Job Description

The University of Nevada, Reno is recruiting for a fulltime Postdoctoral Scholar in the laboratory of Dr. Edward Ester. The successful applicant will contribute to an NSF-funded project leveraging psychophysical modeling and non-invasive measurements of human brain activity (EEG and fMRI) to understand how mental representations are mapped onto motor plans. The successful applicant will also have the opportunity to contribute to complementary projects and planned extramural funding applications.

The Ester lab is based in the Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), but maintains strong ties with UNR’s Integrative Neuroscience Program and the Department of Biology.
