The Perception, Neuroimaging, and Modeling lab (PI: Dr. Doby Rahnev,
rahnevlab.gatech.edu) is hiring 3 postdocs and 2 lab managers. The exact
topic of research is flexible and could include investigating the neural
and/or computational bases of perceptual decision making, metacognition,
attention, expectation or learning. A special focus of the lab is how these
processes are supported by large distributed brain networks. The Rahnev lab
uses a wide range of methods such as fMRI, TMS, psychophysics,
computational modeling and concurrent TMS-fMRI. All positions are funded by
recent NIH and ONR grants and are initially for 2 years with a possibility
for extension. Candidates will be given the opportunity to conduct studies
building on current lab research or developing their own projects ideas.
The positions are available immediately; it is expected that the start date
for most positions will be in the Summer or early Fall of 2020 though
earlier start dates are preferred.
The Rahnev lab, at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, has
access to exceptional research facilities. The lab space is conveniently
located just steps away from a 3T Prisma MRI scanner at the Center for
Advanced Brain Imaging (CABI, cabiatl.com). The lab also houses its own TMS
equipment and is pioneering the use of concurrent TMS-fMRI that allows TMS
to be delivered inside the MRI scanner. Working in the Rahnev lab presents
opportunities for collaborations across several Atlanta-based universities
including Georgia Tech, Emory and Georgia State. Together, these
universities have transformed Atlanta into a hub for psychological and
neuroscience research with particular strengths in computational
neuroscience, the study of special populations (disease, aging, children),
ECoG, concurrent brain stimulation and brain recording, and animal
research. Georgia Tech has an attractive campus in the heart of Atlanta, a
large, vibrant, multicultural city that boasts impressive cultural,
culinary, and entertainment opportunities.
The Rahnev lab aims to create a supportive, fun and productive environment.
We are especially interested in maintaining our already diverse team and
therefore seek applications from qualified individuals from all
demographics and backgrounds.
The ideal postdoctoral candidate would have strong computer programming and
statistical skills, a promising publication record, and previous experience
in fMRI data collection and analyses (though candidates without such
experience will also be considered).
The ideal lab manager candidate would have at least intermediate
programming experience, strong attention to detail, and interest in
research, including the possibility of going to graduate school.
To apply, email (1) your CV, (2) a brief description of your research
interests and how they match the directions of the lab, and (3) a list of
three references (names and email addresses will suffice at this point) to
Dr. Doby Rahnev (rahnev at psych.gatech.edu).
