Postdoc Positions on Drosophila neuroscience in Taiwan

3 postdoc positions are available at the Dr. Ann-Shyn Chiang’s group in Brain Research Center (BRC) at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan. Dr. Chiang’s lab is well-known for the contribution in connectomics, learning and memory in Drosophila.

Dr. Chiang is a current Academician of Academia Sinica, Dean of College of Life Science, Director of BRC in Taiwan and member of Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind at the University of California, San Diego. The research groups in BRC have very broad and diverse interests in neuroscience, including learning and memory, connectomics, genes and diseases, neural computation, innovative technology in brain science and X-ray 3D tomography.

The research team led by Dr. Chiang has many great achievements in the last 2 decades, including inventing world-first tissue clearing, discoveries of odor representation in the higher brain centers via a circuit shunting mechanism, long-term memory stored in only few brain neurons and construction of 3D fly brain database at single neuron resolution. His team is also dedicated to construct new technologies for brain research, such as automated laser tracking and optogenetic manipulation system (ALTOMS), light-sheet functional imaging and super-resolution microscopy. His team also collaborates with many good scientists in Taiwan and abroad. Many previous studies are published in highly impacted journals, such as Cell, Neuron, Nature Neuroscience, Nature Communication, Science and Current Biology.

One of the most challenging and unanswered questions in neuroscience is how and where memory is formed and stored. Dr. Chiang’s team has spent many years in studying molecular and cellular mechanisms of aversive long-term memory in Drosophila. To understand the underlying mechanisms at circuitry level, the team is adapting comprehensive methods and directions, including functional imaging, super-resolution microscopy, optogenetics, behavior, electrophysiology and network simulations. We are still seeking for new talents and expertise to work together.

According to theInternational Postdoctoral Scholarship Program funded by MOST in Taiwan, Dr. Ann-Shyn Chiang’s lab at the Brain Research Center now has 3 positions for American postdocs. The main purpose of this program is to strengthen the academic relationship between Taiwan. We welcome 3 ideal candidates highly motivated and intrigued by fascinating questions in neuroscience. Prior experience in neuroscience is preferred but not a prerequisite. Successful and motivated candidates wishing to switch from other fields will also be considered. Interested individuals may send your CV, publications, and contact Dr. Chiang via email : or Dr. Weng : / For more information.
