The Music and Neuroimaging Lab at BIDMC/Harvard Medical School has a new postdoctoral position in auditory-motor neuroscience.
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Gottfried Schlaug, MD, PhD and Psyche Loui, PhD. We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow for a newly funded NIH project that deals with neural correlates of tone-deafness, auditory-motor interactions, and models of vocal and non-vocal communication in adults and children. The position offers up to 2 years (renewable) of training and research opportunities using cutting-edge methodological approaches including (f)MRI, DWI/DTI, psychophysics, non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (tDCS), possibly EEG/ERP, and combinations of the above techniques.
Desirable qualifications include: (1) excellent academic training in the area of auditory perception and/or speech-motor neuroscience and neuroscience and/or cognitive psychology more broadly; (2) experience with neuroscience methods, such as those listed above; (3) computing and programming skills; (4) quantitative and/or statistical expertise; (5) skills and independence in scientific writing; and (6) experience in behavioral testing of children is a plus. Applicants should send a CV, statement of research interests and skills, preprints if available, and a list of personal references that we may contact. Position will remain open until filled.
