Postdoctoral Training Opportunity - Cognitive Neuroscience

The Braga Lab is seeking a postdoctoral trainee to join the lab in the Department of Neurology at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Under the mentorship of Rodrigo M. Braga, PhD, the lab uses and develops neuroimaging techniques to characterize brain network organization and function at the level of individuals. Research topics include the nature of brain regional specialization for language, recollection and mental imagery, as well as the mechanisms of cross-network interaction at high spatiotemporal resolution.

Trainees will assist with ongoing research studies using methodologies including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) and brain stimulation. Trainees will have opportunities to participate and lead in data collection and analysis, mentorship of students and staff, presentations at national meetings, and writing publications.

Requirements: Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent doctoral degree) in neuroscience or a related field, from an accredited institution. Trainees must receive their degree by the start of training or have received their degree no more than five years ago. Candidates must be a U.S. citizen or be eligible to work in the United States (after obtaining an appropriate visa).

Desired skills: Strong candidates will have prior experience with programming and neuroimaging (broadly defined), including data collection and analysis, as well as conducting behavioral experiments.

Interested candidates should email a cover letter briefly describing their research interests and qualifications, a curriculum vitae, as well as the names and contact information for three references to Ania Holubecki at: anna.holubecki@northwestern.edu
