Successful candidates will have completed their Ph.D. by July 1, 2015, will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching missions of the department, and will maintain an excellent record of research productivity. Application and vita must be submitted electronically at www.louisville.edu/jobs, using Job ID# 30938. Additional supporting materials including CV, teaching and research statements, representative reprints and preprints, and 3 letter of reference should be e-mailed directly to: Hearing Search Committee, Ms. Leisa Hillman, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please add Job ID# 30938 in subject line. Review of applications will begin Nov. 1, 2014.
POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS: Sound perception, U. Pennsylvania (Yale Cohen)
We are seeking highly motivated post-doctoral fellows to participate in a research program that tests the neural bases of sound perception. This research will be conducted at the University of Philadelphia. The goals of these projects are to test the contribution of various regions of the auditory cortex and prefrontal cortex to sound perception in non-human primates.
Candidates should have a PhD. Those with an MD will be considered but only if the candidates have a strong scientific background. A strong candidate will have experience in systems and computational neuroscience; recording and analysis of single- and multi-unit activity and local-field potentials from awake, behaving animals (in particular non-human primates); experience in training animals on operant tasks; analysis of behavioral data and electrophysiological data; computational-analysis skills; and programming skills. We are interested in individuals who have a good personality and can interact well with other members of the laboratory.
The positions are funded through two new R01s and are available immediately. One of the grants is funded to Yale Cohen. The second is funded to both Yale Cohen and Yonatan Fishman.Salary will be based on experience and the NIH post-doctoral scale.
The University of Pennsylvania has an outstanding environment for neuroscience; in particular, systems and computational neuroscience. The environment is further enriched by the PIs’ ongoing collaborations with other members of the Penn Neuroscience community.
For more information or to apply, contact Yale Cohen (YaleECohen at gmail.com ) or Yon Fishman (yonatan.fishman at einstein.yu.edu). Interested applicants should send a CV; a brief statement of research interests; and names of 2-3 referees.
FACULTY POSITION: Cognitive Neuroscience
The Department of Psychology at Tufts University is seeking applicants at the assistant professor level for a tenure-track position in Cognitive Neuroscience, broadly defined, to begin September 2015. The successful candidate will have a doctorate and evidence of an active research program capable of supporting extramural funding. Area of specialization is open. In this regard the successful candidate should have research interests that bridge to those of other members of the program. Research interest in language, memory, cognitive aging, attention, vision, emotion/affect, and spatial cognition are examples of those that directly align with research interests in the program. However, other areas will also be considered. Applicants should be willing and able to teach introductory and advanced courses in their interest area, contribute to quantitatively-oriented laboratory courses, and participate in our Ph.D. program. Teaching load will be four courses per year.
Applicants should submit a C.V., a research synopsis, a statement of teaching philosophy, teaching evaluations, three letters of recommendation, and copies of up to three representative scholarly works to https://apply.interfolio.com/25384.
Review of applications will begin October 15, 2014, and will continue until the position is filled. Tufts University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. We are committed to increasing the diversity of our faculty. Women and members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
POSTDOC POSITION: Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience (Ref 1134/14)
The MARCS Institute, University of Western Sydney, Australia
Full Time, 2 Year Fixed Term Appointment (with the possibility of a 2 year extension)
The MARCS Institute, a research institute of the University of Western Sydney (UWS), studies the scientific bases of human communication. Research at MARCS is conducted in five interdisciplinary research programs: Music Cognition & Action, Speech & Language, Bioelectronics & Neuroscience, Multisensory Processing, and Human Machine Interaction. MARCS is located on the Bankstown, Campbelltown, Kingswood and Parramatta Campuses.
MARCS seeks a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the Music Cognition & Action research program. The position is associated with an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellowship awarded to Associate Professor Peter Keller. The grant provides funding for a 4-year project entitled “Psychological and neurophysiological mechanisms underlying human interaction in musical contexts”. The aim of the project is to investigate the behavioural and neural mechanisms that underpin an individual’s ability to synchronize with others during musical activities such as ensemble performance. These mechanisms will be examined by studying relationships between performance on sensorimotor synchronization tasks, social variables (e.g. personality), and brain structure and function in naturalistic and laboratory settings.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will have demonstrated research experience in cognitive neuroscience, specifically neuroimaging, with a desirable focus on auditory temporal processing, sensorimotor integration, human motor control, or a related topic. The Postdoctoral Fellow should have knowledge of anatomical and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data acquisition and analysis techniques for estimating structural, functional, and effective connectivity between brain regions.
Remuneration Package: Academic Level A (Step 3-4) $94,027 to $99,756 p.a. (comprising Salary $79,454 to $84,295 p.a., plus 17% Superannuation, plus Leave Loading)
Position Enquiries: Associate Professor Peter Keller, (02) 9772 6722 or email email@example.com
