Postdoctoral position: fMRI imaging of auditory cortex


A postdoctoral position investigating the functional organization of human
auditory cortex is available in the Human Cognitive Neurophysiology
Laboratory of the VA-Northern California Health Care System (VANCHCS) in
Martinez, CA about 25 mi. from Berkeley. The laboratory is affiliated with
UC Davis and UC Berkeley. The research involves the combined use of
structural and functional MR measures to define auditory cortical fields
maps.  Field activations are imaged in a variety of perceptual and
selective-attention paradigms and examined on flattened and normalized maps
of the auditory cortical surface.  Research opportunities are also
available using ERPs and/or fMRI to investigate patient populations with
focal cortical lesions.  Position duration: 2-5 yrs.  Salary:
$35,000-$55,000 depending on experience.

QUALIFICATIONS.  Successful candidates will have a strong background in
auditory perception, physiology and/or anatomy (PhD or MD required), a good
publication record, familiarity with Windows and Linux operating systems,
and some programming experience. Knowledge of neuroanatomy, psychophysics,
and neuroimaging methods including ERPs, fMRI, or TMS is
desirable.  Interested candidates should email a C.V., representative
publications, and the names of three references to: Professor David L.
Woods, Dept. of Neurology, UC Davis and VANCHCS (127E), 150 Muir Rd.,
Martinez CA 94553.  Email: dlwoods@ucdavis.edu.
