Position Summary: A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Dr. Tim Buschman in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University. The lab studies the neural dynamics of complex, cognitive, behaviors using a variety of methods, including large-scale multiple-region electrophysiology, optogenetics, and behavioral techniques in both non-human primate and rodent models.
This position is for a motivated postdoctoral researcher interested in combining electrophysiological, behavioral, and optogenetic techniques in non-human primates to study cognitive control. In addition, the researcher will have the opportunity to perform complementary studies in rodent models.
The term of this appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory performance and funding. Applicants should apply online at http://jobs.princeton.edu. In your application, please include a CV, one or two representative publications, and a cover letter with a brief outline of your research interests. Please also include the names and contact information for at least 2 references.
Essential Qualifications: Essential qualifications for this position include: a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology, or a closely related field; a strong background working with non-human primates and/or a strong background in multiple-electrode electrophysiology. Strong quantitative skills (e.g. Matlab) are also highly-desired.
Education Required: Doctorate Degree
