Job number JPF00417

Four postdoctoral positions will be available beginning on September 1, 
2015. This is a three-year fellowship, and the competition is open to 
all qualified candidates regardless of institutional affiliation.

The SAGE Center Junior Fellowship Program, established in 2011, fosters 
interdisciplinary research in the study of brain-mind interaction at the 
postdoctoral level. We are seeking a group of highly collaborative, 
interacting fellows who are willing to take different approaches to 
shared conceptual challenges.  Qualified applicants should be able and 
will be encouraged to utilize the UCSB Brain Imaging Center 
(http://www.bic.ucsb.edu/). The Center supports the new PRISMA (3T) 
Siemens magnet as well as MRI compatible high density 
electroencephalography hardware.  Center funding will be available for 
imaging studies.

In addition to developing research programs in close collaboration with 
individual faculty, Junior Fellows will enjoy special privileges, 
including access to visiting SAGE Scholars and attendance at regular 
group meetings to collaborate and share information about the role of 
psychology, cognitive neuroscience, economics, political science, 
anthropology, biology, physics, engineering, the arts, philosophy and 
other disciplines on the study of brain, mind and behavior. To be 
eligible for the Junior Fellows program, a candidate must have been 
awarded a doctoral degree or foreign equivalent within the past five years.

Proposed research topics must be related to brain-mind interaction. 
Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. We will strive to create a 
team based on common interests of the top applicants.

To apply, please submit:
1. A complete CV, published article and three letters of recommendation
2. A statement of your research interests and a description of how those 
interests complement the goals of the SAGE Center.

For primary consideration, apply by February 1, 2015, although we will 
accept applications until the positions are filled. Please submit your 
application at https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/apply/JPF00417. Inquiries 
about your application may be directed to 
juniorfellows at sagecenter.ucsb.edu; include your last name in the subject 
line of all correspondence.
