CSHL is seeking outstanding candidates to join an innovative new program at the intersection of neuroscience and artificial intelligence (AI), contributing to jumpstart the new “NeuroAI” field which applies insights from neuroscience to catalyze the development of next-generation artificial neural network systems. The primary goal of NeuroAI is to develop new AI algorithms inspired by neuroscience, rather than to apply AI techniques to better understand neuroscience. Candidates whose primary interest is in applying AI to neuroscience or other fields of biology are invited to apply: http://compgen.cshl.edu/scqb_postdocs/.
CSHL’s NeuroAI Scholars Program will train AI experts in modern neuroscience by embedding them in CSHL’s neuroscience labs. The ideal candidate will have outstanding training in modern AI techniques; no training in neuroscience is required.
The NeuroAI Scholars position is an independent research position designed for exceptional AI researchers. Successful applicants must have a PhD in AI/machine learning; post-graduate experience in academia or industry is a plus. Under mentorship from CSHL’s Neuroscience faculty, NeuroAI Scholars are expected to establish their own research programs while leveraging collaborations with AI communities. NeuroAI Scholars are provided with a salary commensurate with their experience. Appointments are generally awarded for a period of two years.
The NeuroAI program will build on CSHL’s programs in neuroscience and AI, and its existing strengths in neural circuits, rodent cognition, perception, social behavior, neural development, neurogenetics, theoretical and computational neuroscience, synaptic function, and brain disorders. Applications from women and underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged. CSHL is dedicated to building and maintaining a diverse work environment.
To apply, please submit a cover letter that includes an explanation of your interest in neuroscience, CV and a one-page description of research accomplishments to: http://cshl.peopleadmin.com/postings/17342 Position ID: 02748-R . Please include the contact information for three references. We will be evaluating applications on a quarterly basis starting on November 1st 2020. Multiple positions are available. Inquiries regarding the search should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Since 1890, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has been a global leader in research and education. The international scientific community at CSHL provides a unique and stimulating atmosphere for doctoral research?an environment where students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty work side-by-side. The Watson School of Biological Sciences (WSBS) was founded on the belief that with well thought-out mechanisms, enthusiastic involvement of faculty, and highly motivated students, an innovative curriculum could be provided that would allow students to earn a doctoral degree in a shorter time than in traditional programs without compromising the quality of their training. The curriculum is designed to train students to become scholars and independent thinkers.
