• Postdoctoral Research Associate
The Lab for Auditory & Integrative Neuroscience at the School of Behavioral and Brain Science, The University of Texas at Dallas seeks to fill a Postdoctoral Research position in Neurosciences with a productive and innovative investigator whose research interests address auditory neuroscience, perception & consciousness, electrophysiology, invasive and non-invasive neuromodulation. We are combining cognitive measures, neurophysiological measures, structural MRI, (resting state) functional MRI, DTI and DKI. The postdoctoral position is available to conduct research concerning tinnitus, hyperacusis, congenital deafness. Ongoing projects include the assessment of functional changes in the brain in patients with simple or complex auditory phantom percepts, how do we come to an auditory percept. The incumbent will have the opportunity to assist and collaborate with ongoing projects and be involved in a clinical trial on invasive neuromodulation for the treatment of tinnitus.The appointment is for one year and can be extended for two more years. The specific start date is negotiable. Preference will be given to those candidates whose research interfaces with existing research projects or that cross disciplinary lines. The training program is designed as a 2-3 year experience that includes interdisciplinary team meetings, lab presentations, attendance at talks, journal article discussions, and training in cognitive and neuroimaging research. The successful applicant should have a PhD degree and research experience relevant to the research conducted at the Lab for Auditory & Integrative Neuroscience.Salary and benefits are competitive. The School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences engages postdoctoral fellows to engage in extramural research in support of existing research programs and to assist in mentoring promising graduate students at all levels of expertise. Successful candidates may also engage in independent research projects. Review of applicants will occur as specific needs dictate. Indication of gender and ethnicity for affirmative action statistical purposes is requested as part of the application. Official transcripts must be submitted to the Faculty Records Office prior to the first day of official employment for those applicants selected to teach at the University.Curriculum vitae, a letter of application with a summary of research history, research interests and descriptions of educational background and teaching experience, and at least three letters of reference should be submitted via the ONLINE APPLICATION FORM available below.
The lab for auditory and integrative neurosce offers training opportunities for undergraduate students.The research in the lab is interdisciplinary, spanning the fields of Neuroscience, Psychiatry and Psychology. The long-term goal of the lab is to understand how the brain is involved in differen pathologies, and how these fundamental processes can help to develop new treatment for specific neurological and of psychiatric disorders. To this end we use a wide array of techniques that include behavioral testing, electrophysiological recording, neuroimaging and non-invasive neuromodulation.
Undergraduate students will be given the opportunity to participate in one or several ongoing projects and to learn a variety of lab skills related to the techniques listed above. Motivated students that are able to contribute more time to research in the lab might also be given the opportunity to oversee their own independent projects in the context of larger studies. For these reasons strong preference is given to students who are able to make a long-term commitment to the lab, and who demonstrate a strong interest and motivation to do research.
Interested students should contact Dr. Vanneste via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss their interests and aspirations.
