Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions in the Center for Magnetoencephalography (MEG) at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in Omaha. Successful applicants will work with Dr. Tony Wilson and other Center investigators on multiple NIH- and NSF-funded projects investigating the neural processes underlying attention, motor performance, and sensorimotor integration in healthy and neurological populations (adults and children). The Center for MEG has expertise in cognitive, clinical, and motor neuroscience, as well as oscillatory analyses and source reconstruction of neurophysiological signals. A list of recent Center publications can be found here.

 

UNMC is a vibrant multidisciplinary research environment with major resources and ample opportunities for training and collaboration. Resources include a 306-sensor MEG system, multiple 3T human MRI scanners, high-definition transcranial direct-current and alternating-current stimulation (HD-tDCS/tACS) equipment, eye-tracking equipment, and a state-of-the-art transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) suite.

 

Successful candidates will have a PhD in neuroscience, psychology, or computer science, and an excellent publication record for their career stage. Candidates who have knowledge of MEG/fMRI analysis packages (SPM, Fieldtrip, BESA, Brainstorm, etc.) and/or programming skills (e.g., Matlab, Python) will have an advantage. Salary will follow NIH standard guidelines, and start dates are negotiable.

 

A two-year minimum commitment is required, with the possibility of extension into a third year with strong performance. UNMC is also in the midst of a major growth initiative and transiting to a faculty position is certainly possible.

 

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae and a letter of interest/cover letter to Dr. Tony Wilson at [log in to unmask] . Three letters of recommendation will be requested at a later date. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until all positions are filled.
