Open Postdoctoral Positions


The Perception and Brain Dynamics Laboratory (PI: Biyu J. He, Ph.D.; at New York University Grossman School of Medicine invites applications for an open post-doctoral position.  We are interested in candidates with a background in perceptual/cognitive neuroscience and/or related neuro-AI fields.  Suitable experiences include human electrophysiology (MEG/EEG or intracranial recordings), neuroimaging (fMRI), or computational modeling. The successful applicant will be able to participate in cutting-edge research in the field of perceptual neuroscience (with flexibility in the specific research questions), and will have opportunities to employ advanced recording (e.g., M/EEG, 7T fMRI, iEEG) and/or stimulation (e.g., TMS, cortical stimulation) methods in their research. 

Our laboratory is located on the medical campus of New York University in Manhattan, NY, and is affiliated with the Neuroscience Institute, Departments of Neurology, Neuroscience & Physiology, and Radiology. The position is expected to last at least 2 years, and is renewed annually depending on satisfactory performance and availability of funding.

The annual salary for this position will be $70,000 or higher. We provide competitive benefits including healthcare benefits and subsidized postdoctoral housing in Manhattan. Start date is flexible, and is expected to be between March and September of 2024.

Prospective Graduate Students


Prof. He takes graduate (prospective Ph.D.) students through the NYU Neuroscience graduate program and the NYU Vilcek Biomedical Imaging and Technology program. Both programs require a centralized admission process. Students interested in conducting Ph.D. thesis work in our lab should apply to one of these programs and list Prof. He as a faculty member you are interested in working with in the application form. Direct inquiry with Prof. He is not needed for application to one of these programs.


General Inquiries


We also welcome rotation students, research volunteers, and medical students / residents / fellows interested in human brain research. We are especially interested in candidates with a neuroscience background and/or quantitative/programming skills.
