An NIH-supported Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Associate Professor Rob Reinhart, in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences, Boston University.
Candidates should have a PhD with expertise in one or more of the following areas: memory, attention, decision-making, reward, consciousness, EEG, MEG, fMRI, computational modeling, or brain stimulation. We seek individuals who enjoy wrestling with hard basic science problems, who are deeply theory-driven (especially theories in cognitive science), who are experimentally and technically savvy, and who wish to work with enthusiasm and creative rigor in a collaborative team-based environment. The postdoctoral fellow will have opportunities to pursue human cognitive and clinical neuroscience projects. Potential areas of interest include working memory, long-term memory, decision-making, and consciousness, in populations such as healthy younger and older adults, and people with OCD, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s disease. This position is open to both US citizens and foreign nationals. Start date is flexible.
