The Department of Psychology at Hofstra University is conducting a search for a faculty member in Cognitive Neuroscience (broadly defined) to be a core member of our Undergraduate Psychology and Neuroscience programs.  A partial job description is below, including a link to the complete position announcement.

The Department of Psychology at Hofstra University invites applications for an anticipated full-time, tenure-track assistant professor position beginning September 2023. Applicants should have a strong emphasis in the area of Cognitive Neuroscience, with a research focus that complements our current neuroscience faculty expertise in memory, executive function, spatial cognition and decision-making.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach 18 hours a year (2 to 3 courses a semester) primarily in an undergraduate program whose mission is to train students in the scientific foundations of psychology. The new hire will be asked to teach a subset of the following undergraduate courses: Introduction to Neuroscience (co-taught with a faculty member in biology), Cognition, Sensation & Perception, Introduction to Psychology, Statistics, Research Methods, and a Research Seminar in Neuroscience or Cognitive Psychology.

There are a variety of collaborative research resources available to neuroscience faculty on and off campus. A qualified candidate may have shared access to the department's new neurophysiology lab, which houses a B-Alert X24 20-channel mobile EEG system, BIOPAC functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) system and BIOPAC equipment for measurement of skin conductance and heart rate variability. Faculty can also request access to the Behavioral Research in Business Lab, which includes 27 workstations with cameras, audio/voice equipment, eyetracking capabilities, and a variety of other biometric options. The School of Engineering is currently building a big data analysis lab with an HPC/AI cluster and HPE parallel file system; the initial build (opening in 2023) includes a two-node NVIDIA GPU cluster with plans for a further 2-4 nodes upon grant funding. Finally, research collaborations with, and joint appointment to, the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research of the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine is possible, for access to a Signa 3-T MRI equipped for structural and functional imaging.

Review of applications will begin on October 21.

Subject: [visionlist] Post-doc / Phd positions in Multisensory Perception


The Multisensory Perception Lab at Tufts University is recruiting a post-doctoral associate and PhD students.

Our research concentrates on the computational principles and plasticity of perception across the different senses. We combine psychophysics and eye-tracking with mathematical modeling and add neuroscientific and machine learning approaches when applicable.

The lab actively supports its members in achieving their long-term research and career goals and has strong interdisciplinary collaborations at the local, national, and international level. Tufts is a small, selective research university in the Boston metro area.

More information about the lab and the positions can be found on our website (https://sites.tufts.edu/multisensory/<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fsites.tufts.edu%2Fmultisensory%2F&data=05%7C01%7Ckeith.shafritz%40hofstra.edu%7Ca8f9c9bc92074e8a6eb108daa3123c90%7Ce32fc43d7c6246d9b49fcd53ba8d9424%7C0%7C0%7C638001596113822734%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=%2BHgu4aBvOmSmV9%2BedSlsuOERB8y4dVpaSc22iGenBX0%3D&reserved=0>).
