Postdoctoral Position in Nonhuman Primate Electrophysiology and Neuroimaging
Georgetown University, Laboratory of Integrative Neuroscience and Cognition, Washington, DC
We are seeking a highly talented, innovative and enthusiastic researcher with a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience or another closely related field, preferably awarded within the past three years, to work on audiomotor sequence processing in nonhuman primates to identify precursor mechanisms of language and music. The position is supported by a newly awarded R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health and involves electrophysiology and auditory neuroimaging in alert primates.
The research will be conducted in the Laboratory of Integrative Neuroscience and Cognition (linc.georgetown.edu) in the Department of Neuroscience at Georgetown University, Washington, DC. The laboratory has expertise in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and nonhuman primate electrophysiology. Available facilities include several auditory electrophysiology setups and a 3-Tesla MRI scanner at the Center for Functional and Molecular Imaging.
The ideal candidate will have expertise in fMRI studies of humans and/or electrophysiological recordings in animals. All candidates must possess strong quantitative/programming skills. Experience working with awake behaving primates, background in electrophysiology of the auditory system, and/or familiarity with pattern-classification techniques (such as multi-voxel pattern analysis in fMRI) will be advantageous.
