Postdoc Position Available in Fine/Boynton Lab
Applications are invited for a postdoc position in the lab of Ione Fine and Geoffrey Boynton at the University of Washington. Funding is available for at least two years, assuming satisfactory progress each year. Individuals up to a year out from graduation are encouraged to apply.
There are two projects to select from (or you can mix and match if you are the indecisive type):
The first project (PI Fine) examines auditory processing in early blind individuals using a combination of psychophysics and fMRI.
The second project (co-PIs Fine & Boynton) involves generating and psychophysically testing computational models which predict the percepts that patients might experience for a variety of sight recovery technologies (retinal electrical, cortical electrical, optogenetics).
Most competitive applicants will have an established publication record, programming skills and the ability to work independently. Prior experience with physiology, visual psychophysics and/or fMRI methods is also a plus. However, our laboratory fully recognizes the influence of different backgrounds on the opportunity to gain skills, and is fully committed to fostering talent.
Geoff Boynton and Ione Fine are members of the VisCog<https://courses.washington.edu/viscog/people.html> group, which is highly collaborative, with interests spanning autism spectrum disorder, MR methodology, visual perception and attention, visual prostheses, and the effects of blindness and open science. Methodologies include psychophysics, neuroimaging, computational modeling and data science. Faculty include Ione Fine, Geoff Boynton, Scott Murray, Ariel Rokem and John Palmer. Our goal is to create a community where individuals with different backgrounds and skillsets learn from each other.
The VisCog group is part of a newly established 'Center for Human Neuroscience' which brings together UW Human Neuroscience researchers across multiple departments and houses a new Siemens Prisma 3T scanner (in the same building as the VisCog laboratories).
Applicants should send a CV, a brief paragraph describing your background and postdoctoral goals, and the email address of a reference. We'll check in with you before contacting your referee.
Please contact Ione Fine if you have any questions.
