The Quantitative Neuroscience Laboratory at Boston University (http://neurospeech.org; PI Jason Bohland) is seeking applications for a postdoctoral associate to carry out psychophysical, physiological, and computational studies, which aim to determine how speakers use auditory feedback to guide the sequential production of speech. Full-time funding is currently available for a period of at least two years. There is a possibility of engaging in additional independent or collaborative research including computational and/or brain imaging studies.
· PhD in neuroscience, speech science, biomedical or electrical engineering, or a related field
· Strong technical, mathematical, and computational skills
· Strong written and oral communication skills
· Programming experience using MATLAB, Python, or R
· Ability to investigate and solve problems relatively independently
Ideal candidate would have:
· Experience conducting human subjects research
· Experience analyzing speech acoustics
· Experience with multivariate statistical approaches and/or machine learning
· Experience with Northern Digital Wave or other articulatory monitoring systems
· Experience with computational and/or neural network modeling
· Working knowledge of human brain functional anatomy including speech and language systems
Interested individuals should contact Dr. Bohland directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a CV and a brief statement of interest and availability.
