The Attention and Brain Recovery Laboratory at Washington University School of Medicine, headed by Drs. Maurizio Corbetta and Gordon Shulman, has an opening for a postdoctoral position as part of an NIH-funded grant. The grant is part of a multi-site Conte Center project on active sensing that includes computational and neurophysiological studies in humans and animals. The Washington University component of the grant focuses on the human neurophysiology of attentional mechanisms for sampling information from the environment. The candidate will be expected to program and pilot psychophysical paradigms, including eye movement monitoring, collect the corresponding data from ECoG patients, analyze the data, and prepare manuscripts for publication. The position also involves traveling to other institutions to coordinate data collection. A strong quantitative background in the analysis of human neurophysiological data (EEG, MEG, or ECoG) is essential. Applicants should have a Ph.D., which need not be restricted to neuroscience. Individuals with appropriate experience and degrees in engineering, computer science, physics, mathematics and related fields will also be considered. Salary will be commensurate with experience under NIH guidelines.
A minimum two-year commitment is required. The approximate start date is Feb. 1, 2017, but is negotiable. Applicants should send a statement of interest, a CV, and a list of three potential referees to Maurizio Corbetta, M.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Gordon Shulman Ph.D. (email@example.com)
