[visionlist] Research Assistant Position, Perception and Computational Neuroscience, Vanderbilt UniversityPosted: May 16, 2017
A full-time research assistant position is available in Frank Tong’s lab at Vanderbilt University to help conduct behavioral and fMRI studies of human visual perception, attention, working memory, and object recognition. We seek a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual with a solid mathematical or computational background, who has strong organizational skills and enjoys working closely with researchers and participants.
The lab relies on advanced techniques to characterize human vision and cognition, including visual psychophysics, high-resolution fMRI at 7 Tesla, multivariate and regression-based analyses, computational modeling, and more recently, deep learning approaches to characterize visual processing. Opportunities for pursing TMS, EEG, and working with clinical populations are also available.
This position is very well suited for recent recipients of a BA/BS seeking to gain greater research experience before pursuing graduate studies. Applicants should preferably have a background in neuroscience, computer science or engineering, or psychology. Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience. VU/EO/AAE.
