One full-time postdoctoral fellowship is available in The Laboratory for
Human Neuroscience at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of
Medicine, directed by Dr. Joel Voss (www.lhn.northwestern.edu). The
research focus for this position is the effects of transcranial magnetic
stimulation (TMS) on cortical networks of the human hippocampus and their
contributions to learning and memory.

The successful candidate would work with a large, longitudinal fMRI dataset
collected from individuals participating in multi-week TMS experiments,
including both young and elderly adults (supported by NIH grants
R01MH106512, R01MH111790, and R01AG049002). The successful candidate would
also be encouraged to develop an independent research focus, and would be
provided with access to laboratory resources including equipment for TMS,
high-density EEG, and eye-movement tracking studies of memory, a research
registry of individuals with circumscribed neurological injuries, and
excellent fMRI scanning facilities (www.cti.northwestern.edu).

The Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is a large academic
medical center in the heart of downtown Chicago. It is home to a vibrant
neuroscience community, structured around a multi-departmental neuroscience
program (www.nuin.northwestern.edu). Position requires a Ph.D. or
M.D./Ph.D. in a neuroscience-related field, broadly specified. We are
seeking candidates with strong computational abilities, substantial
experience in fMRI or EEG data analysis, and excellent written and verbal
communication abilities.

To apply, please send a cover letter, C.V. (or NIH-style biographical
sketch), and the names of at least three individuals who could provide
references if required.
