We are seeking a highly-motivated postdoctoral fellow in computational neuroscience to be part of an interdisciplinary research alliance working to develop mobile brain/body imaging experimental and data analysis methods in support of a research program in neuroergonomics ('the study of the brain and body at work'). An overall goal of the research is to discover underlying principles describing the relationship of non-invasively recorded EEG brain dynamics and motivated behavior (recorded by body motion capture, eye tracking, etc) in interactive, information-rich human-system operating environments and to apply these principles to develop tools to monitor, assess, and assist human performance.

Desired skills and experience

To apply for this position, you should have a PhD in some area of computation, visualization, statistics, machine learning, signal processing, or applied mathematics. You should also have experience working with data in some area of science. Knowledge of neuroscience or cognitive science is a plus but not required. Ability to develop tools in MATLAB and/or Python is desirable and some programming skill is required.

Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents. The selected candidate may be based near Baltimore, Maryland at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL), Aberdeen, MD, where he/she will collaborate with a group of Army-funded government and industry researchers in gathering and analyzing data from successively more complex and realistic experiments.

Please submit your full application, including a CV and cover letter to Kay.Robbins at utsa.edu.

About the employer

You will be joining an interdisciplinary research team under the supervision of Kay Robbins from the Department of Computer Science and Yufei Huang from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio.  UTSA is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
