A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Associate Professor Rob Reinhart, in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences, Boston University.
This position is funded by an NIH R01 grant from the National Institute of Aging. The project focuses on using electrophysiology and noninvasive neuromodulation to investigate (and potentially rectify) the neural oscillatory mechanisms of various memory systems in people with Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer's Disease.
