*Postdoctoral Research Position Available*
One postdoctoral research position is available at the NeuroImaging and
Lab (www.tandonlab.org) in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University
of Texas
Medical School in Houston. This position is funded by a recently awarded
BRAIN Initiative
U01 grant for which Dr. Tandon is the PI. The project uses
electrocorticographic (ECoG)
recordings on a large cohort (n=80) to evaluate psycho-linguistic models of
reading and
speech production with the goal being to create network level
representation of language.
Collaborators on the project with whom the post-doc will work closely are
Nathan Crone
(Hopkins), Greg Hickok (UCI), Stanislas Dehaene (College de France), Xaq
Pitkow (Baylor)
and Josh Breier (UT Houston).

*Project Description:*
This is a close multi center collaboration that brings together
investigators with established
track records in intracranial EEG (iEEG) recordings, neuroscience of
language and
computational neuroscience to better understand the uniquely human behavior
of reading
and producing language. More details about the U01 grant are online at NIH
Reporter. The
post-doc will benefit from a close interaction with several experts in the
fields of reading,
semantics, and speech production.

*Post-doc Responsibilities:*
The selected individual is expected to be a highly motivated, team player
that has the
passion to study cognitive processes using direct recordings in humans. He
or she will be
responsible for 1) optimizing and refining paradigms for use in the
project, 2) data collection
in the epilepsy monitoring unit and in the MRI scanner, 3) ECoG data
analysis using a
analysis pipelines existent in the lab and via the development of
innovative strategies, and 4)
data presentation at conferences, manuscript and grant writing.

The selected individual must have a Ph.D. in one or more of the following -
psychology, cognitive science, mathematics, electrical engineering or
computer science.
Previous experience in neural time series data analysis or functional
imaging studies of
reading or speech production is highly desirable. Crucial is the ability to
independently code
in either or all of the following – MATLAB, R or Python. Given the multiple
variables and privacy issues around data collection in human patients, the
individual must
possess high ethical and professionalism standards, be able to adapt to a
environment, reorganize schedules dynamically, and work with tight
deadlines. The individual
must possess the ability to work effectively independently, yet collaborate
effectively on
projects with multiple investigators. A strong publication record and
excellent prior academic
credentials are highly desirable.
