Postdoctoral researcher positions are available in Dr. Li Yan's group at IBP, CAS
With Drosophila as the model animal, Dr. Li Yan's group in the State Key Laboratory of Brain & Cognitive Sciences at the Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) mainly studies the neural circuits and core molecular mechanisms of instinct such as eating, learning, memory, and sleep. The recent research direction is to reveal the neurotrophic pathway of protein nutrition, and analyze the specific coding of this information in neuropeptides and dopamine neurons, etc., thus to explore the dynamic interaction mechanism of central and peripheral, eating behavior regulation and metabolism, immunity and other physiological functions. As well as its integrated regulation law affecting health and longevity.
Two or three special research assistants/postdoctoral researchers are required. A competitive compensation package will be offered to the successful applicants in accordance with the newest policies of the CAS, and opportunities might be obtained for preferential funding and youth talent programs.
