[visionlist] postdoctoral positions in computational neuroscience at Sandia National Laboratories

[visionlist] EEG/ERP post-doc at UC Davis

As part of a research project awarded to UC Davis by the NIH/NIA, Fernanda Ferreira, John Henderson, Tamara Swaab, and Charles DeCarli seek to hire a post-doctoral researcher with experience in EEG and ERP methods to investigate prediction
during language comprehension in older and younger adults. The start date is as early as November 1, 2017.

The research will be conducted in the Department of Psychology and the Center for Mind and Brain at UC Davis. The post-doc will be part of a large and vibrant
community of faculty, post-docs, and graduate students in the Language, Cognition, and Brain Sciences group and the Neuroscience of Cognitive Aging Program, as well as those in the Imaging Research Center, and the Center for Neuroscience. The bicycle-friendly
town of Davis is in an ideal location, sitting between San Francisco and Sacramento, with easy access to wine country (Napa and Sonoma Valleys), the Northern California coast, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and Lake Tahoe.

Highly motivated candidates with a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology, cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics, or a related field are encouraged to apply. Experience conducting EEG / ERP research (ideally, supported by
appropriate publications) is required. Strong analytic and writing skills are also critical. The appointment is on an annual basis for an initial two years, with potential for a third year. Salary will be at NIH pay scale.

Candidates should send a letter of interest by email to the lead PI, Fernanda Ferreira (fferreira@ucdavis.edu). Full applications should include a CV, publication list, brief statement
