Post-doc for auditory developmental studies with TMS and EEG
We are seeking applicants to nominate for a post-doctoral fellowship award by the Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience (ACN) Network (http://www.acn-create.org/admissions/), in the Auditory Development Laboratory in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour, McMaster University and the McMaster Institute for Music and the Mind, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
The post-doctoral fellow will work with Dr. Laurel Trainor, and participate in studies concerning the neural mechanisms underlying rhythm processing and their plasticity with music training in adults and children as well as clinical populations, using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and electroencephalography (EEG).
The studies will be part of collaborative research with Drs. Larry Roberts and Geoffry Hall at McMaster University and Drs. Tomáš Paus, Takako Fujioka, and Bernhard Ross at the Rotman Research Institute in Toronto.
Also the ACN provides scientific exchange opportunities through annual summer workshops with trainees and mentors in the other participating laboratories in the Montreal and Toronto areas.
We are looking for candidates with a PhD with a strong track record of publication and experience in TMS-related neuroimaging studies and behavioural methods.
Please contact Dr. Laurel Trainor (LJT@xxxxxxxxxxx) for more details. The deadline for ACN award application is January 20, 2012, so we will begin looking at application in early January.
