A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Russell
Epstein at the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of
Pennsylvania.  Funding for this position comes from the Spatial
Intelligence and Learning Center (SILC), an NSF-supported project that
brings together researchers from several institutions and disciplines
who an interest in spatial learning.  The successful applicant will
work on fMRI studies of spatial navigation, with the aim of
understanding how information about large-scale space is encoded in
the human brain, and how spatial representations vary as a function of
experience and navigational ability.  Although the position is based
at Penn, it is expected that the applicant will also forge
collaborations with SILC faculty at other institutions, which include
Temple University, Northwestern, and the University of Chicago.
Previous fMRI experience and some degree of computational/mathematical
sophistication is a plus.  The Center for Cognitive Neuroscience is a
lively, friendly, collaborative environment.  To apply, send a brief
statement of interest, CV, and contact information for three
references to Russell Epstein, epstein at psych.upenn.edu.  The
University of Pennsylvania is an Equal Employment
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
