Post-doctoral position at the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, University of California, Irvine (Hickok lab)

We are looking to fill a post doc position in my lab (Laboratory for Cognitive Neuroscience, A.K.A. Talking Brains West). The project involves fMRI studies of the planum temporale including sensory-motor aspects of speech, visual speech, spatial hearing, and sequence learning, among other domains. I'm excited about this project and hope to get a solid and productive team in place.
