POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AT NDSU CENTER FOR VISUAL NEUROSCIENCE

 

The North Dakota State University Center for Visual Neuroscience announces
the availability

of two postdoctoral research fellowships in visual/cognitive neuroscience.
We seek to recruit 

individuals whose research interests overlap and/or complement those of our
core faculty 

(see http://www.ndsu.nodak.edu/ndsu/psychology/ for faculty profiles).
Scholars with interests 

in visual attention (including social cues), scene perception, object
perception and recognition, 

or cognitive aging, or who possess expertise in electrophysiological
approaches to these topics, 

are especially encouraged to apply. Salary is based on NIH Kirschstein-NRSA
stipend levels, 

and the Center for Visual Neuroscience can offer postdoctoral fellows an
annual research 

and travel allowance. Initial appointment is for two years with renewal
contingent on 

performance and availability of funds. 

 

Qualifications. The minimum qualifications for the position are: completed
Ph.D.; strong 

potential for high-quality research in visual and/or cognitive neuroscience
using human 

subjects; technical competence in the design and execution of computer-based
research; 

effective interpersonal, oral, and written communication skills; and ability
to interact 

effectively with colleagues and students. In making appointments we will
weigh 

qualifications as follows (in decreasing order of importance): strong
potential for 

high-quality research using human subjects in the topic areas of
visual/cognitive 

neuroscience; technical competence in the design and execution of
computer-based 

research; effective interpersonal, oral, and written communication skills;
and ability to 

interact effectively with colleagues and students.

 

To apply, send a cover letter describing research interests and
accomplishments, a curriculum 

vita, copies of representative publications and other supporting materials,
and letters of reference 

from three individuals familiar with your career. This search will be
conducted in compliance 

with North Dakota's open-records law. Submit all materials to Mark McCourt,
Ph.D., Chair, 

Center for Visual Neuroscience Postdoctoral Search Committee, Department of

applications will 

commence April 1, 2005, and will continue until the positions are filled.
Date of appointment 

is negotiable. NDSU is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

 

THE CENTER FOR VISUAL NEUROSCIENCE

The newly established NDSU Center for Visual Neuroscience is funded by a
5-year $8.9M 

Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence grant from the NIH/NCRR and will
consist of 

10 core research faculty members, as well as numerous additional scientific
and technical staff. 

Housed in over 2100 sq ft. of remodeled space, the Center's core facilities
will include two 

168-channel high-density EEG systems for electrical brain mapping studies as
well as 

state-of-the-art driving simulator, immersive virtual reality, and PC-based
psychophysical 

laboratories with advanced eye-tracking capability.
