A postdoctoral position to conduct fMRI studies of neural decoding  
and object recognition is available in Dr. Frank Tong’s lab in the  
Department of Psychology at Vanderbilt University. This project,  
funded by the National Science Foundation, will investigate the  
neural representations of objects throughout the human visual pathway  
using neural decoding/pattern classification methods. Facilities  
include 3T and 7T research-dedicated MRI scanners, TMS with MRI- 
guided stereotactic system, and extensive equipment for fMRI analysis  
and visual psychophysics.

Candidates must have a PhD or MD and extensive research experience in  
at least one of the following areas: object recognition, cognitive  
neuroscience, computational methods, and functional MRI. Strong  
programming skills are essential; expertise in computational methods,  
including multivariate statistics, machine learning, computer vision  
and/or signal processing, is highly preferred.

Applicants should send their CV, research statement and names of  
three references to: frank.tong at vanderbilt.edu.  Salary and rank will  
be commensurate with experience. Start date is flexible.
