Postdoctoral Position in Social Cognitive and Neural Sciences
Hanover, New Hampshire, USA
The Social Cognitive and Neural Sciences Lab at Dartmouth College (PI: Jon Freeman), opening later this year, is considering filling a postdoctoral fellow position for Fall 2012. The lab uses neuroimaging techniques (fMRI and EEG/ERP), real-time behavioral techniques (computer mouse-tracking), and computational modeling to study the cognitive and neural basis of person perception. The position is designed for a researcher interested in person perception, social categorization, face processing, and broadly in how we make sense of others using sensory information (e.g., facial, vocal, bodily, and contextual cues) at both the behavioral and neural levels. More information on the lab's specific research interests can be found at: http://www.jbfreeman.net.
A strong background using fMRI with behavioral analyses to address theoretically relevant questions in psychology, and person perception or face perception in particular, is beneficial. Additional experience with advanced MRI methods (e.g., MVPA, network modeling, DTI), with EEG/ERP methodology, or with facial morphing and face-space analyses is uniquely attractive, but not at all required.
The lab is housed in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences at Dartmouth, which has a state-of-the-art Brain Imaging Center and a 3T scanner dedicated for research. Beyond access to the scanner, the postdoctoral fellow will also have access to EEG/ERP, eye-tracking, and hand-tracking equipment.
If interested, submit a CV, a statement of research interests, and contact information for 3 referees to Jon Freeman at email@example.com. Please also feel free to get in touch for more information.
