The Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at FIU in Miami (PI Dr. Fabian
Soto) is looking for a doctoral student to start in the Fall of 2017. The
student will work in the development of new methods to test independent
processing of stimulus dimensions in the brain, within a framework that
combines general recognition theory (a multidimensional version of signal
detection theory) and population encoding models. The developed methods
will be applied to the analysis of EEG and fMRI studies on object

Our lab's research focuses on understanding the interplay between learning
and visual processes in object categorization. We use a combination of
behavioral, computational, and brain imaging techniques.

FIU is classified as an R1 (highest research activity) institution by the
Carnegie Foundation. It is Florida’s fastest growing public research
university, the fourth largest university in the US, and one of the
nation’s largest hispanic-serving institutions. FIU has recently
established a state-of-the-art neuroimaging center (the Cognitive
Neuroscience and Imaging Center), which hosts a research-dedicated 3T
Siemens MAGNETOM Prisma MRI scanner and a fully equipped mock scanner for
pre-scan and movement training.

If you know of any potentially interested candidates with a broad
scientific background who are interested in neuroimaging, psychology, and
computational modeling, please have them contact Dr. Fabian Soto at
fabian.soto at fiu.edu. More information about FIU’s Cognitive Neuroscience
doctoral program in Psychology is available at http://cn.fiu.edu. The
deadline for application is December 1st of 2016.
