Postdoctoral researcher, neuroimaging & computational neuroscience 
(Megan Peters)

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 
is filled.
