Dear FieldTrip community,

A Postdoc position is available in the human intracranial EEG
Laboratory at The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research in New York
(USA). The open position is funded by a newly awarded NIH grant to study
the cortical and subcortical mechanisms underlying interoception,
particularly breathing sensations (respiroception) including dyspnea
(affective and sensory components of breathlessness), the neural control of
breathing, and brain-body interactions (biofeedback).

The lab works with patients being evaluated for epilepsy surgery using
methods such as invasive stereo EEG and electrocorticography recordings
(iEEG, ECoG). Imaging data (MRI, fMRI, DTI), surface EEG, eyetracking are
also available. There is a focus on using neuromodulation methods (i.e.,
invasive and non-invasive electrical stimulation). General research topics
include the investigation of neuronal dynamics underlying selective
attention and active sensing, auditory/speech analysis, and neural
correlates of object identification.

The ideal candidate has a PhD and/or MSc in neuroscience, biomedical
engineering, psychology, or related field. She/he should have a solid
background in signal processing (either ECoG, EEG/MEG, or fMRI),
programming (Matlab or Python), statistics, and scientific writing. He/she
should be comfortable working in a lab where there is interaction with
clinical environments. The position is computationally focused, and
responsibilities include analysis of neural, imaging, and behavioral data
using existing scripts (Matlab and Python), further development of analysis
scripts, and database mining. Responsibilities will also include assisting
with the collection and analysis of data, project management, assistance
with preparing progress reports and grant applications, and helping to
present lab findings at conferences and in journals.

------------ Qualifications -------------
- MSc and/or PhD in an appropriate discipline (e.g., neuroscience,
biomedical engineering, computer science, physics, psychology)
- Experience with at least one programming language (MATLAB, R, or Python)
- 1 year commitment

- Prior experience working with ECoG/EEG/MEG, neuroimaging, or brain
stimulation data
- Previous experience working with patients
- Previous work in a research laboratory that shows evidence of
independent scholarship, problem solving, and motivation
- 2 years commitment
- Previous publications

The position is funded by a newly awarded NIH (NHLBI-RO1) grant, 2 years
guaranteed, with expected start date *as soon as possible*. The candidate
will have ample opportunities to work closely with national and
international collaborators and will expose the successful applicant to
basic and clinical neuroscience as well as neurosurgery, neurology, and
neuropsychology. The location of the institute allows living in either
Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan, or the suburban neighborhoods of Long

If you are interested, please send your CV, names and contacts of 2-3
references (ideally researchers), along with possible questions about the
positions to Jose Herrero, PhD (jherreroru at northwell.edu
<https://mailman.science.ru.nl/mailman/listinfo/fieldtrip>) and/or
Ashesh Mehta,
MD PhD (amehta at northwell.edu). We are looking forward to hearing from you!
