Postdoctoral research position in neuroscience of Human Language 

POSITION: We seek a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow for a collaborative team project interpreting intracranial recordings from human patients during language tasks. The fellow will apply statistical models to this neural data, and will help develop a dynamic network model of language.

TEAM: The fellow will collaborate primarily with Houston-based neurotheorist Xaq Pitkow (xaqlab.com) and neurosurgeon Nitin Tandon (tandonlab.org) and our labs, and will also interact with other team members including Nathan Crone, Stan Dehaene, and Greg Hickok. The fellow will be a member of the new Center for Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence housed at the Baylor College of Medicine. The Center brings together interdisciplinary researchers from across Houston, including members from Baylor College of Medicine, Rice University, University of Houston, and University of Texas Health Sciences. Researchers at the Center contribute diverse expertise in fields including neuroscience, machine learning, statistics, physics, computer science, electrical engineering, and applied mathematics.

QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates must have outstanding mathematical skills, a PhD in a relevant quantitative discipline, expertise in statistical machine learning, and interest in language processing.

APPLYING: Applicants should email a letter of research interests and CV to Xaq Pitkow (xaq at rice.edu), along with contact information for three references. We look forward to hearing from you!
