Dear colleagues,

Please share widely.

The Multisensory Brain and Cognition Lab at the University of Waterloo,
Canada is seeking postdoctoral applicants for a newly announced AMTD
<https://www.amtdgroup.com/en> Waterloo Global Talent Postdoctoral
Fellowship. The application deadline is March 16, 2020.

The Multisensory Brain and Cognition Lab has graduated a number of
successful postdoctoral fellows and provides an enriching research
environment for fellows to develop their own research programs related to
multisensory processing, self-motion perception and action, aging,
augmented and virtual reality. The lab is equipped with a 6
degree-of-freedom MOOG motion simulator, a high frequency ProPixx
projector, multiple head mounted displays, motion capture, force plates,
biopotential recording, and employs an array of techniques including
psychophysics, computational modeling, galvanic vestibular stimulation,
transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, Electroencephalography, and
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.

The incumbent will benefit from a multidisciplinary training and research
environment spanning academia and industry. The lab is housed in the Department
of Kinesiology <https://uwaterloo.ca/kinesiology/> and the Centre for
Community, Clinical and Applied Research Excellence (CCCARE
which is a unique facility that integrates research and community programs
to develop new health interventions related to exercise for health and
disease prevention, nutrition and health, brain training, vascular and
metabolic health, injury prevention, and maximizing of mobility and
prevention of falls. The lab is also associated with The Games Institute
<https://uwaterloo.ca/games-institute/>, which conducts research into the
past, present, and future of games with representation from all facilities.
