*Postdoctoral Position at Rutgers University: Neural mechanisms of
perception in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder using EEG and transcranial
current stimulation.*



The Division of Schizophrenia Research and Center for Molecular and
Behavioral Neuroscience at Rutgers University in New Jersey are seeking to
hire a full-time postdoctoral fellow. The overall goal of the project is to
use EEG and transcranial current stimulation (tDCS ,tACS) to investigate
the neurobiological basis of perceptual differences in schizophrenia and
bipolar disorder. The ideal candidate will have a doctoral degree in
psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, or a related field, will be
proficient in designing and performing EEG experiments with human
participants, and will have a strong affinity with sophisticated data
analysis (for instance, using Matlab).


The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in the design and further
development of experimental protocols, organizing study data, analyzing
data, writing up, and presenting scientific results.  There will also be
significant opportunity for designing and conducting original research of
the candidate’s choosing.


The Rutgers Newark Campus and the Center for Molecular and Behavioral
Neuroscience provide a diverse and stimulating scientific environment.
Collaborations are possible with investigators at other affiliated
departments and institutions including Rutgers University Brain Imaging
Center (http://rubic.rutgers.edu/), Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science (
http://ruccs.rutgers.edu), and Rutgers-Princeton Center for Computational
Cognitive Neuropsychiatry (https://ccnp.princeton.edu/about-ccnp/).  An
infinite amount of cultural stimulation is only a 15 minute train ride
away, in New York City.


An appointment at NIH postdoctoral salary scales will be made for one year,
with the possibility to renew for one or more additional years. Rutgers
University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution;
underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply. The start date is
flexible.

Interested applicants should send a CV, cover letter, representative
publications, and the names of three references to Caren Alexander (
alexanch at ubhc.rutgers.edu), using the subject heading “Postdoc Search
2017”.  Informal inquiries regarding the position are welcome and may be
directed to Brian Keane, (brian.keane at rutgers.edu; www.briankeane.org) or
Bart Krekelberg (bart at vision.rutgers.edu; www.vision.rutgers.edu)
