A post-doc position is now available at the Human Neuroscience and Visual Cognition Lab at the Department of Psychology, Wright State University. The lab is headed by Dr. Assaf Harel and investigates high-level vision and its neural substrates. We are particularly interested in how visual recognition occurs in real-world settings and adopt a neuroergonomic approach to study the applied aspects of high-level vision. For this purpose, we employ a diversity of cognitive neuroscience methods, including EEG, fMRI, psychophysics, and eye tracking. Research topics include, but are not limited to the following areas: visual expertise, object and scene recognition, categorization and perceptual learning.
The position is fully funded for two years. The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Neurobiology, Computer Science, or any other related discipline by the start date of the position. Strong background and familiarity with fMRI or EEG research is required. Experience in computer programming, especially with Matlab is highly encouraged and will be considered a strong advantage.
For more information on this position contact Dr. Assaf Harel: firstname.lastname@example.org.
