Postdoctoral Fellowship in Model-based Cognitive Neuroscience at Vanderbilt
We eagerly seek postdoctoral fellows to join an ongoing NEI-funded collaboration between Thomas Palmeri, Jeffrey Schall, and Gordon Logan at Vanderbilt University using cognitive and neural models to understand visual cognition in humans and monkeys. Successful models predict details of observed behavior and are constrained by and predict neurophysiological, electrophysiological, or brain imaging data.
Research facilities include several high-end laboratory workstations, computerized behavioral testing stations, a web-based server infrastructure for online experiments, two eye trackers, a shared 10,000+ core CPU cluster and large-scale GPU cluster at Vanderbilt’s ACCRE, state-of-the art facilities for neurophysiology, electrophysiology, and brain imaging, as well as ample office and research space. Postdoctoral fellows will also take advantage of the collaborative environment, facilities, and support in the Department of Psychology and the Vanderbilt Vision Research Center. And as Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters said, “Everybody now thinks that Nashville is the coolest city in America”.
Applicants should send a cover letter with a brief research statement, a current CV, and names and email addresses of three references to:
