Principal Investigator in Neuroscience and Brain-inspired Computing
The Chinese Institute for Brain Research, Beijing (CIBR) was established in March 2018 by the Beijing Municipal Government in conjunction with seven research and education institutions in Beijing. Founded as a pillar of the China Brain Initiative, CIBR aims to support a vibrant interdisciplinary program in neuroscience and its related disciplines, with both basic and applied research focused ultimately on improving human health. CIBR also takes responsibility for coordinating research institutes and managing research programs under the guidance of the China Brain Initiative and Beijing Brain Initiative, making Beijing an international epicenter for neuroscience and brain-inspired computational research.
CIBR is now recruiting scientists to lead individual labs and recruiting independent postdoctoral fellows to further their research in a highly innovative and cooperative environment.

THE POSITIONS and BENEFITS
Principal Investigators (PIs)
Applications for PI positions at multiple levels are welcome. PIs are expected to conduct outstanding research in any area of neuroscience or brain-inspired computing.
Qualified PI candidates should have a doctoral degree with appropriate postdoctoral training. Successful candidates are selected based on their scientific qualifications, regardless of age, gender, nationality, or ethnicity. CIBR will actively coordinate with PIs to support their access to relevant national programs.
CIBR provides generous start-up packages, internationally competitive salaries/benefits, and six years of stable funding that is renewable upon successful reviews by our highly accomplished international guiding committee. CIBR is establishing truly state-of-the-art core facilities to enable and support cutting-edge biomedical and computational research and technology development. Moreover, CIBR provides strong administrative support and outstanding graduate and postdoctoral programs. These resources will enable each PI to freely pursue long-term, high impact research projects.
CIBR is currently inviting applications for Research Fellow positions. Fellows will be expected to undertake outstanding research in any area of neuroscience or brain-inspired computing.
Qualified Research Fellow candidates should have obtained their doctoral degree within the past two years. Successful candidates will be selected based on their scientific potential. CIBR provides benefits including funding, research space, senior advisors, and an initial appointment period of 5 years.
We are seeking highly talented, self-motivated, innovative and enthusiastic postdoctoral researchers with a PhD or equivalent scientific competence in neuroscience or a related discipline. The candidate should demonstrate a creative, interdisciplinary approach to solving modern problems in neuroscience, as well as the promise of seeding or promoting sustainable, collaborative links between CIBR faculty research programs, and a commitment to promoting diverse, ideas, perspectives, and voices in our research community.
We will nurture your research career and make you internationally competitive in a highly creative and inspiring environment full of expertise and curiosity. We will also provide you with strong support including training in advanced techniques, highly competitive salary, and numerous perks and benefits.
DOCUMENTS FOR APPLICATION
Applicants for PI and Research Fellow positions should submit a CV, a statement of research interests, and a future research plan (three pages). At least three letters of recommendation should be sent to the CIBR Search Committee. Applicants for Postdoctoral Fellow positions can also directly contact their preferred PIs. Review of applications is ongoing, and will continue until the available positions are filled.
We will organize interactive communication meetings in exhibition Booth 71 at the 12th FENS Forum of Neuroscience on July 11-15th, 2020, which is organized by the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and hosted by the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) at Glasgow (UK). We welcome you to join CIBR and create history here.
