April 18, 2024

The Jiang Lab (PI: Dr. Jing Jiang, at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine is seeking 1-2 highly motivated postdoctoral researcher(s) (2-year term with potential of extension) to conduct translational research at the intersection of neuroscience, electrophysiology, neuroimaging, brain stimulation, and psychiatry. Join us as we scale up our efforts to better understand how to modulate human brain circuits and promote the development of novel treatments to improve mental illness!!

The candidate(s) will be expected to analyze a diverse range of unique datasets for journal publications. These datasets include, but are not limited to, brain stimulation (transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), intracranial electrical stimulation (iES)) concurrent with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) or intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) datasets, and brain lesion datasets, from healthy, neuropsychiatric, and neurological populations.

You will receive training and resources to publish impactful papers, gain leadership/mentoring experience, and apply for eligible research grants. You will have networking opportunities by collaborating with clinicians (neurologists, psychiatrists, and neurosurgeons) and neuroscientists both within and outside UIowa. You will also receive professional guidance for job hunts.


  • Experience with neuroimaging and/or electrophysiological data analyses, e.g., in fMRI, (i)EEG, and/or brain network
  • Proficiency in coding with MATLAB and/or Python
  • PhD and/or MD degree in Neuroscience, Computer Science, Electrical/Biomedical Engineering, Psychology, Psychiatry/Neurology, or a related field
  • A track record of peer-reviewed scientific journal publications
  • Self-motivated, able to work independently, strong written and interpersonal communication skills

To apply, please email (1) a cover letter describing your research interests and (2) your CV to Dr. Jing Jiang (). Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Start date is flexible depending on candidate availability.
