Postdoc Position: Cognitive Neuroscience of Learning, Memory & Decision Making
We seek a postdoctoral applicant for a position at Rutgers University - Newark in New Jersey to work as part of an international interdisciplinary team studying the cognitive neuropsychology and neuroimaging of learning and decision making. Prior experience in one or more of: cognitive psychology of learning and memory, behavioral studies of brain-damaged subjects or functional neuroimaging required. Some familiarity with neuro-computational modeling helpful but not essential.
[An additional position is also available for someone with strong computer modeling and programming skills to work on computational modeling of front-striatal-hippocampal interaction in learning, with emphasis on modeling degenerative brain disorders.]
Clinical behavioral studies in our lab include studies of patients with Parkinson's disease, dystonia, drug addiction, FTD, depression, amnesia, or MCI/Alzheimer's. Collaborative projects include local partners in NY and NJ, as well as international collaborations in Italy, Turkey, Korea, China, Israel, Egypt, and the Palestinian West Bank.
Note: If you are going to the Cognitive Neuroscience Society meeting in Montreal later this month, please email immediately to discuss possible interview there on Sunday or Monday morning of meeting.
We are located in downtown Newark, 13 miles outside of New York City. See http://www.gluck.edu for more information on our lab, grants, and research. To apply, please send CV and summary of your past and future research interests to Dr. Mark A. Gluck at email@example.com. Position could start in summer or fall of 2010. Note: Applicants must be US Citizens or green card holders.
