Research Assistant / Lab Manager – How Sounds Are Analyzed In The Human Brain

We are looking for a highly motivated early-career scientist to join the O-Lab, led by Prof. Tobias Overath, in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at Duke University. Work in the lab investigates how sounds, from simple sinusoids to complex speech signals, are processed in the human brain, using a combination of behavioral and neuroimaging methods (fMRI, EEG, ECoG). Current projects investigate the transformation from acoustic to linguistic analysis of temporal speech structure in human Read More …

Postdoctoral Position In Human Psychophysics And Neuroimaging

We are looking for highly skilled and motivated individuals to join our research group. This position is to investigate the processing of sensory information (visual, auditory, tactile and olfactory) in the human brain, and the use of this information to control body movements and cognitive decisions. Possible projects include, but are not limited to, visual attention (e.g., in visual search or object recognition experiments), visual recognition/discrimination (e.g., in color vision, Read More …

Cognitive Tinkerer Needed: Postdoc In Cognitive Workload In Operational Environments

We seek a postdoctoral researcher interested both in the fundamental cognitive neuroscience of complex human task performance, and in developing portable measures of neurophysiology and performance in field and possibly VR environments. The successful applicant will serve as an interface between an engineering team working on swarm robotics (http://mistlab.ca) with practical research questions, and a fundamental cognitive neuroscience team interested in how humans accomplish complex tasks. Projects will include observing and analyzing the operator’s Read More …
