A Postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Nicholas Gaspelin in the Department of Psychology at Binghamton University (SUNY)(https://gaspelinlab.binghamton.edu/). Both U.S. and international applicants are welcome. The position is for one year, with the opportunity for renewal.
This position will focus on answering basic-science questions about visual attention using a combination of psychophysics, eye tracking, and ERPs. Applicants must have a strong background in cognitive psychology and visual attention. This position will require strong quantitative and programming skills (e.g., Matlab and R). Experience with eye tracking and ERPs is not necessary, but the applicant should have a strong interest in learning these methods. An ideal applicant would have some beginner-level experience with these methods but would be seeking to become an expert. This position is an excellent opportunity for a student who is looking to make his/her application more competitive on the tenure-track job market.
We are aiming for a start date between August 2019 and August 2020.
The Department of Psychology is dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. Potential applicants who share this goal, especially underrepresented minorities, women and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Applications completed by April 30th, 2019 will receive full consideration. Applications arriving after this date may be reviewed until the position is filled.
Ph.D. in Psychology or Neuroscience
Must have extensive programming experience (e.g. Matlab and R)
Must have published papers on visual cognition
