The Social Perception Lab in Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College is searching for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow. We encourage applications from creative scientists who are eager to develop an independent research program involving psychophysics, neuroimaging, and neuropsychology. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to play a key role in a four-year NIH-funded project investigating the cognitive and neural basis of developmental prosopagnosia (DP). The project will examine the extent and nature of cognitive and neural anomalies in DP using behavioral tests and a rich set of neuroimaging data involving of selectivity measures, functional connectivity, population receptive field estimates, and diffusion tensor imaging.

The postdoctoral fellow will work closely with the PI (Brad Duchaine) and the Co-I (Caroline Robertson), and both are committed to the training and career development of the fellow. The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences has a concentration of laboratories working in two research areas that are highly relevant to this project – high-level vision and space perception/navigation. Moore Hall houses a research-dedicated scanner, and because of the department’s emphasis on neuroimaging, excellent support and resources are available for imaging work.

The ideal candidate for the position will have experience with both perceptual research and neuroimaging as well as an interest in neuropsychology, but we encourage enquires from candidates with other backgrounds. To apply, please send a cover letter outlining your research interests and qualifications, a CV, and contact information for two references to bradley.c.duchaine@dartmouth.edu
