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.
