Post doc - Fridriksson lab Univ of S. Carolina

Three post-doctoral positions are available in the lab of Julius Fridriksson ( at the University of South Carolina (Columbia, SC, USA). The primary research foci of the lab are as follows: 1) neural basis of speech/language processing with special emphasis on brain plasticity; 2) neurophysiology of aphasia recovery; and 3) statistical analyses of neuroimaging data (primarily structural and functional MRI). This research relies on a range of methodologies such as functional and structural MRI, lesion-symptom mapping, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). The University of South Carolina has a Siemens Trio MRI scanner that is primarily devoted to research and we have access to a state-of-the-art TMS setup. Much of our research is conducted in collaboration with several other investigators (e.g. Drs. Chris Rorden [], Leonardo Bonilha, and Marom Bikson). Columbia is centrally located in South Carolina, within a two-hour drive to the beach and the mountains. The weather in Columbia is marked by “Southern” summers, and a mild autumn, winter, and spring. The salary for these positions is very competitive but will be commensurate with experience and previous scholarship. The ideal applicant will work as a part of a research team as well as have the chance to initiate and carry out independent projects. If interested, please contact Julius Fridriksson at
