Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in my lab (Snow Lab:
) in the Department of Psychology at The University of Nevada, Reno.

This NIH-funded research project investigates the cognitive and neural
basis of real-world vision. The projects use a combination of fMRI,
neuropsychological, psychophysical and kinematic measures. The Snow Lab is
equipped with facilities for eye tracking, 3D visualization including
stereoscopic and augmented reality displays, optotrak for recording
movement kinematics, TMS, as well as custom-designed equipment for
presenting real-world objects under controlled viewing conditions. The
position has a flexible start date, but can be as soon as February 1, 2018.
Applications will be assessed as they arrive; position posting will remain
open until filled. Salary will be based on NIH post-doctoral rates and
commensurate with experience. The position is a non-tenure-track full-time
‘A’ contract appointment for 12 months with potential for renewal for
additional years.

The Snow Lab is part of the Cognitive and Brain Sciences Program (
and the Center for Integrative Neuroscience (
https://www.unr.edu/neuroscience/center) at UNR, that together form a
strong vision science and multidisciplinary neuroscience group. Access to a
wide variety of additional resources and research opportunities is
available through the NIH COBRE for Integrative Neuroscience, including a
3T fMRI facility, AR/VR facility, and 256-channel HD-EEG systems. Reno sits
at the base of the Eastern Sierras, minutes from Lake Tahoe, major ski
resorts, and unlimited outdoor recreation.

Required Qualifications:

Applicants should have a PhD degree in psychology, neuroscience, or a
related discipline. Experience in human fMRI design and data analysis is
necessary (Brain Voyager, CoSMoMVPA, and Matlab preferred) with particular
emphasis on multivoxel pattern analysis (MVPA) and multidimensional scaling
(MDS) of fMRI data. Strong computer programming skills (Matlab/Psychtoolbox)
are also required.

Informal inquiries should be addressed to Jacqueline Snow: snow at unr.edu.
