Postdoctoral Fellow in the Laboratory of Assistant Professor Hiroshi Makino

We are recruiting highly motivated postdoctoral fellows with a strong background in neuroscience or artificial intelligence, especially deep reinforcement learning. Our current study focuses on understanding the function and organisation of neural circuits in the mammalian brain underlying intelligent behaviours. We integrate various cutting-edge technologies, including a 2-photon random access mesoscope to record >10,000 neurons, electrophysiology with Neuropixels probes, optogenetics and virus-mediated circuit mapping to investigate the link between neural dynamics and behaviour. We are especially interested in applying concepts from AI research to neuroscience to understand the uniqueness and difference between the neural and artificial systems. The successful candidate will have unique expertise in cutting-edge technologies in neuroscience and computer science.

Our research laboratory (
is based at Clinical Sciences Building at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine
in Novena, a central region of Singapore. The Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine
is a newly established joint medical school between Nanyang Technological University and Imperial College London (

To apply for this position, please send a cover letter describing your career goal, CV and names of 3 references to Hiroshi Makino (email address: Strong computer science (deep reinforcement learning and robotics) and mathematics skills would be a plus. Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
