Like ECog? Like New York City? Cool new positions with Adeen Flinker at NYUMC

NYU School of Medicine is looking for candidates for two post-doctoral positions in Human Electrocortigoraphy (ECoG) research. Both positions will be under the supervision of Dr. Adeen Flinker, investigating speech processing and cortical network dynamics.
The research will be conducted at NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center working with a population of surgical patients undergoing treatment for refractory epilepsy. Research paradigms will be conducted in close collaboration with the clinical neurology team. The candidate will conduct neurophysiological research in patients implanted with intracranial electrodes (surface, depth, laminar, Utah arrays) and in intraoperative patients undergoing acute recording, stimulation or cooling.
The ideal applicant must have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology, Biomedical Engineering or a related field. Proficiency in oral and written English is mandatory. A solid background in programming, statistics and scientific writing is required. The candidate is expected to be autonomous and to have a track-record of peer-reviewed publication. Previous experience with human electrophysiology or machine learning will be an asset.
One postdoctoral position is funded by a MURI grant investigating event segmentation and episodic memory. The candidate will have an opportunity to work closely with collaborators in Princeton (Dr. Hasson, Dr. Norman), Harvard (Dr. Gershman), UC Davis (Dr. Ranganath) and Washington University (Dr. Zacks).
Interested individuals should send an email to, including a cover letter describing research experience and qualifications, academic CV, and contact information of referees.
