Two Post-doctoral positions available in Multisensory Integration and Visual Perception
June, 2011 The laboratory of Dr. Michael Beauchamp in Houston, Texas is hiring post-doctoral fellows for two federally funded post-doctoral positions. The first position will examine multisensory integration, especially auditory-visual integration during speech perception, using fMRI and TMS. The second position, in collaboration with Dr. Daniel Yoshor, will examine visual perception using fMRI and intracranial electrical recording and electrical stimulation in patients with implanted electrodes (“eCog”). Facilities include 6 research-dedicated 3 T scanners, a Blackrock Microsystems 128-channel recording system, TMS with Brainsight MRI-guided neuronavigation; MR-compatible TMS; NIRS; eye-tracking, and complete infrastructure for psychophysics and neuroimaging. Houston has a rich neuroimaging and neuroscience community, with Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine, and the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston as partners in the Gulf Coast Consortia for quantitative biomedical sciences. Candidates must have a PhD or MD, some experience with computer programming or Matlab, and extensive research experience in at least one of the following areas: neuroimaging, electrophysiology, psychophysics, sensory perception, cognitive or systems neuroscience, computational methods, signal processing, speech and language. Please send CV, a brief statement of research interests, and names of references to Michael.S.Beauchamp at uth.tmc.edu For more information on the lab, please see http://openwetware.org/wiki/Beauchamp . Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience.
