[Comp-neuro] Postdoctoral Position in Computational and Experimental Social Neuroscience

The Human Brain and Behavior Laboratory (HBBL), Center for Complex Systems
and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) invites
applications for a Postdoctoral Position in Experimental and Computational
Social Neuroscience.

The research program aims to advance our understanding of basic forms of
real-time social behavior. This new NIMH-supported program employs a
three-pronged approach that combines (1) experimental studies aimed at
elucidating how neuromarkers are organized dynamically during the course
of social interaction (2) the design and analysis of the Human Dynamic
Clamp (reciprocal coupling between humans and mathematical models of a
social partner) and (3) multiscale neurocomputational modeling of both
structure and function.

The postdoctoral scientist will be highly motivated and able to work
independently. He/she will also collaborate within an interdisciplinary
team of researchers whose expertise spans Neuroscience, Psychology and
Physics. The successful applicant will contribute to the design and
conduct of neurobehavioral experiments and to theoretical modeling in
which social interactions are treated as meaningfully coupled dynamical
systems (Coordination Dynamics).

Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent. Experience or
willingness to learn in one or more relevant domains will be considered an
- Theoretical modeling, dynamical systems
- Preparation and conduct of social, neurobehavioral and neurocognitive
- Recording and analysis of brain activity and behavior (e.g. EEG, MEG,
fMRI, etc)
- Digital signal processing and statistical analysis
- Programming (Matlab, C, visual basic),
- Excellent writing skills

The position will be for one year with a possibility of extension
depending on satisfactory progress. Salary will be commensurable with
experience. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue
until the position is filled. Qualified candidates should send a CV and
arrange for 3 reference letters via email to:
