Postdoctoral Associate: Dual-EEG Studies of Team Dynamics

The Human Brain and Behavior Laboratory (HBBL), Center for Complex Systems
and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) is offering a
Postdoctoral Position in the area of Social Neuroscience. The research
program aims to study brain dynamics associated with team cooperation,
action coordination and situational awareness. The postdoctoral scientist
will contribute to behavioral and neurobehavioral experiments. He/she will
be highly motivated and will be able to work independently. He/she will also
collaborate within an interdisciplinary team of researchers whose expertise
spans Neuroscience, Psychology and Physics with the goal of understanding
brains and behaviors in terms of complex dynamical systems.
The laboratory is equipped with a high density EEG system (Neuroscan Synamp
II) including dual-EEG capability, sound-isolated faraday chamber, Polhemus
Isotrack II and Fastrak electrode positioning system, software suites for
source reconstruction and multimodal brain imaging (Curry). Behavioral
facility includes a Northern Digital OPTOTRAK 3010 and mutichannel Analog
input/output systems by National Instrument. A 3T Signa Excite MR scanner is
also available for extending the work to fMRI and DTI and possibilities for
MEG and PET tracer studies are in place. Computationally intensive
applications can be directed to a Beowulf cluster maintained by FAU Charles
E. Schmidt College of Science.
Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent, and a solid expertise in
EEG data acquisition and analysis. In addition, experience in one or more
relevant domains will be considered an advantage:
- Programming (Matlab, C, visual basic),
- Dynamical systems, theoretical modeling
- Excellent writing skills

The position will be for one year with the possibility of extension
depending on satisfactory progress. Salary will be commensurable with
experience. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until
the position is filled. Qualified candidates should send CV and arrange for
3 reference letters via email to:
