[Eeglablist] Postdoc positions in human intracranial EEG lab in NY

Two postdoc positions are available in the ECoG Laboratory for Human Brain Mapping at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research – Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine, NY USA. The lab works exclusively with patients being evaluated for epilepsy surgery using intracranial electrodes (depth or strips/grids, micro-wires for single unit recordings). The laboratory also uses invasive and non-invasive electrical stimulation, eye tracking, and imaging (MRI, fMRI, DTI) to study the patients. Research topics include the investigation of neuronal dynamics underlying selective attention and active sensing, auditory stream and speech analysis, and neural correlates of object identification. However, one position is geared towards someone with a background in fMRI processing who is interested in investigating electrophysiological correlates of BOLD dynamics.
The ideal candidate has a PhD in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, psychology, or a related field. She/he should have a solid background in signal processing (either EEG/MEG, ECoG, or fMRI), programming (Matlab or Python), statistics, and scientific writing. She/he should be comfortable working in a lab where there is interaction with clinical environments. Some supervision and mentoring of research assistants and students is expected.
The positions are funded by NIH grants, 2 years guaranteed, with expected start date as soon as possible. The candidate will have ample opportunities to work closely with national and international collaborators.
If you would like further information please send your questions to Stephan Bickel, MD PhD (sbickel at northwell.edu) and Ashesh Mehta, MD PhD (amehta.northwell.edu). If you would like to apply, please send your CV, and names and contacts of 2-3 references (ideally researchers). We are looking forward to hearing from you!
