A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Julie Golomb's Vision & Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (https://u.osu.edu/golomblab/) at The Ohio State University. Research in the lab explores the neural mechanisms of visual perception, attention, working memory, and object recognition. We focus on how objects and their spatial locations are perceived and coded in the brain, and how these representations are influenced by eye movements, shifts of attention, and other cognitive factors. The lab is supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Sloan Research Foundation, and the Ohio Supercomputer Center. We use a variety of methodologies in the lab, including human psychophysics, gaze-contingent eye-tracking, advanced fMRI and EEG methods, and computational analyses. We are currently looking for a postdoc or visiting researcher with particular interest in studying the neural representations of 3D space and depth perception using cutting-edge computational cognitive neuroscience techniques.
Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science), strong quantitative and technical skills, and shared interests in the core research area. Experience with fMRI and/or EEG and model-based analyses is highly desirable. Proficiency in programming is necessary (e.g. Matlab or Python).
OSU is home to a large and stimulating community of cognitive neuroscientists, computational modelers, and vision scientists in the Psychology Department and Center for Cognitive and Brain Sciences, as well as interdisciplinary interactions with colleagues in electrical engineering, computer science, optometry, and neuroscience. The Psychology building houses state-of-the-art fMRI and EEG facilities. OSU is located in the heart of Columbus, a vibrant city with superb food, sports, arts, and outdoor scenes, and a great cost-of-living.
Start date is flexible. Applicants are asked to send a CV, a brief statement of research interests, the expected date of availability, and the names and contact of three references to golomb.9 at osu.edu<mailto:golomb.9 at osu.edu>.
