*** Sorry for multiple postings***
We invite applicants with strong motivation in investigating the neural
mechanisms of face processing and visual attention/saliency to apply for a
postdoctoral position at the Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute
(BRNI), West Virginia University.
The applicant will work on intracranial single-unit recordings from human
subjects, investigating questions related to face processing and/or visual
attention and visual saliency. This will include experimental work with
patients (electrophysiology and behavior), data processing and analysis,
spike-train analysis, and experimental design. The applicant will have
access to state-of-the art equipment, facilities and analytical methods and
this research will be in a highly collaborative environment. The applicant
will not only collaborate with investigators at the BRNI, but also be part
of an established team of investigators at both Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
(Dr. Ueli Rutishauser) and the California Institute of Technology (Dr.
Ralph Adolphs), with ample opportunity to learn new techniques and methods.
Candidates should have a recent PhD in systems, cognitive, or computational
neuroscience with a track-record of first-author publications. Strong
programming (Matlab or similar), data analysis, statistics and
electrophysiology skills are essential. Excellent written and oral English
communication skills are required, including the ability to communicate
with patients and their families. Individuals with previous human
intracranial EEG experience and/or macaque single neuron recordings that
wish to expand into human single-unit recordings are encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should send a CV, including a list of publications, a
brief description of research interests and analysis skills, and contact
information for 2-3 reference letters to Shuo Wang (shuo.wang at mail.wvu.edu).
Informal inquiries are welcome. Further information about the lab can be
