A postdoctoral position to conduct fMRI studies of visual perception
and/or object recognition is available in Dr. Frank Tong’s lab in the
Department of Psychology at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Tong’s lab has
developed neural decoding/pattern classification methods to
investigate the neural representations of basic visual features and
complex objects in the human visual cortex. This project will
investigate the functional properties of these visual representations
and their role in perception, attentional selection, and awareness.
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 should have a strong research background in visual
perception or object recognition. Candidates must have a PhD or MD and
extensive research experience in at least one of the following areas:
visual psychophysics, cognitive neuroscience, computational methods,
and/or functional MRI. Strong programming skills are essential;
expertise in computational methods, including multivariate statistics,
machine learning, computer vision, modeling, 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.
