Full Time

A postdoctoral or more senior research position is available in the lab of Dr. Tim Buschman in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute and Department of Psychology at Princeton University. The position is for a motivated researcher interested in developing and using the next generation of electrophysiological techniques in non-human primates to study working memory and cognitive control.

The Buschman lab studies the neural dynamics of complex, cognitive, behaviors. Our research uses cutting-edge recording tools in monkeys and mice to understand how dynamics in neural activity supports cognitive control, attention, and working memory. We then build complementary theoretical models to gain insight into the underlying mechanisms. More information about our research can be found on our lab website: .

Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D.; those with a background in neural-engineering, bioengineering, neuroscience, or psychology are particularly encouraged to apply. In addition, we are seeking candidates who have experience working with non-human primates and/or experience using large-scale, multiple-electrode, electrophysiology (in any model system). Strong quantitative and programming skills are also highly-desired. The term of this appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory performance and funding. Applications from members of groups historically under-represented in Neurosciences are encouraged.

Applicants should apply online at and include a CV, one or two representative publications, and a cover letter with a brief outline of your research interests. Please also include the names and contact information for at least 2 references.
