Post-doctoral fellow

We have an open position for a post-doctoral fellow to begin in 2019 (flexible start date). The lab uses behavioral and neuroimaging techniques to study the mechanisms of psychotic disorders. We are particularly interested in characterizing abnormal sensory and motor processes and understanding their relevance for clinical symptoms. Many of our current projects focus on visual perception and eye movements. In this position, post-docs will have the opportunity to contribute to ongoing NIH-funded research and to develop independent studies within the broader aims of the lab. Requirements include a Ph.D. in clinical or cognitive psychology, neuroscience, or a related field. Applicants should have a strong publication record, experience with human neuroimaging, eye tracking, and/or visual psychophysics, and programming skills. The ideal candidate will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, the ability to work independently, and experience conducting research with clinical populations (although this is not required). 

Interested applicants should email Katy Thakkar at
