Postdoctoral position at University of Maryland College Park
Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Laboratory, MEG Lab

A post-doc position is available immediately to work on the neural
basis of speech perception and word recognition using MEG, in the
context of an NIH-funded project on cortical mechanisms in speech
perception. The Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Lab
(www.ling.umd.edu/cnl) is a highly interdisciplinary environment in
which research ranges from neural encoding in auditory cortex to
lexical semantics and sentence processing. In addition to the
whole-head MEG facility, the lab has a high-density EEG setup, a
head-mounted eye-tracker, and numerous behavioral research facilities.

For the project, background in MEG or EEG research would be helpful but
is not required. We are looking for someone who is interested in
learning/using MEG to study cortical mechanisms in
speech/hearing/lexical access but who is also interested in developing
his or her own research program. Independence and initiative are
therefore essential. Signal processing skills and a Matlab-o-centric
lifestyle are necessary, as are an appreciation of interdisciplinary
work and a sense of humor. A PhD in speech science, neuroscience,
physics, electrical engineering, mathematics, or biomedical imaging
would be a good background.

The position is open immediately and has secure and competitive funding
for up to three years. Applications (CV, reprints, 2 names of
references) or inquiries to:
