Tue Sep 29 19:41:09 CEST 2015


A joint postdoctoral position is available in the labs of Amy Finn,
Katherine Duncan, and
Christopher Honey in the Department of Psychology at the University of
Toronto. We are
seeking a colleague who is interested in understanding how the human brain
learns new
sequential structure and how this changes with development. This unique
collaboration will use
computational modeling and neuroimaging to characterize the roles that
subcortical learning
and memory systems play in the development of statistical learning. The
ideal candidate will
have experience in cognitive neuroscience, strong quantitative training and
an interest in
systems of learning and memory as well as their development.

The University of Toronto, typically ranked as one of the world's top 20
research universities, is
located in downtown Toronto. The city is one of the most liveable and
cosmopolitan cities in the
world, and has a vibrant academic and biomedical community. This full-time
position with
benefits is fully funded for two years with an initial appointment of one
year. There is also the
possibility of extending the position beyond the first two funded years by
applying for outside
fellowships, such as the Canadian Institute of Health Research Fellowships,
which are open to
international trainees. The start date is flexible.

Applicants should submit a CV, brief research statement, relevant
publications, and contact
details for two academic references to the addresses below. Please see the
posting on the
Psychology Department website
