The Visual Cognition Lab (https://visualcognitionlab.com/) is hiring a postdoc (2-3 years) with strong quantitative skills to work with Dr. Heather Sheridan at the University at Albany, SUNY, on an NIMH-funded project in collaboration with Columbia University (1R01 MH121449-01A1: Neural Mechanisms of Reading Dysfunction in Schizophrenia). The successful candidate will use computational modeling to study the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying reading fluency impairments in Schizophrenia, as well as the link between literacy skills and functional outcomes. The candidate will also have the opportunity to combine their modeling work with empirical projects that integrate eye tracking methodology with both neurophysiological (EEG/ERPs) and fMRI-based studies of individual differences during reading. The start date of the position is flexible and could be anytime during the summer or fall of 2021. The position is open until filled (for full consideration, apply by June 1, 2021).
The candidate will join a vibrant and collaborative research group within the Cognitive Area of the Psychology Department (https://www.albany.edu/psychology) at the University at Albany, State University of New York (https://www.albany.edu/ ), and the candidate will also interact with project collaborators at nearby institutions, including the Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research, the New York University Grossman School of Medicine and the Columbia University Department of Psychiatry. The candidate will receive funding to present at conference and to attend workshops, as well as opportunities to prepare manuscripts for publication and to develop grant writing skills.
