NeuroAI Scholars Position at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
CSHL is seeking outstanding candidates to join an innovative new program at the intersection of neuroscience and artificial intelligence (AI). Our goal is to help jumpstart a new “NeuroAI” field, applying insights from neuroscience to catalyze the development of next-generation artificial neural network systems. To forge this new area of research, CSHL has identified a critical need for a cohort of researchers trained in both neuroscience and AI. To meet this need, CSHL is introducing the NeuroAI Scholars Program, which will train AI experts in modern neuroscience by embedding them CSHL’s neuroscience labs.
The NeuroAI Scholars position is an independent research position designed for exceptional AI researchers. We encourage applicants who have recently received a Ph.D. as well as those who have spent time in academia or industry after graduation. 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.
