>Georgetown Institute for Cognitive and Computational Sciences
>Washington, DC
>A postdoctoral position is available in the Laboratory of Integrative
>Neuroscience and Cognition of the Georgetown Institute for Cognitive and
>Computational Sciences (GICCS) to perform functional magnetic resonance
>imaging of the higher auditory pathways in humans. A brand-new 1.5T
>Siemens Vision scanner is available, including Medx and BrainVoyager
>software, as well as SGI and other workstations. A psychoacoustics lab
>for the development of acoustic stimuli exists as well. The main thrust
>of our research is to investigate the neural coding of complex sounds,
>including speech, in functionally specialized areas of the human
>auditory cortex, and to explore the hypothesis of dual processing
>streams for auditory space and auditory patterns in the higher auditory
>pathways. Parallel studies are being performed in animal models,
>including awake behaving primates, using single-unit neurophysiology and
>optical intrinsic signal imaging. Candidates with substantial knowledge
>of psychoacoustics preferred. Knowledge of imaging techniques desirable
>but not required (training can be provided).
>GICCS is located in a new research building on the handsome campus of
>Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Georgetown University is one of
>the oldest academic institutions in North America and has a strong
>commitment to the neurosciences. Various collaborative ties exist with
>researchers at the nearby National Institutes of Health in Bethesda,
>Maryland, and with the University of Maryland. Please send applications
