Job Description

The Georgetown Lab for Relational Cognition invites applications for a postdoctoral position focused on NSF- and foundation-funded projects related to creative cognition. The post-doc will help to lead projects that use computational methods to model and foster creative thinking abilities, and that employ neuromodulation (TMS, tES) in combination with neuroimaging toward enhancing creativity and executive function. There will be ample opportunity, dependent on the post-doc’s level of interest, to engage with many other ongoing projects in the lab related to learning in real-world educational contexts, reasoning, and human character strengths and virtues.

Applicants should hold a Ph.D. or anticipate a Ph.D. by spring of 2024. The projected start date for the position is spring or summer of 2024, but other starting times are possible. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Favorable consideration will be given to applicants with a strong record of productivity and with experience or substantial interest in the following areas: creativity, computational methods, learning, neuroimaging and/or electrical recording methods, neuromodulation, and advanced statistical data analysis.
