[visionlist] Postdoctoral position (Cogn Neuro) in Milwaukee, WIPosted: May 15, 2017
Please email me If you’d like to meet face-to-face to discuss this position during the 2017 Vision Sciences Society Meeting in Florida.
Postdoctoral Research Position in Cognitive Neuroscience
Department of Psychology, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
The Sensory Neuroscience, Attention, & Perception Laboratory (SNAP Lab) of Dr. Adam Greenberg is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to begin late Summer/early Fall 2017 (flexible start date). We
study the neural mechanisms of attention and perception in humans using a large range of cognitive neuroscience tools including neuroimaging (fMRI, diffusion imaging), TMS, computational modeling, and neuropsychological methods. Please find additional laboratory
details at http://ift.tt/1kfJZzx.
This fully funded position was created to coincide with multiple grant-funded studies of visual/auditory attention in both normal volunteers and cancer patients. Thus, a wide range of
specific projects are possible along with the possibility of writing manuscripts on existing data.
New project development is also strongly encouraged.
Successful candidates will have a PhD in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, etc.), should be highly motivated, and able to work both
independently and as part of a team. Experience with TMS is especially desirable, as is a strong background in attention and perception. Experience with other techniques used in the lab are welcome but not required. Proficiency in programming/scripting (e.g., MATLAB,
Linux shells) is necessary. Initial appointment will be full-time for one year, with renewal contingent upon productivity.
UW-Milwaukee is an R1 (Carnegie Classification) public, urban research university. Neuroscience faculty in the department cover a large range of research including the neurobiology of learning
& memory, aging, addiction, sleep, emotion, and of course attention and perception. The program has experienced unprecedented growth in recent years, particularly in cognitive neuroscience, and is an integral part of a large neuroscience community in the Milwaukee
area. Milwaukee is a vibrant, affordable city on the shores of Lake Michigan (90 miles from Chicago) with a high quality of life and a thriving urban culture, food, arts, & music scene. An award-winning network of parks and biking/hiking trails allow for plentiful
outdoor activities during all seasons.
Applications should be addressed to Adam Greenberg (by email to
SNAPLab-Postdoc@uwm.edu) including (1) a statement of research interests that discusses your
fit with the lab, (2) a current CV, and (3) the names/emails of three references. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
