POSTDOC: Harvard/Rochester project on cognitive neuroscience (EEG and
fNIRS) in human infants
Funding from NSF is expected for a 1.5-year postdoc to collect and
analyze datasets gathered from human infants while they view visual
stimuli or listen to language stimuli. This is a joint project between
the Rochester Babylab (Richard Aslin, PI) and the Developmental
Cognitive Neuroscience lab at Harvard (Charles Nelson, PI).
Rochester lab: http://babylab.bcs.rochester.edu/
The goal of the project is to gather EEG and fNIRS data from 3- to
12-month-olds and merge these datasets, within-subjects at each age,
using multivariate pattern classification and representational
similarity analysis methods. The successful candidate could reside
either in Rochester, NY or Boston, MA, with some travel expected between
both sites. The preferred skill set consists of one or more of the
following: experience with the testing of human infants, collection and
analysis of EEG data, collection and analysis of fNIRS or fMRI data, use
of machine learning techniques such as MVPA, fluency in Matlab. A
machine learning consultant on the grant (Radislaw Cichy) will provide
guidance for many of the analyses.
Candidate must have a PhD (or firm plans to defend their dissertation no
later than August of 2015). Preferred start date is July 1, 2015.
Interested applicants should forward a cover letter, CV, and the names
of three references to Richard Aslin: aslin at mail.cvs.rochester.edu.
Review of application materials will begin on May 1 and continue until a
candidate has been chosen.
