*Postdoctoral position in object and face recognition at NYU Abu Dhabi*

A postdoctoral research position is open at the Objects and Knowledge
Laboratory, headed by Dr. Olivia Cheung, at New York University Abu Dhabi (
http://www.oliviacheunglab.org/). The postdoctoral researcher will carry
out behavioral and fMRI experiments on human object/face/letter/scene
recognition. Potential research projects include, but are not limited to,
investigations of the influences of experience and conceptual knowledge on
recognition processes.

related field, and should possess strong programming skills (e.g., Matlab).
Prior experience with neuroimaging and psychophysical techniques is highly
preferred. Initial appointment is for up to two years. Starting date is

The Objects and Knowledge Laboratory is part of the rapidly growing
Psychology division at New York University Abu Dhabi. The lab is located in
the campus on Saadiyat Island (Abu Dhabi’s cultural hub), and has access to
the state-of-the-art neuroimaging and behavioral facilities (including MRI,
MEG, eyetracking).

Apart from a competitive salary, the postdoctoral researcher will receive
housing and other benefits. More information about living in Abu Dhabi can

interests and the promotion of cross-cultural and interdisciplinary
solutions for problems both local and global.

Informal inquiries regarding the position, university, or area, are
