Hi all,

Please see below for information on a new research opportunity!

Postdoctoral Researcher Position
University of Washington, Seattle
Labs of Bingni Brunton and Rajesh Rao

A position for a Postdoctoral Researcher is available immediately to study
neural correlates of naturalistic human behaviors; this postdoctoral
position is federally funded and will be co-mentored by Dr. Bing Brunton
and Dr. Raj Rao. The project focuses on analyzing long-term, task-free
human intracranial electrocorticography (ECoG) recordings acquired in
conjunction with video and audio monitoring. Our overall goals for the
project are  1) to develop computational algorithms to discover and predict
patterns in this large, multi-modal dataset; and 2) to uncover basic
computational principles underlying naturalistic human behavior.

The applicant should have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology, Computer
Science, Applied Mathematics, Statistics or a related field. The ideal
candidate will have a very strong background in neuroscience as well as
data-intensive, computational methods. Experience and expertise in working
with large datasets (such as data in cognitive neuroscience, behavior
analysis, human neuroscience, neuroimaging, and electrophysiology) are
helpful. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required, as
much of our work requires explaining complex technical concepts to

The postdoc will be joining a dynamic and interdisciplinary team of
researchers including data scientists and neuroscientists. The postdoc will
be involved in several interdisciplinary institutes and centers at
University of Washington, including the UW Institute for Neuroengineering,
the UW eScience Institute, and the Center for Sensorimotor Neural

Interested candidates should contact Bing Brunton (bbrunton at uw.edu) and
Rajesh Rao (rao at cs.washington.edu). Please include a short cover letter of
your particular interest in this position, your CV, and contact information
for 2--3 references.

Kind regards,
