POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE
Multiple post-doctoral positions in Theoretical Cognitive Neuroscience lab at Boston University
The Theoretical Cognitive Neuroscience lab at Boston University (Marc Howard, principal investigator) has multiple openings for post-doctoral scholars. The lab develops quantitative models of cognition that are constrained by neurophysiological data. Our work touches on computational neuroscience, mathematical psychology, cognitive modeling, and neural theory, with special attention to neural representations of time and space. Candidates with backgrounds in psychology, neuroscience, physics, engineering, or computer science are encouraged to apply.
Please express interest to email@example.com by October 1 to ensure full consideration.
