A postdoctoral position is open in the Perception, Action & Cognition (PAC)
lab led by Dr. Joo-Hyun Song, Department of Cognitive, Linguistic &
Psychological Sciences (CLPS) at Brown University (Providence, RI) in
collaboration with Dr. Dagmar Sternad at Northeastern University.
We investigate the underlying mechanisms involved in perceptual and motor
timing using techniques of psychophysics, behavioral measurements of arm
movement trajectories, and computational modeling. General information
about the lab’s research interests can be found
We are seeking highly qualified individuals with a Ph.D. in a relevant
field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, biomedical engineering) and shared
interests in the core research area with high productivity. The applicant
should demonstrate an academic record of scientific excellence, independent
research, and a strong interest in an interdisciplinary approach to human
motor control. Experience in programming is expected (Matlab, C++,
Statistics packages, etc.). He/she will get involved in existing research
projects but is also encouraged to bring to bear his/her expertise and
interest in the generation of new research projects.
In particular, strong backgrounds in motor control and time perception with
psychophysical methods are highly desirable. Moreover, we expect excellent
communication and writing skills.
To apply, please send a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and
the names of three references. Questions and/or application materials
should be emailed to joo-hyun_song at brown.edu.
