PHD POSITION IN COMPLEX SYSTEMS & BRAIN SCIENCES
CENTER FOR COMPLEX SYSTEMS & BRAIN SCIENCES
FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY

Applications are currently being accepted for interdisciplinary
training in the PhD Program in Complex Systems and Brain
Sciences at FAU under Dr. Steven Bressler
(http://www.ccs.fau.edu/~bressler
<http://www.ccs.fau.edu/~bressler/> ). The program of training
will take a quantitative approach to the study of neural and
cognitive function, with emphasis on top-down control in visual
spatial attention, and will involve collaborative research with
Gordon Shulman (
<http://neuro.wustl.edu/aboutus/facultybiographies/shulman.htm>
http://neuro.wustl.edu/aboutus/facultybiographies/shulman.htm)
and Maurizio Corbetta
(http://neuro.wustl.edu/aboutus/facultybiographies/corbetta.htm)
at Washington University Medical School.

 The position will emphasize:
* Investigation of the functional connectivity of large-scale
brain networks in visual spatial attention.
* Application of causality analysis to fMRI BOLD time-series
data from both control subjects and patients with attentional
impairment.

 The program offers competitive, multi-year stipends and tuition
remission.

 The ideal candidate should have the following qualifications:
* Prior training in neuroscience and experimental psychology
* Programming experience (Matlab, C/C++, Python)
* English speaking and writing skills

 Interested students are encouraged to submit a CV, contact
details of two referees, and a short statement of research
interests to Dr. Bressler (bressler at fau.edu). Please visit the
Center for Complex Systems & Brain Sciences web site at
http://www.ccs.fau.edu <http://www.ccs.fau.edu/>  for more
information.

 The Center for Complex Systems & Brain Sciences at Florida
Atlantic University is in Boca Raton, situated between West Palm
Beach and Fort Lauderdale, with easy access to the beautiful
beaches and rich cultural life of the Miami-Dade metropolitan
area.

 Committed to Equal Opportunities.
