*Postdoctoral researcher position in individual differences of plasticity
in blindness*

The Sensory and Motor Plasticity Lab, led by Ella Striem-Amit, is currently
recruiting a highly motivated and dedicated Postdoctoral researcher to join
their team at Georgetown University in Washington DC, USA.

The SAMP lab explores brain organization and experience-dependent
plasticity by studying people born blind, deaf, or without hands, using
behavioral and fMRI state-of-the-art analytical techniques. The successful
applicant will work on the topic of individual differences in plasticity in
people born blind. Specifically, the project will test how brain plasticity
in blindness may manifest differently in different individuals, and how
these differences may account for their compensatory skills and use of
assistive devices.

Excellent understanding of and experience with fMRI and data analysis are
required. Strong programming skills (Matlab/R/python, etc.) are also a
requirement. The position is not limited to US citizens.
