Postdoctoral position available 

 

Computational Neuroscience and Human Psychophysics

 

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position (minimum 2 years)
in the laboratory of Dr. Wei Ji Ma (http://neuro.bcm.edu/malab) in the
Department of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston,
Texas.

 

The long-range goal of our research is to understand the representation
and processing of uncertainty in the human brain, both at the behavioral
and at the neural level. The lab uses a combination of theoretical
analysis, computational modeling, and theory-driven human experiments.
Current areas of study include multisensory perception, decision-making,
and visual search. The position provides an opportunity to take part in
highly collaborative research programs within the Computational
Psychiatry Unit (http://cpu.bcm.edu) and the Department of Neuroscience
as a whole.

 

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in computational neuroscience, physics,
mathematics, computer science, or a related field, and have a commitment
to a research career in neuroscience. Experience in human psychophysics
and programming experience with Matlab or C++ are very desirable.

 

To apply, please send CV, statement of interests, and the names and
contact information of two references to Wei Ji Ma at wjma at bcm.edu.
Consideration of applications will begin immediately, and will end when
the position is filled. Salary is competitive and will be commensurate
with experience and qualifications. Baylor College of Medicine is an
Affirmative-Action/Equal-Opportunity employer and is committed to
cultural diversity and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities
