The Diedrichsen Lab is looking to hire a new postdoc with interest in the behavioral, neural, and computational underpinnings of the control of sequential movements. Candidates must have a PhD in Neuroscience, Statistics, Computer Science, Psychology, Engineering, or related area, and a strong academic track record as witnessed by peer-reviewed publications. Experience with behavioral work in humans, magnetic resonance imaging, and/or computational modeling are desired.

The successful candidate will join an ongoing collaboration with the Pruszynskilab, in which we investigate the neural mechanisms of motor planning during ongoing actions. Working in this strong inter-disciplinary team, which combines human behavioural experiments, neuroimaging, computational modeling, and electrophysiological multiunit recordings, will enable the candidate to develop their research program within an enthusiastic and supportive environment.

The lab is located in the Western Institute of Neuroscience in London, Ontario, Canada, and is part of the Sensorymotor Superlab and the Computational Brain Sciences group at Western. Systems and cognitive neuroscience is a key area of research strength at Western University, with more than 70 Principal Investigators and 200 trainees. High-resolution imaging at 9.5T, 7T, and 3T is available in-house. The position is funded by an project grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), initially for 2 years, with possibility for renewal. Annual salary depends on the level of experience, but will be $47,000 at the minimum. Start date is negotiable.
