Postdoctoral Position in Primate Social Neuroscience at Yale University

We are hiring a new Postdoctoral Associate to be engaged in non-human primate social neuroscience research in the Chang lab at Yale University (

Applicants with the following skills are particularly encouraged to apply: (a) research background in systems or cognitive neuroscience, (b) expertise in electrophysiology in behaving animals, and/or (c) highly quantitative data analytic skills, which may include computational modeling. This postdoctoral associate will carry out multi-channel, multi-area, electrophysiological recordings while pairs of non-human primates are engaged in social interactions. This individual will be required to generate electrophysiological data, perform high-level data analyses, and learn to perform necessary surgeries required for our research. This individual will also lead a team within the lab to propel the research in a collaborative environment.

Candidates will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled. We will try our best to accommodate candidate’s schedule.
