Postdoc position (current ad):

A postdoctoral position is available in the Attention and Cognition Lab of Dr. Sarah Shomstein at the George Washington University: http://home.gwu.edu/~shom/ACL/. Research topics include neural mechanisms of attentional orienting, spatial and object-based selection, and semantic influences on attentional orienting. We use a variety of methods, including psychophysics, gaze-contingent eye-tracking, and advanced fMRI methods. We also have access to TMS.


We are seeking a highly qualified, motivated, individual with a recent Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g., Cognitive Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science), strong quantitative and technical skills, and shared interests in the core research area. Experience with fMRI, TMS, eye-tracking, is highly desirable. Proficiency in programming is necessary (e.g. Matlab or Python). 


GWU is home to a vibrant research community that spans cognitive neuroscience, applied visual cognition, and neuroscience and includes the GW Institute for Neuroscience and the GW Mind-Brain Institute.  GWU is located in the heart of Washington, DC.
