Postdoctoral Associate: Dual-EEG Studies of Team Dynamics

The Human Brain and Behavior Laboratory (HBBL), Center for Complex Systems 
and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) is offering a 
Postdoctoral Position in the area of Social Neuroscience. The research 
program aims to study brain dynamics associated with team cooperation, 
action coordination and situational awareness. The postdoctoral scientist 
will contribute to behavioral and neurobehavioral experiments. He/she will 
be highly motivated and will be able to work independently. He/she will also 
collaborate within an interdisciplinary team of researchers whose expertise 
spans Neuroscience, Psychology and Physics with the goal of understanding 
brains and behaviors in terms of complex dynamical systems.
The laboratory is equipped with a high density EEG system (Neuroscan Synamp 
II) including dual-EEG capability, sound-isolated faraday chamber, Polhemus 
Isotrack II and Fastrak electrode positioning system, software suites for 
source reconstruction and multimodal brain imaging (Curry). Behavioral 
facility includes a Northern Digital OPTOTRAK 3010 and mutichannel Analog 
input/output systems by National Instrument. A 3T Signa Excite MR scanner is 
also available for extending the work to fMRI and DTI and possibilities for 
MEG and PET tracer studies are in place. Computationally intensive 
applications can be directed to a Beowulf cluster maintained by FAU Charles 
E. Schmidt College of Science.
Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent, and a solid expertise in 
EEG data acquisition and analysis. In addition, experience in one or more 
relevant domains will be considered an advantage:
- Programming (Matlab, C, visual basic),
- Dynamical systems, theoretical modeling
- Excellent writing skills

The position will be for one year with the possibility of extension 
depending on satisfactory progress. Salary will be commensurable with 
experience. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until 
the position is filled. Qualified candidates should send CV and arrange for 
3 reference letters via email to:
