Postdoctoral Research Associate

Requisition Number: STFR003780

Division/College: College of Science

Location: Boston Main Campus

Full-time/Part-time: Full Time

Responsibilities:

The Hutchinson Lab of Cognitive Neuroscience at Northeastern University (www.northeastern.edu/hutchinsonlab/) is looking to hire a post-doctoral research associate. Broadly speaking, the lab is interested in how memory influences, and is influenced by, selective attention with a focus on using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques (e.g. fMRI). The associate will work with the PI in developing a research program reflective of mutual research interests in memory and attention. The individual is expected to independently manage and execute the research program as well as provide supervision and mentorship to junior lab members as needed.

Qualifications:

Applicants should possess a PhD degree or equivalent in psychology, neuroscience, computer science, or a related field by the time of employment. Evidence of an existing, well-developed, and topically related research program is essential and past work with neuroimaging data (in particular fMRI) is especially valued. Prior experience with programming (MATLAB, Python, R) and fluency in statistics with a focus on empirical data analysis is also strongly desired.

Additional Information:
The appointment is funded by an award received from an outside source. The duration of this position is contingent upon the continued availability of funding from this award at its current financial level.
