Postdoctoral Researcher Vacancies in the Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Neuroimaging (MR bioimaging)


The Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology (CEBSIT, formerly known as the Institute of Neuroscience (ION) is a cross-disciplinary, multi-institutional organization that aims to consolidate existing research strength of CAS laboratories via the formation of collaborative research teams. These teams will address major frontier questions in brain science, as well as in intelligence technology that involves brain-inspired computing methods and devices. The newly established International Center for Primate Brain Research (ICPBR) is affiliated to the CEBSIT and aims to be one of the world-class brain research institution, co-directed by Dr. Mu-ming Poo and Dr. Nikos Logothetis. 

The Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Neuroimaging (Principal Investigator / PI: Dr. Goran Angelovski) of the ICPBR is seeking for postdoctoral researchers to perform research in the field of molecular fMRI. Dr. Angelovski studies the brain function through establishment of a novel neuroimaging technique that employs bioresponsive MRI contrast agents. To this end, the lab uses various chemical, biochemical and biological approaches in developing methods to visualize biological processes in brain in a functional manner.
