POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW:   ENHANCING REAL-WORLD MEMORY

A fully-funded postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Christopher
Honey's lab in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Johns
Hopkins University (www.honeylab.org).

Working with the Barense Lab at the University of Toronto, our team is
developing a memory prosthetic device which enhances memory for everyday
events. This postdoctoral research would lead investigations into how
memory can be optimized by grouping, timing and framing of replay events.
The ideal candidate would be conversant in both neuropsychological theory
of memory as well as the computational analysis of real-world audiovisual
data.

Johns Hopkins is home to a large and vibrant community of neuroscience
researchers, and features strong connections between psychology, systems
and cognitive neuroscience, biomedical engineering and computer science.
Postdoctoral fellows will have access to the MARCC computing cluster; a
top-notch neuroimaging center, including 3T and 7T scanners; new TMS and
EEG facilities are housed in the PBS department; human intracranial
experiments are possible via neurology collaborators in Baltimore and
Toronto.

The targeted start date for this position is October 2017. The initial
appointment is for one year, with the opportunity for renewal thereafter.
The University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer of
women, minorities, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities and
encourages applications from these and other protected group members.
Consistent with the University's goals of achieving excellence in all
areas, we will assess the comprehensive qualifications of each applicant.

QUALIFICATIONS
Candidates should have a PhD in a relevant field (e.g., psychology,
cognitive science, neuroscience, physics, mathematics, computer science)
and a record of published work related to memory and/or wearable devices.
Strong programming skills are required.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
To apply, please email chris.honey at jhu.edu, providing: a current CV, a
brief summary of research accomplishments and plans; two example
publications or computational projects; contact information for three
references.
