Postdoctoral Fellowship in Neural Correlates of Misophonia – Western University
Our team in the neuroplasticity in sensory systems lab at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada is recruiting a postdoctoral scholar to examine how contextual cues impact the experience of Misophonia in naturalistic listening environments. This project will combine state-of-the-art multisensory virtual environments with high-density EEG in an effort to better understand the brain regions and neural dynamics involved in adverse responses to trigger sounds.
The successful candidate should have a PhD in psychology, neuroscience, communication sciences, or a related discipline, with evidence of the ability to conduct independent research. Additionally, quantitative & programming skills in Python, MATLAB or similar are expected. Specifically, expertise in frequency-domain analyses of EEG data would be considered an asset.
This is a fully-funded 2-year fellowship with the possibility of extension beyond that period. Our lab is in the Department of Psychology and is a part of the highly productive and interdisciplinary Western Institute for Neuroscience. We strongly value principles of open science, and are firmly committed to supporting equity, diversity, and inclusivity in neuroscience – individuals from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and the contact information for two referees by email to Dr. Blake Butler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review of applications will begin October 1 and will continue until the position has been filled.
