Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory

Lab Positions

Postdoctoral Fellow: Computational Modeling of Neural Population Dynamics
We are looking for one full-time postdoctoral fellow for a collaborative project between Dr. Andrew Pruszynski, Dr. Jörn Diedrichsen and Dr. Martinez-Trujillo. This position offers the unique opportunity to analyze and model data from both multi-unit electrophysiological recordings and high-resolution functional imaging studies. The project is primarily computational in nature, involving multivariate analysis and modeling of large-scale neural networks during sensory-motor, decision, and navigation tasks. Our labs use a broad range of methods, including single-unit and multi-unit recordings, behavioural experiments, high-resolution functional imaging at 7T, and computational modelling. Applicants must have a strong mathematical and/or technical background and should have previous publications in computational neuroscience broadly defined.
Our laboratories are located at the Brain and Mind Institute and Robarts Research Institute, both at Western University. Systems and cognitive neuroscience are key areas of research strength at Western University with more than 25 Principal Investigators and nearly 200 trainees.
A PhD degree in neuroscience, psychology, computer science, engineering, kinesiology, or related fields is required. Annual salary depends on the level of experience but will be no less than $42,000. Initial appointments will be for a period of 1 year, with possibility for renewal. Further inquiries and applications including a CV and a statement of research interest should be sent by email to: Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
