Postdoctoral position available - Auditory/Cross-Modal Functional MRI

Center for Auditory Neuroimaging, University of Washington

 

An opportunity is currently available for a talented and motivated
post-doctoral research trainee to join the newly formed Center for Auditory
Neuroimaging (CAN) at the University of Washington, Seattle. 

 

This position will involve developing and implementing technical solutions
for functional magnetic resonance imaging of auditory processing and
carrying out collaborative auditory or cross-modal research in a CAN
affiliated laboratory. CAN-affiliated laboratories include those of Dr.
Christopher Stecker  <http://faculty.washington.edu/cstecker> (binaural
auditory processing), Dr. <http://faculty.washington.edu/gboynton/>
Geoffrey Boynton (cross-modal attention) and Dr. Ione Fine
<http://faculty.washington.edu/ionefine/>  (cross-modal processing in blind
individuals).

 

Facilities available on campus include labs for human behavioral testing, in
vivo and in vitro neurophysiology, multi-channel EEG; 3-Tesla MRI of human
and animal subjects, and a new facility for MEG research. 

 

The Center for Auditory Neuroimaging is closely linked to several other
campus units engaged in auditory and visual neuroscience research. These
include the Virginia <http://depts.washington.edu/hearing/>  Merrill Bloedel
Hearing Research Center, the Vision and Cognition Group
<http://depts.washington.edu/viscog/> , the Institute for Learning and Brain
Sciences <http://ilabs.washington.edu/>  and the Integrative
<https://www.ibic.washington.edu/wiki/display/public/Our%20Resources>
Brain-Imaging Center and Diagnostic Imaging Science Center, as well as the
departments of Speech and Hearing <http://depts.washington.edu/sphsc/>
Science, Psychology, Biomedical Engineering, and Music Education.

 

The successful candidate will have expertise in one or more of the following
areas: (1) acoustical signal processing, calibration and measurement; (2)
auditory, visual or multimodal cortex (e.g., functional anatomy and/or
physiology in animal models); (3) fMRI of sensory or cognitive systems.
Candidates with experience programming in MATLAB and/or Presentation
software and previous experience in BOLD imaging will be viewed most
favorably.



Eligibility: at the time of appointment, the successful candidate must be a
citizen, non-citizen national, or alien permanent resident of the U.S., and
have received a Ph.D., M.D., or comparable doctoral degree from an
accredited domestic or foreign institution. Eligibility requirements follow
those established for the NRSA (see
http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-06-468.html#SectionIII or
inquire by email for further information). Informal inquiries may be
addressed by email to Dr. Christopher Stecker at the following address:
cstecker at uw.edu. 

 

To apply, please submit a current CV along with a short personal statement
and the names of two qualified references by email to Dr. Christopher
Stecker, cstecker at uw.edu.
