Post-doctoral position in cognitive neuroscience of learning
A joint postdoctoral position is available in the labs of Amy Finn, Katherine Duncan, and Christopher Honey in the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto. We are seeking a colleague who is interested in understanding how the human brain learns new sequential structure and how this changes with development. This unique collaboration will use computational modeling and neuroimaging to characterize the roles that subcortical learning and memory systems play in the development of statistical learning. The ideal candidate will have experience in cognitive neuroscience, strong quantitative training and an interest in systems of learning and memory as well as their development.
The University of Toronto, typically ranked as one of the world's top 20 research universities, is located in downtown Toronto. The city is one of the most liveable and cosmopolitan cities in the world, and has a vibrant academic and biomedical community. This full-time position with benefits is fully funded for two years with an initial appointment of one year. There is also the possibility of extending the position beyond the first two funded years by applying for outside fellowships, such as the Canadian Institute of Health Research Fellowships, which are open to international trainees. The start date is flexible.
Applicants should submit a CV, brief research statement, relevant publications, and contact details for two academic references to the addresses below.
