Neural basis of face perception: fMRI and intracerebral EEG, healthy participants and brain-damaged patient studies
A postdoctoral position (2 years) is open to work with Bruno Rossion at the face categorization lab, University of Louvain (Belgium)
The face categorization lab (http://ift.tt/VXiuUg) at the University of Louvain http://ift.tt/1wf3wUk) would like to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to start in september/october 2014 (flexible, within a few months).
Applications will be considered until mid august or until he position is filled.
The postdoc will work in designing and running fMRI experiments on healthy participants and patients with brain damage. An important component of this project is to study the effect of surgical cortical lesions on the potential reorganization of the ventral visual pathway. Studies in healthy participants would be performed with a 3T scanner (University of Lorraine, Nancy, for patients) or high field scanners (7T and 9.4 T) at the University of Maastricht.
The project is about human fMRI and Neuropsychology mainly, but a contribution to acquisition and analysis of human intracerebral EEG data in patients is possible, depending on the candidateâ€™s research profile and interests.
Candidates should have a PhD in experimental, cognitive, biological or mathematical psychology, or in a related field (e.g., neuroscience, biomedical science, computer science, physics, mathematics). Training in vision research and neuroimaging (fMRI) research is important. MatLab programming skills are necessary. Knowledge of face perception research is an advantage, but is not necessary. The candidate will work in a laboratory with a strong background in face perception research, with multiple methods available (EEG, fMRI, eyetracker, brain-damaged patients with prosopagnosia, development) and a wide range of international collaborations. The postdoc will collaborate on this project with the CHU in Nancy (Universite de Lorraine, Prof. L. Maillard) for patient studies, the Maastricht Brain Imaging Center in the Netherlands (Prof. R. Goebel), located close to Louvain and the department of Psychology, Stanford University (K. Grill-Spector & K. Weiner).
The appointment is for 2 years. Applications should be sent by email to Bruno Rossion (firstname.lastname@example.org) and should include a CV, a brief statement of research interests, the expected date of availability and the names of 3 references. Applications should be sent immediately and applications will be considered until the position is filled.
Starting salary should be in the range of 2200 euros per month net income.

Postdoctoral Opportunity in Retinal Imaging
A postdoctoral position inthe Advanced Ocular Imaging Program at the Medical College of Wisconsin (www.mcw.edu/AOIP.htm), under the supervision of Dr. Joseph Carroll is available to a highly motivated and ambitious individual with a strong background in vision research and an interest in hereditary retinal degenerations. This position is appropriate for individuals who are preparing for a career in academia. The successful candidate will be involved in using a state-of-the-art devices (adaptive optics scanning light ophthalmoscope and spectral domain OCT) for high-resolution imaging of the living human retina. Current projects in the lab focus on using retinal imaging in combination with functional measures of vision in order to understand the mechanism of photoreceptor-based vision disorders. The successful candidate will be given significant time and dedicated lab space to explore independent research projects of their own, and will have access!
to the career development services of the Office of Postdoctoral Education at MCW (http://ift.tt/1uFTnEO).
MCW is located in a suburban setting about seven miles west of downtown Milwaukee with easy highway access from all surrounding communities. It is one of the most rapidly growing research institutions in the country in terms of NIH funding. The MCW vision research group consists of a diverse group of faculty members in multiple departments with research in the biochemistry, genetics, cell and molecularbiology of the retina and anterior segment. The vision research group is highly interactive and supported by both Core and Training Grants from the NEI.
Qualifications should include a Ph.D. in neuroscience, vision science, cell biology, or other related field. Strong quantitative skills are highly desirable, as is experience with MatLab. For application consideration please forward curriculum vitae, a statement of research activities and interests, and the names and contact information of three individuals who can provide letters of reference to the address below:
