineering will be similarly relevant.
  • Applicants with master’s degrees not approved as equivalent to a Norwegian degree may be offered the opportunity to take missing courses to obtain an equivalent degree; however, further recruitment will depend on a grade of B or better on the Norwegian equivalent.
