Hasson and Norman Labs - Develop new experimental setups and analysis tools
 
The Hasson Lab and Norman Lab in the Department of Psychology and Princeton Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University have a postdoctoral or more senior research position in intracranial EEG available. The position will be based on close collaboration with the epileptic unit at the NYU Langone Medical Center. The research position will focus on developing new experimental setups and analysis tools applied to address novel questions about the temporal scale of neural processing in real-life contexts. The ideal candidate will have a solid computational background, signal processing skills (MatLab) and experience either with iEEG or single unit methods. The candidate will be employed by Princeton University, but required to engage in regular visits to the NYU Langone Medical Center. For further information and informal discussions, please contact Uri Hasson at hasson[at]princeton[dot]edu and/or Ken Norman at knorman[at]princeton[dot]edu. The term of this appointment is one year, with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory performance and funding.
