Postdoctoral Position – Indiana University
The Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory (ACNL) (bidelman.lab.indiana.edu) invites applicants for a 12-mo postdoctoral position in human auditory neuroimaging. The ACNL, located at Indiana University—Bloomington, is directed by Dr. Gavin Bidelman and is housed with the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences (https://sphs.indiana.edu). The position has a preferred start date of August 1, 2022, depending on applicant availability.
This position is part of a 5-year, NIH funded project that examines the central neural mechanisms and plasticity of auditory perception, speech categorization, and novel sound learning. The successful candidate will work in a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative team including Speech-Hearing Scientists, Electrical-Computer Engineers, and Cognitive Psychologists to spearhead neuroimaging research on the brain dynamics underlying complex hearing skills.
Experimental approaches include multichannel EEG, brainstem and cortical ERPs, eye-tracking, and lab vs. real-world auditory listening paradigms. Training opportunities include state-of-the art techniques including EEG source imaging, functional connectivity, and “big data science” approaches to decode electrical brain activity in association with auditory perceptual outcomes and individual differences in listening skills. The candidate will be expected to contribute to all stages of the research including designing experiments, supervising doctoral and undergraduate students for data collection, analyzing data, and disseminating results.
Information on the department’s research programs and new state-of-the-art facilities can be found here: https://sphs.indiana.edu/research/index.htmlhttps://iuhealth.org/find-locations/iu-health-bloomington-hospital
Candidates should have a PhD in speech/hearing science, cognitive neuroscience, psychology, or a related field (e.g., electrical pr biomedical engineering). Expertise in human electrophysiology (M/EEG), neurostimulation (TMS/tDCS), and/or neuroimaging (fMRI) is required. Individuals with MATLAB/Python programming and signal processing expertise are particularly encouraged to apply. Salary is commensurate with the NIH NRSA pay scale.
To apply, send your (i) CV, (ii) cover letter describing research experience & interests, (iii) representative publications, and (iv) and names of 2-3 contacts for recommendations to Gavin Bidelman [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis but we anticipate a start date of late Summer 2022.
