Two postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Prof. Zhicheng Lin at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen). Our lab studies cognitive and neural processes underlying human behaviors, with primary efforts aiming toward two domains:
1) Cognition: What are the basic characteristics of cognition (e.g., attention, consciousness, rewards) and how does it drive behaviors? How does cognition change across lifespan and how it manifests in different (including clinical) populations? What is the neural basis of cognition?
2) Science and policy: How to achieve personal improvements and establish better social policy based on scientific evidence? How might we better disseminate such knowledge? How to go from knowledge to actions?
The lab encourages and fosters academic excellence, social responsibilities, and entrepreneurial spirits. Collaboration with other labs in China, United States and Europe is available and encouraged.
You should apply if any of the above topics in the lab interests you, or if you have a strong idea of your own that might interest me.
