Postdoctoral researcher, neuroimaging & computational neuroscience
The Neural Computation Lab in the Department of Bioengineering at the
University of California, Riverside, led by Dr. Megan Peters, is seeking
a postdoctoral researcher. Topics of investigation include neural
substrates of uncertainty, decision-making, and perceptual awareness
using computational analysis and neuroimaging (fMRI, EEG).
The successful candidate holds a Ph.D. or equivalent in computational
neuroscience, bioengineering, applied math, computer science, or related
field, and has substantial computational background in analyzing
neuroimaging data (e.g., MVPA, connectivity, graph theory) and ideally
computational modeling (Bayesian, signal detection theory, neural
networks). Proficiency in at least one programming language (Matlab,
Python, etc) is required.
Our research group is part of a strong and lively neuroscience research
community at UCR, and has strong ties to other groups in southern
California and worldwide, including at UCLA (Hakwan Lau’s group; Michele
Basso’s group; Alicia Izquierdo’s group), Advanced Telecommunications
Research (ATR) in Kyoto (Mitsuo Kawato’s group), and Nagoya University
(Kazuhisa Shibata’s group).
Initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility to renew
up to five years. Compensation will be according to the NIH payscale.
The University of California is an equal opportunity employer.
Applications from women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged.
To apply, please send a CV, statement of interests, up to 3 letters of
recommendation and any relevant reprints to Dr. Peters at
mpeters at engr.ucr.edu. We are accepting applications until the position
