Postdoc Cognitive Neuroscience Perception Social Social Cognition

Job Description

The Social Cognitive & Neural Sciences Lab at New York University, directed by Jon Freeman, is considering applications for a post-doctoral associate starting in Fall 2019. The post-doc will contribute to several programs of research in the lab investigating the cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in person perception, social decision-making, and emotion. The lab uses a variety of techniques, including functional neuroimaging, real-time behavioral techniques (e.g., mouse-tracking; http://www.mousetracker.org), and computational modeling. More information on the lab's research can be found at http://psych.nyu.edu/freemanlab.

The position is designed for a talented and productive researcher with a PhD in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field, who takes innovative approaches to the study of social cognitive processes and their neural basis. This opportunity provides a transition to career independence through the development of professional skills; supervision by a faculty mentor incorporating an individual development plan in support of training goals; and publication of research findings/scholarship during the post-doc appointment period. The position involves conducting research and performing experiments; analyzing data; preparing and presenting reports of research results; and assisting and supervising the work of other lab members.
