A postdoctoral position is available in the Perception and Learning lab (http://www.cogneurolab.org) at the University of Delaware’s Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. Under the direct supervision of Dr. Timothy Vickery, the Post-Doctoral Researcher will take a leading role in designing and implementing studies of cognitive neuroscience using fMRI and behavioral measures in normal adult human subjects. Methodological approaches employed by the lab include computational modeling of behavior, model-based fMRI, multivoxel pattern analysis, and connectivity. Research topics include reinforcement learning, decision-making, attention, memory, and visual perception.
The University of Delaware’s Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences department is a thriving research community with growing expertise in neuroscience, with methodological expertise including advanced fMRI, EEG, and TMS. A newly constructed Center for Biomedical and Brain Imaging (opening April 15, 2016) houses a cutting-edge Siemens Prisma 3T MRI suite equipped with advanced peripheral equipment for cognitive neuroscience research, including an EyeLink eye-tracker. The Center is located less than a block from the Vickery lab.
This position is fully funded by a National Science Foundation grant. Initial appointment is for 1 year with the potential for appointment to 1 additional year based on progress. The starting date for the position is flexible, with preference for a start date in Summer or Fall of 2016.
Designs and implements experimental projects including managing timelines and directing students and staff.
Programs studies and analyses. Uses advanced statistical techniques to analyze and interpret data.
Writes and collaborates on manuscripts and presents research at scientific conferences.
Provides specialized training and supervision of graduate and undergraduate level assistants, in behavioral and fMRI study design, implementation, and analysis.
Oversees conduct of the lab’s MRI experiments at the Center for Biomedical and Brain Imaging.
Coordinates data management ensuring data integrity and protocol compliance.
Manages compliance with human subject protocols.
Doctoral degree in psychology, neuroscience, or related field.
Previous experience or demonstrated aptitude in the study of cognitive neuroscience.
Strong technical skills. Proficiency in high-level programming language (e.g., Matlab or Python) is required. Prior experience with neuroimaging (fMRI, EEG, or MEG) and/or advanced statistical methods is strongly preferred.
