Postdoc position in sensory augmentation: Learning speech through the sense of touch

We have an opening for a postdoctoral fellow, starting immediately, to participate in a research project aiming to use fMRI and EEG to optimize how speech can be learned through the sense of touch (for our ongoing work in this area, see https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1439338). This new sensory augmentation project is a collaboration between my group at Georgetown University, Lynne E. Bernsteinís group at George Washington University, and an industry partner.

Expertise with fMRI is required. Experience in other important areas such as speech perception, multisensory processing, EEG, and auditory fMRI is a plus.

Georgetown University has a vibrant neuroscience community with over fifty labs participating in the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience, and interactions with other institutions like NIH nearby. Georgetown's campus is located at the edge of Washington, DC, making for attractive living options.

Interested candidates should send a CV, a brief (1-page) statement of research interests, representative reprints, and the names and contact information of three references by email to Maximilian Riesenhuber (mr287@georgetown.edu). Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled. Informal inquiries are welcome.
