  • post-doctoral position at McMaster University


    The Sensorimotor Neuroscience Laboratory at McMaster University seeks a
    post-doctoral fellow to work on experimental and theoretical problems in
    motor learning under the supervision of Dr. Ramesh Balasubramaniam and
    Dr. Tim Lee. The successful candidate should have (or is expecting) a
    PhD in the fields of Psychology, Kinesiology, Neuroscience, Cognitive
    Science, Complex systems, Biomedical Engineering or equivalent with a
    healthy publication record and ability to work independently. Strong
    experimental and computational/programming/modeling skills will be
    expected. The ability to work with robotic devices, virtual
    environments (haptic and visual) and neuroimaging data is a big plus.

    The post-doctoral fellow will work with Dr. Ramesh Balasubramaniam and
    Dr. Tim Lee to develop approaches that bring together cognitive,
    connectionist, neurophysiological and dynamical systems perspectives in
    motor learning. Candidates with an interest in multisensory integration
    (vision, audition and haptics) and sequence learning are encouraged to

    The newly constructed Sensorimotor Neuroscience Laboratory at McMaster
    is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with a 10 camera VICON 3D motion
    capture system, 2 AMTI force platforms, 4 high-force 6df phantom haptic
    interfaces, a right-handed Cyberglove, a flock-of-birds magnetic
    tracker, an Eye-Link II high-resolution scene camera and eye-tracker,
    Delsys wireless EMG devices, head-mounted display units, 2 ATI 6df force
    transducers, several high-performance computer workstations and a
    Magstim(tm) rapid TMS stimulator. A 3T scanner that is dedicated for
    research purposes is available through the McMaster University hospital
    system and the Brain-Body Institute. The laboratory also supports a
    full-time lab manager and several graduate students at the master's and
    doctoral level.

    McMaster University has a long intellectual history of excellence in the
    areas of perception, motor control and learning. The University supports
    a vibrant community of world-class scholars in all aspects of human
    movement research. Strong collaborative ties exist between the
    Departments of Kinesiology, Psychology, Neuroscience,
    Electrical/Biomedical Engineering, and Rehabilitation Sciences.

    The starting salary will be determined on the basis of the candidate's
    experience. Expected starting date will be Jan 1, 2009. Applicants are
    requested to send a CV, sample publications and the names of two
    references to the address below (or by email) before Nov 15, 2008.
