  JOB POSTING - Postdoctoral Fellow - Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour

Drs. Allison Sekuler and Patrick Bennett seek a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in electroencephalography (EEG) for the Vision and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada).

This is a one-year initial appointment (renewable pending funding) starting  ASAP (negotiable). In addition to salary and generous benefits, we also support your research, publishing, and conference attendance, as well as professional development opportunities.

We conduct research in a variety of areas, asking questions such as:

•    how do aging, experience, context, and perceptual learning impact the perception and neural processing of visual information?
•    how do we process and interpret faces, spatial vision, depth perception, motion perception, perceptual organization and shape perception?
•    what are the behavioural and physiological links between vision and higher level cognitive functions, such as attention and memory?
•    and, how can we develop and use technologies (including brain-machine interfaces) to improve perception in everyday settings?

You will have access to excellent lab facilities, including:
•    state-of-the-art EEG (BioSemi and Muse),
•    eye-tracking (EyeLink),
•    augmented-reality and virtual-reality systems,
•    and equipment for psychophysics, modeling, and analysis.

You also can access infrastructure in other labs, such as driving simulators, support robots, MRI, MEG, and TMS through collaborative projects.

You have completed your PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, Vision Science, Experimental Psychology, or a related discipline. You have EEG experience, and strong quantitative, statistical, and coding skills. You also have excellent experimental design and communication skills. We welcome, but do not require, experience with eye-tracking systems, AR/VR, AI/machine learning, and previous experience working with special populations, including older adults.

You love working in team environments, and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. Your primary research will be in McMaster's Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour, but we conduct regular research activities at the Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care (Toronto) as well, providing access to patient populations, such as individuals with dementia. You also can collaborate on foundational, applied, and clinical research with national and international laboratories (e.g., US, UK, Japan), and with industry partners.

McMaster is the #1 most research-intensive university in Canada, and one of the top 100 universities globally. The University is located on a scenic 300 acre campus in Hamilton, ON, which is Canada’s waterfall capital. Hamilton is a fast-growing, highly liveable, cosmopolitan city, with a population over 500,000, located within an hour of both Toronto and the US/Canada border.

This is a CUPE Local 3906, Unit 3 Collective Agreement posting.
