The Cole Neurocognition Lab, Center for Molecular & Behavioral Neuroscience (CMBN), Rutgers University-Newark (RU-N) is looking for a highly motivated and talented scientist to join the lab as a postdoctoral researcher (http://www.colelab.org). We are developing and applying exciting new approaches to understanding human brain organization and dynamics. These continuously evolving approaches are then applied to understand the neural basis of cognition, psychiatric diseases, and aging/development. Special emphasis is placed on highly flexible cognition, such as cognitive control, learning, reasoning/decision-making, and general intelligence. Computational expertise, such as with machine learning, computational neuroscience, control theory, and/or software engineering is especially desirable. Possible training in neuroimaging analysis including fMRI, EEG/MEG, tCS, TMS, and fusion approaches across modalities using computational models. Additional training is possible in computational neuroscience with neural mass models and deep learning models (artificial general intelligence and data-driven discovery of neural information transformations).
Anticipated start date is June 1, 2021. Position is for one year, renewable contingent upon continuing need for the position, availability of funding, and a positive evaluation.
Minimum Education and Experience:
Ph.D. in neuroscience, engineering, psychology, data science, and/or computer science research, or related field.
