The Laboratory of Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience (https://med.stanford.edu/parvizi-lab.html) at Stanford University, headed by Dr. Josef Parvizi, and the Attention and Brain Recovery Laboratory at Washington University School of Medicine, headed by Drs. Maurizio Corbetta and Gordon Shulman (http://www.nil.wustl.edu/labs/corbetta) have an opening for a joint postdoctoral position. The position is part of a multi-site NIH funded Conte Center project that combines computational and neurophysiological studies in humans with similar ones in non-human primates. The Stanford/ Wash U component of the project focuses on the human neurophysiology of attentional mechanisms for sampling visual information from the environment, and includes experiments involving intracranial direct recordings from and electrical stimulation of the human brain in neurosurgical subjects.
The candidate will be expected to have a solid background at the PhD level in signal processing (fMRI, EEG, MEG, or pupillometry) and programming and coding of experimental tasks. The successful candidate is expected to 1) run psychophysical paradigms, including eye movement monitoring, 2) collect the corresponding data from ECoG patients, 3) independently analyze the data, and 4) prepare manuscripts for publication. The post-doc will mostly work at LBCN Stanford University – California but will also spend some time in Saint Louis. 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 April 1, 2018, but is negotiable. Applicants should send a statement of interest, a CV, and a list of three potential referees to Josef Parvizi, M.D., Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org), Maurizio Corbetta, M.D. (email@example.com) and Gordon Shulman Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org).
