A postdoctoral position is available at the Cognitive Neuroimaging Laboratory at the Monell Chemical Senses Center to study neuronal and behavioral processing of multisensory integration in humans. Our lab is concerned with basic research to achieve a better understanding of the cerebral basis for chemosensory and  multisensory processing. This work covers a wide range of methods, including psychophysical and cognitive tests in healthy individuals, functional brain imaging (functional magnetic resonance imaging and EEG/ERP), structural brain imaging, intracranial recording, and brain morphometry.
The Monell Chemical Senses Center provides state-of-the-art research facilities and equipment and a highly collegial environment for cutting-edge science in sensory research. Our imaging projects are performed at the University of Pennsylvania where we have direct access to three MRI scanners (3T and 7T). The
center also offers competitive compensation packages.
Ideal candidates will have a PhD (and possibly postdoctoral experience) in psychology, neuroscience, biology, or a related field with a background in neuroimaging methods, and should have a demonstrated record of productivity. Programming skills in Matlab for acquisition and data processing are advantageous.
The successful candidate will become an integral member of the center and have the opportunity to develop independent projects or collaborative projects with  some of the top behavioral and neuroscience researchers examining chemosensory and multisensory processing.
Position is open for start ASAP or according to agreement. Salary is in accordance with NIH standards and based on qualifications. For more information, please see:
