洛克菲勒大学（The Rockefeller University），是一所世界顶尖的生物医学教育研究中心。该校位于美国纽约，前身为洛克菲勒医学研究所，由美国石油大王约翰·洛克菲勒捐资建立。洛克菲勒大学是现代细胞生物学的起源地之一，在这里，科学家首次发现血型，DNA是一种遗传物质，以及病毒可导致癌症。洛克菲勒大学未设置任何院系，仅由75个独立的实验室构成。截至2021年，洛克菲勒大学在生理学或医学、化学领域拥有38位诺贝尔奖获得者（校友及教职工），是世界上在生物医学领域拥有诺贝尔奖最多的机构。如果它是一个国家，它在生物医学领域的诺贝尔奖获得者数将仅次于美国、英国和德国。洛克菲勒大学是世界上人均诺贝尔奖获得者数最多的研究机构。

We are pleased to announce a unique opportunity, the opening of a postdoctoral position in the Laboratory of Neural Systems at The Rockefeller University that is part of the BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network (BICAN). The consortium, headed by the Allen Institute, aims to uncover the genetic underpinnings of functionally specific brain circuits in the non-human primate and human brain. The postdoc position comes with the opportunity to do transformative work in a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary setting of scientific excellence. We will work closely with other laboratories on functional and structural specializations of the marmoset, macaque, and human brain and on the genetic analyses of brain tissue.
We seek applications from highly talented individuals with advanced graduate training in non-human primate neuroscience and a track record of scientific excellence who are excited by the opportunity to uncover the genetic specificity if functionally specific brain circuits. Motivation, enthusiasm, ambition, general qualities as a scientist and person, and a genuine interest in the project are highly valued. The postdoc will characterize multiple functional specializations across the macaque monkey brain. All aspects of the work will be supported by a Research Assistant, to be hired jointly by the PI and the postdoc, working on the project fulltime. The project will provide unique training opportunities in imaging neuroscience, genetic analyses of neural tissue, and the neural basis of cognition.
The Laboratory for Neural Systems works towards uncovering the neural mechanisms of cognition, primarily in the domain of social cognition, including mechanisms of perception, memory, emotion, cognition, and action. It is part of the Price Family Center for the Social Brain, the strong neuroscience community of The Rockefeller University, and is engaged in multiple collaborative research programs with multiple institutions, nationally, and internationally.
Interested individuals should send their CV, a statement of interest and vision, and the names of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
