Research Fellowships, Yale Child Study Center, Yale University School of Medicine

The Yale Early Social Cognition Lab at the Yale Child Study Center is interested in recruiting highly qualified students for exciting pre-doctoral fellowships for current graduates or graduating seniors. The positions will commence July 2018.

Yale Fellowship in Developmental Psychopathology and Social Neuroscience

Successful applicants will be involved in a 2-year training program involving clinical research experience. The primary training experience will be in daily activities related to behavioral, psychophysiological, eye-tracking and neuroimaging studies of infants and toddlers with and without autism. With research mentorship, selected applicants will be expected to guide a pre-determined project of research from the point of data collection through analysis and publication of results.

Interested students should send cover page, CV, official transcripts, and personal statements no later than January 15, 2018 in order to be considered for the position. Letters of recommendation are due by January 29, 2018. Additional information about the lab can be found on our website: http://www.childstudycenter.yale.edu/yescog/

Questions regarding the Yale Fellowship in Developmental Psychopathology and Social Neuroscience may be directed to Dr. Suzanne Macari at yescog@yale.edu.

Yale Fellowship in Translational Technologies in Development

The recipient of the fellowship will be involved in a 2-year training program in data science, cutting-edge computational technologies in a clinically based developmental disabilities research lab. The primary experience will be in daily activities related to training in rapid prototyping and robust development of translational technologies, which may include eye-tracking technologies, image processing, physiological sensing technologies, machine learning projects and experimental paradigms. With research mentorship, selected applicants will be expected to guide a pre-determined project of research from the point of data collection through analysis and publication of results.

Interested students should send cover page, CV, official transcripts, and personal statements no later than January 15, 2018 in order to be considered for the position. Letters of recommendation are due by January 29, 2018. Additional information about the lab can be found on our website: http://www.childstudycenter.yale.edu/yescog/

Questions regarding the Yale Fellowship in Translational Technologies in Development may be directed to Dr. Quan Wang at quan.wang@yale.edu.

Research Positions in Active Vision, University of Rochester

The Active Perception Laboratory (PIs: Martina Poletti & Michele Rucci) has openings at multiple levels for studying visual processing and visuomotor integration in humans.  The laboratory recently relocated to the University of Rochester and is part of the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, the Department of Neuroscience, and the Center for Visual Science.

Research in the laboratory relies on multiple techniques, including testing of visual functions with highly controlled retinal stimulation, computational modeling of the visual system, and analysis of the visual input signals caused by normal and abnormal motor activity.  The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art tools for high-resolution recording of head and eye movements, EEG recordings, and for precisely manipulating the stimulus on the retina during motor behavior.  Examples of recent findings from the laboratory can be found in Boi et al Curr Biol, 2017 and Poletti et al Nat Neurosci, 2017.  See Rucci & Victor, Trends Neurosci 2015 and Rucci & Poletti, Annu Rev Vision Sci, 2015 for recent reviews of our work. A full list of our publications can be found on the lab web site.

We are looking for highly motivated candidates preferably with quantitative background and demonstrated interest in applying quantitative methods to neuroscience. Experience working in visual perception is preferred, though not a requirement. Experience with signal processing, Matlab, and C/C++ is desirable. 

Please send curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and accomplishments, and names of two references to Martina Poletti and Michele Rucci (Martina_Poletti@urmc.rochester.edu, mrucci@ur.rochester.edu).  Doctoral applicants should submit their applications via the Neuroscience Graduate Program and/or the Graduate program in Brain & Cognitive Sciences.

Lab Manager Position - Language Learning Lab at Boston College

The Language Learning Laboratory at Boston College, directed by Dr. Joshua Hartshorne, invites applications for full-time research assistants. Our research sits at the intersection between linguistics, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and psychology. Our strategy is to leverage new and emerging technologies to address previously unanswerable scientific questions. This includes massive crowdsourcing efforts (our website, gameswithwords.org, has been visited by over 2,000,000 volunteer researchers).

The only requirements for this position are a bachelor's degree or equivalent (in hand by start date), diligence, and the ability to work in teams. However, valuable skills and experiences include: prior research experience, training in linguistics, knowledge of non-English languages, computer programming or statistical skills, and experience with science outreach and public engagement. Lab managers will be engaged primarily in research or in administration and project management, depending on interests and abilities.

You can learn more about this position here. Interested applicants should use this form to apply. Review will begin on 11/15/2017 and continue until the position is filled. All questions can be directed to info@l3atbc.org.
