A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the laboratory of Associate Professor Rob Reinhart, in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences, Boston University.

We are looking for creative people from any background (philosophy, linguistics, cognitive science, psychology, computer science) who are excited about theory in cognitive science and want to test theoretically meaningful hypotheses using behavior and neuroscience tools (eye tracking, psychophysics, EEG, fMRI, modeling, tACS, temporal interference stimulation). We seek individuals who want to work with enthusiasm and creative rigor in a collaborative team-based environment. The postdoc will have opportunities to pursue a wide variety of human cognitive and clinical neuroscience projects. Potential areas of study include perception, working memory, long-term memory, autobiographical memory, decision-making, reward processing, and consciousness, in populations including healthy younger and older adults, and people with OCD, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease. The lab sources inspiration from researchers such as Noam Chomsky, Jerry Fodor, Randy Gallistel, Norbert Hornstein, Nikolaas Tinbergen, Claude Shannon, Hermann von Helmholtz, David Poeppel, David Marr, Karl Lashley, John Krakauer, John Platt, Thomas Chamberlin., to name a few. This position is open to both US citizens and foreign nationals. Start date is flexible.
