PostDoctoral Researcher

Institution: University of Pittsburgh

Posting Expires: 6/30/2017
Applications are invited for an NIH funded
postdoctoral position combining eye tracking and intracranial EEG
recordings in humans to study and decode visual perception, including face and object recognition and social and affective perception, at the University of Pittsburgh, USA.

The research will focus on decoding the dynamic neural code that
underlies the recognition of faces, bodies, objects, facial
expressions, and other social and affective stimuli and how this
information guides, and is guided by, eye movements. Of particular
interest is how this information is coded in interactive neural
circuits at the level of large-scale brain networks. The neural data
will primarily be local field potentials/ event related potential from
intracranial surface electrodes (electrocorticography, ECoG), cortical depth electrodes, and subcortical depth electrodes in humans in conjunction with eye tracking. There is also the potential for studies involving direct cortical stimulation to draw causal connections between the code and behavior.

The ideal applicant would hold a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology,
Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering or a related
field. Strong technical, computational, and statistical skills are
required. Experience with combining eye tracking and
electrophysiological data is strongly preferred (for example, scalp
EEG, MEG, or intracranial EEG and eye tracking). Applicants should
have a strong track record of publication.

Pittsburgh is consistently ranked the most livable city in America and the neuroscientific community here, particularly at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, is both very strong and collaborative.
Interested applicants should send a letter of interest, CV, and the
names and contact information for 3 researchers who can provide a
recommendation. For further information or to submit an application, please contact Avniel Ghuman, PhD at ghumana@upmc.edu.
