The Human Brain and Behavior Laboratory (HBBL), Center for Complex Systems
and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) invites
applications for a Postdoctoral position for its research program in
Social Neuroscience.

The aim of this research program is to advance our understanding of basic
forms of real-time social behavior, with a three-pronged approach that
combines (1) experimental studies aimed at elucidating how neuromarkers
are organized dynamically during the course of social interaction (2) the
design and analysis of the Human Dynamic Clamp (reciprocal coupling
between humans and mathematical models of a social partner) and (3)
multiscale neurocomputational modeling of both structure and function.

The postdoctoral scientist will be highly motivated and able to work
independently. He/she will also collaborate within an interdisciplinary
team of researchers whose expertise spans Neuroscience, Psychology and
Physics. The successful applicant will contribute to the design and
conduct of neurobehavioral experiments, and/or to theoretical modeling in
which social interactions are treated as meaningfully coupled dynamical
systems (Coordination Dynamics).

Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent. Experience or
willingness to learn in one or more relevant domains will be considered an
- Theoretical modeling, dynamical systems
- Preparation and conduct of social, neurobehavioral and neurocognitive
- Recording and analysis of brain activity and behavior (e.g. EEG, MEG,
fMRI, etc)
- Digital signal processing and statistical analysis
- Programming (Matlab, C, visual basic),
- Excellent writing skills

The position will be for one year with a 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 a CV and
arrange for 3 reference letters via email to:
