Postdoctoral Position at Rutgers University: Neural mechanisms of perception in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder using EEG and transcranial current stimulation.

 

The Division of Schizophrenia Research and Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience at Rutgers University in New Jersey are seeking to hire a full-time postdoctoral fellow. The overall goal of the project is to use EEG and transcranial current stimulation (tDCS ,tACS) to investigate the neurobiological basis of perceptual differences in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The ideal candidate will have a doctoral degree in psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, or a related field, will be proficient in designing and performing EEG experiments with human participants, and will have a strong affinity with sophisticated data analysis (for instance, using Matlab). 

The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in the design and further development of experimental protocols, organizing study data, analyzing data, writing up, and presenting scientific results.  There will also be significant opportunity for designing and conducting original research of the candidate’s choosing.

The Rutgers Newark Campus and the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience provide a diverse and stimulating scientific environment.  Collaborations are possible with investigators at other affiliated departments and institutions including Rutgers University Brain Imaging Center (http://ift.tt/2p9fsed), Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science (http://ift.tt/1mnedTE), and Rutgers-Princeton Center for Computational Cognitive Neuropsychiatry (http://ift.tt/2p9d0o7).  An infinite amount of cultural stimulation is only a 15 minute train ride away, in New York City.

An appointment at NIH postdoctoral salary scales will be made for one year, with the possibility to renew for one or more additional years. Rutgers University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution; underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply. The start date is flexible.

Interested applicants should send a CV, cover letter, representative publications, and the names of three references to Caren Alexander (alexanch@ubhc.rutgers.edu), using the subject heading “Postdoc Search 2017”.  Informal inquiries regarding the position are welcome and may be directed to Brian Keane, (brian.keane@rutgers.edu; http://www.briankeane.org) or Bart Krekelberg (bart@vision.rutgers.edu; http://ift.tt/2oIzhwA)
