Postdoctoral Position

Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, University of Colorado Boulder

Postdoctoral research position available in the CCN lab at the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder (Randall O’Reilly, director), to work on an ONR-funded grant focusing on top-down influences on visual object recognition. This position will focus on developing bidirectional vision models based on the structure and function of the relevant visual areas, including V3, LIP, and FEF interacting with the ventral object recognition pathways in V4 and IT. This is a collaborative project with Tim Curran at CU Boulder (human EEG studies), David Sheinberg at Brown (primate electrophysiology), and Tor Wager (CU Boulder, fMRI) — there is an opportunity to conduct tests of the computational models with these collaborators. Desirable qualifications include extensive prior computational modeling experience, preferably in relevant visual domains. The position is available immediately, but the start date is flexible. The University of Colorado is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
