Three Postdoctoral Positions 

Applications are invited for three Post-doctoral Fellow positions in the Laboratory of Neuroscience for Education (NfE Lab) in the Faculty of Education to commence as soon as possible for a period of three years. The NfE Lab is dedicated to both basic and translational research in learning.  By investigating learning in the natural social, emotional, and developmental context, the NfE Lab aims to uncover generalizable learning principles at multiple levels of analysis and in multiple domains of learning (e.g. math and language) and to create societal impact via enhancement of learning, improvement of teaching practice, and informing educational policy making. Leveraging recent advances in neurotechnology development, the NfE Lab sets its priority on bringing laboratory-based neuroimaging research into the real world of learning.

Interested applicants should send a completed application form together with an up-to-date C.V. to the Faculty at edufacd@hku.hk. Review of applications will start from February 1, 2018 and will continue until June 1, 2018 or when the position is filled, whichever is earlier.

Further enquiries could be sent to Professor Akaysha Tang, Director of the NfE Lab, Faculty of Education at actang@hku.hk. Applicants can obtain more information about the NfE Lab and Faculty by visiting their websites respectively.

Doctoral Programes in Neuroscience for Education

We welcome individuals with undergraduate training in experimental psychology, neuroscience, computer science, biomedical engineering, mathematics, and physics to apply for our highly interdisciplinary doctoral programs in Neuroscience for Education.  Individuals who are currently working as IT technologists, educators, and policy makers are particularly welcome.

Our doctoral programs are distinct from most other neuroscience laboratories in their definitive focus on real world educational challenges and engagement of educators, policy makers, parents, and technology developers in all stages of the research and development. Our programs  are designed to make neuroscience relevant to education from the start of the research projects. Our training has a strong emphasis on mobile, portable, and classroom/home friendly brain imaging techniques and skills.
