Postdoctoral positions are available for highly motivated and collaborative young scientists who are interested in the neural mechanisms underlying sleep/wakefulness, emotion/cognition, and these interactions.  

The Yamanaka-Ohmura Lab is a new research group at the Chinese Institute for Brain Research, Beijing (CIBR). The CIBR was founded in 2018 and has constructed an efficient research environment by providing several supporting facilities, such as the virus vector core and the imaging facility core. Further information regarding the CIBR can be found on the website:

We are studying the neural mechanisms of sleep/wakefulness regulation and emotion/cognition by using mice. We are seeking efficient, responsible, and dedicated personnel for our new laboratory. Further information regarding our research can be found on our website:
We can provide you with an excellent research environment and exciting experience leading to your next step as a successful researcher. Great research together!
