The Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology (CEBSIT, http://english.cebsit.cas.cn/) formerly known as the Institute of Neuroscience (ION) is a cross-disciplinary, multi-institutional organization that aims to consolidate existing research strength of CAS laboratories via the formation of collaborative research teams. These teams will address major frontier questions in brain science as well as in intelligence technology that involves brain-inspired computing methods and devices. The newly established International Center for Primate Brain Research (ICPBR) is affiliated to the CEBSIT, aims to be one of the world-class brain research institution.
A lab manager position is open in the Dynamic Embodied Brain Laboratory (DEB Lab) at ICBPR, led by the principal investigator (PI) Dr. Henry Evrard. The DEB Lab examines the relations between bodily functions (e.g., heart rate) and brain functions (e.g., emotions) at the neuroanatomical, neurophysiological, and neuroimaging levels. These relations are of paramount importance for our daily affective and cognitive life, for our sense of self, our well-being, and our mental health. The DEB Lab is internationally active and connected, with research being conducted both at the ICPBR as well as in collaborating centers in Europe and the USA. The DEB Lab is currently recruiting both Chinese and non-Chinese team members, aiming at creating a very active, cohesive and harmonious international team.
The candidate will be responsible for all aspects of the DEB Lab’s management, including, but not limited to:
a. Purchasing, budget, and maintenance contracts.
b. Grant application and management.
c. Personnel welcome, administrative, and travel arrangements.
d. Visitors welcome and travel arrangement.
e. Assisting the PI in keeping track of lab schedules.
f. Administrative liaison with CAS, CEBSIT and ICPBR core administrations.
g. International liaison.
h. Assisting DEB Lab researchers, based on experience. The DEB Lab will provide the candidate with an appropriate training in these methods.
1. Bachelor (or higher) in management, or biology, veterinary science, or a related field is required.
2. Excellent speaking, reading and writing skills in both Chinese and English.
3. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are required.
4. Proficiency in using basic computer programs including Microsoft Office.
5. Work independently and efficiently, with good work ethics and team work spirit.
6. Experience in a manager/assistant position is preferable.
