Dear all,

Two post-doctoral positions are available in the lab of Nitin Tandon at
Houston (www.tandonlab.org), to begin as soon as fall of 2015, for a
duration of up to five years.

These positions will be supported by recent grants awarded to the PI from
the National Science Foundation and the national Institutes of Health (
www.aronlab.org). Candidates for this position should have a background in
cognition/ cognitive neuroscience/ intracranial electrophysiology and be
interested in understanding speech production in humans.

Interactions with our collaborators on these grants, particularly Greg
Hickok at UCI, Bob Knight at UC Berkeley and Behnaam Aazhang at Rice
University will be encouraged and facilitated. Both positions will involve
state-of-the-art analysis of electro-corticographic signals in patients
using stereo EEG and subdural grid electrodes and novel electrical
stimulation approaches. Opportunities for inter-modal comparisons will also
be provided. Candidates must have strong capabilities in one or more of the
following disciplines – electrophysiology, signal processing, cognitive
neuroscience or computational neuroscience. New members of the lab will
benefit from the expertise of several other collaborators, post-docs and
graduate students and a proven track record of expertise in intracranial

Applications should consist of a cover letter describing research interests
(and how those are a good fit for the position), a curriculum vitae, and
contact information for three referees. Applicants will be evaluated on a
first come first served basis and applications will be evaluated till the
positions are filled, which we expect to happen by the end of this year.

Pay will be commensurate with NIH/NSF rates for post-doctoral fellows and
full benefits will be provided via the University of Texas.

Please send completed applications to nitin.tandon at uth.tmc.edu.

*Summary: *

Post-docs will analyze human electrocorticographic (ECoG) data collected
using intracranial EEG (iEEG) - stereo EEG (sEEG) and subdural grid
electrodes (SDE) during language production - and modulate these using
novel electrical stimulation approaches.
