A position for a postdoctoral or more senior research associate in human electrophysiology is available in the Neuroscience of Attention & Perception Laboratory (NA&P Lab), led by Dr. Sabine Kastner at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. The lab studies neural mechanisms of cognition in the primate brain. Intracranial recordings from human epilepsy patients and non-human primates are conducted using identical behavioral paradigms and combined with computational approaches.

We are seeking an extremely motivated postdoctoral researcher with background in human electrophysiology. The researcher will work on human electrophysiology datasets with an emphasis on oscillations and attention. 

Postdoctoral researchers are given the opportunity to participate in other lab research endeavors, and they are expected to make a strong contribution to the lab's overall research efforts. Training also includes an introduction to various advanced neuroimaging methodologies. This term of this appointment is one year with the possibility of renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance and funding.

Essential qualifications for these positions include: a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science or other closely related fields. Background in electrophysiology of the vision or attention is preferred. All candidates must possess strong quantitative skills (e.g. Matlab, C++, Python). 

Applicants must apply online at include a cover letter, CV, research statement, and contact information for 3 references. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
