Postdoctoral Associate position available with Dr. Marty Woldorff and Dr. Felipe De Brigard

Dr. Marty Woldorff and Dr. Felipe De Brigard, based at the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) at Duke University, are seeking one Postdoctoral Associate to begin as soon as possible (summer or fall 2019 at the latest), for one year, with the possibility of extension for a second year. Postdocs will design and run research studies, analyze data, prepare publications, and be a core member of the intellectual community of these two labs and the CCN. We are seeking highly motivated candidates who have experience with lab/online experiments and who are interested in (a) mind wandering and inattention, (b) prospective memory, (c) EEG and fMRI, and (c) causal reasoning. Computational skills (e.g. web programming, R, Python, MATLAB) are a plus.

Ideal candidates will be intrinsically motivated, creative, independent, articulate, and deeply engaged in their research. Funds for conducting experiments will be available to the fellow, as will the many opportunities for collaboration afforded by the Duke community. Postdocs will also have the opportunity to help mentor undergraduate and graduate students in the lab.

Individuals with a Ph.D., or those expecting to complete their Ph.D. in spring 2019, are encouraged to apply. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Please send your CV, a statement of interest (two pages, max), two papers (published or unpublished), and 3 names for potential references to: Marty Woldorff at woldorff@duke.edu and Felipe De Brigard at felipe.debrigard@duke.edu
