A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Mark Wheeler’s lab in the School of Psychology and the Center for Advanced Brain Imaging at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated expertise in cognitive neuroscience research topic areas, with an interest in computational analysis of time series data. Potential research topics include, but are not limited to, decision-making about perceptions and memories, healthy aging, and the impact of lifestyle factors such as sleep and physical activity on cognitive abilities. The lab primarily uses fMRI combined with behavioral, physiological, and modeling approaches to investigate these topics. A Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, or related field is required.   The start date for this position begins as early as July 2018, with an initial appointment of two years. The position will remain open until filled.    To make inquiries, contact Mark Wheeler at  mark.wheeler@psych.gatech.edu .

The School of Psychology at Georgia Institute of Technology anticipates having one opening for a postdoctoral Fellowship on our NIH-sponsored Ruth L. Kirschstein training grant on “Research Training in Cognitive Aging” starting as early as September 1, 2018. A later starting date is negotiable. The duration of the traineeship is between 1 and 3 years (pending funding). Postdoctoral trainees work with core faculty members with research interests in cognitive aging, broadly defined: Audrey Duarte – neuroscience of memory; Christopher Hertzog – memory, metacognition, intelligence; Scott Moffat – spatial navigation, stress, hormonal influences on cognition; Daniel H. Spieler – attention, language processing, modeling; Paul Verhaeghen – attention, speed of processing, working memory; and Mark Wheeler – episodic memory and perceptual decision-making. There are also other faculty members affiliated with our training program who can collaborate with postdoctoral fellows. Stipend levels are set by the federal government and increase with years of postdoctoral experience. The traineeship provides travel funds, an allowance for research expenses, and an allowance for health insurance. Fellowships are restricted to U.S. citizens or permanent U. S. residents. Applicants should have completed a Ph.D. in psychology or a related discipline (e.g., cognitive neuroscience).  To apply, a cover letter, CV, statement of research interests identifying possible matches to at least one core faculty mentor, representative publication, and three letters of recommendation should be sent through the online portal at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11034. Please also list the names and contact information for your referees in the application cover letter. Applications received by  August 31, 2018  have the best chance of being reviewed for available fellowships, but applications will be accepted and reviewed until the position is filled. Applications from ethnic and racial minorities, persons with disabilities, and persons from economically and/or culturally disadvantaged backgrounds are strongly encouraged (https://researchtraining.nih.gov/resources/faq#Diversity).  Part of the College of Sciences, the School of Psychology is housed in a completely renovated building in the heart of the Georgia Tech campus hidden from the hustle and bustle of a modern, rejuvenated midtown Atlanta.
