The laboratory of Edwin M. Robertson is dedicated to understanding the offline brain. Much of the work will focus upon understanding how newly formed memories for skills, actions and events continue to be processed after their formation. Experimental work will include brain stimulation techniques including Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) combined with neuroimaging techniques including EEG and MEG. The researcher selected for this post will design, conduct and analyze research designed to deepen our understanding of off-line memory processing, and write and communicate results as scientific papers and in scientific presentations at national and international conferences.
Applicants should have (or expect to receive in the near future) a PhD in neuroscience, cognitive science, psychology, mathematics, computer science or another relevant discipline, with a strong analytical background. Ideally, applicants will have direct experience using MATLAB as a tool for the conduct and analysis of experiments. Experience with either human neuroimaging or brain stimulation techniques would be an advantage. Any applicant will have enthusiasm, and a clear, demonstrable capacity for acquiring expertise in these techniques.
