*Postdoctoral positions on face and object recognition*
Two postdoctoral research positions are open at the Objects and Knowledge
Laboratory, headed by Dr. Olivia Cheung, at New York University Abu Dhabi.
The postdoctoral researchers will carry out behavioral and fMRI experiments
on human object/face/letter recognition. Potential research projects
include, but are not limited to, investigations of the influences of
experience and conceptual knowledge on recognition processes.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, or a
related field, and should possess strong programming skills (e.g., Matlab).
Prior experience with neuroimaging or psychophysical techniques is
preferred. Initial appointments are for up to two years with the
opportunity of renewal for additional years. Starting date is flexible,
preferably during early 2015.
The Objects and Knowledge Laboratory is part of the rapidly growing
Psychology division at New York University Abu Dhabi. The lab is located in
the new campus on Saadiyat Island (Abu Dhabi’s cultural hub), and has
access to the state-of-the-art neuroimaging facilities (including MRI, MEG,
and TMS). Apart from a generous salary, the postdoctoral researchers will
receive housing and other benefits. More information about living in Abu
Dhabi can be found here:
Interested individuals should email a curriculum vita, a brief statement of
research interests, the expected date of availability, and contact
