The Perception and Active Cognition laboratory in the Division of Science/
Center of Brain and Health. New York University Abu Dhabi, seeks to recruit
a Post-Doctoral Associate to work on the mechanisms underlying rapid
perception and cognition

Attention, perception, working memory and other aspects of cognition are
limited by time constraints that are linked to the temporal scales of
neural activity. On the one hand, we can find general principles linking
ongoing brain rhythms to the temporal unfolding of thought, from the
sampling rate of sensory perception to the maintenance of active
representations in memory. However, there are also large individual
differences in processing speed within the healthy adult population, across
the developmental lifespan, and when considering clinical and neurological
patient groups.

The successful applicant will drive a fascinating project on the neural
correlates of these individual and clinical differences in speed of
information processing. Required expertise includes strong knowledge of
cognitive neuroscience and expertise in at least one of the neuroimaging
methodologies involved in the project (MRI, EEG or MEG). For a competitive
application at the postdoctoral level, candidates should demonstrate
experience in leading neuroimaging studies, as shown by publications in
international scientific journals. The candidate will work in a
multidisciplinary Center environment with world-class research
infrastructure, consisting of PhD-level scientists, graduate students and
undergraduate students. Positions are funded for two years with the
possibility of renewal.

The terms of employment are extremely competitive and include housing and
educational subsidies for children. Applications will be accepted
immediately and candidates will be considered until the position is filled.
