Post-doctoral position in auditory cognitive neuroscience and autism, Montreal Canada

Auditory, Brain and Cognitive Development Laboratory 
Affiliated institutes:
International Laboratory for Brain Music and Sound (brams.org)
Montreal Children's Hospital Research Institute
Montreal Neurological Institute

A full-time post doctoral position is available in Dr. Krista Hyde?s
Auditory, Brain and Cognitive Development Laboratory.   The post-doctoral
fellow will participate in ongoing lab studies focused on the brain and
behavioral correlates of auditory processing in both typical development and
in autism, in both children and adults.  In the Auditory, Brain and
Cognitive Development Laboratory we conduct both behavioral and brain
imaging studies using MRI of brain structure (i.e., Voxel-based Morphometry,
Cortical thickness, Diffusion Tensor Imaging) and brain function (i.e.,
fMRI).  The lab mission is to conduct translational research that bridges
fundamental cognitive neuroscience and clinical applications in
developmental disorders (for example in autism).

Candidates must possess a PhD, previous publication record, and strong
communication and organization skills.  Candidates must have a strong
background in one or more of the following: auditory cognitive neuroscience,
brain imaging (structure, functional MRI) and working with children (and in
particular with autism or other developmental disability).  

The post-doctoral fellow will participate in all phases of the research
project, including recruitment, data collection, data analysis (behavioral
and brain imaging), and manuscript preparation. Responsibilities include,
but are not limited to, writing ethics protocols, providing instruction and
supervision to graduate research assistants on experimental procedures
assisting with recruitment and scheduling participants, testing participants
(children and adults), and maintaining rigorous scientific and ethical
standards.  The PI is committed to the promotion of the postdoctoral
fellow?s career development by creating an exciting and dynamic research
environment, and by encouraging the preparation of research papers. 

The post-doc position is initially for one year, with possible renewal for a
second year. Salary will be in line with University post-doctoral stipend
levels.  The applicant is expected to apply for external post-doctoral funding.

Please send a cover letter describing previous training and your career
goals, CV, and publications directly to Dr. Krista Hyde
krista.hyde@xxxxxxxxxx  Applicants should also provide names of three
recommenders and arrange for letters of recommendation to be sent
separately.  The appointment start date is for as soon as possible.
