Postdoctoral Fellow at FINN Lab, Dartmouth

May 18, 2022

The Functional Imaging & Naturalistic Neuroscience (FINN) Lab (PI: Emily S. Finn, PhD) at Dartmouth College is seeking a postdoctoral fellow for a project investigating individual differences in social perception. The lab broadly seeks to answer questions such as, How can the same sensory information evoke different percepts in different people? This project will use a combination of behavioral, computational, eye-tracking, and neuroimaging techniques to understand where, when, how and why percepts of ambiguous social information diverge across individuals. While the fellow will be encouraged and supported to apply for independent funding opportunities, stable funding is expected for up to 5 years via a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Compensation will be based on experience level and NIH guidelines and includes a competitive benefits package offered by Dartmouth. Our lab is located in Dartmouth’s vibrant Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences in beautiful Hanover, NH, with many opportunities for internal and external collaboration.

Candidates should be self-motivated, creative, and able to think quantitatively and qualitatively about both low-level and high-level phenomena in perception and social cognition. They should have a doctoral degree in psychology, neuroscience, computer science, cognitive science, electrical or biomedical engineering, or a related area, and a track record of successful publications. Expertise in computational vision, psychophysics, vision neuroscience, social psychology, and/or social neuroscience is preferred, plus specific methodological experience in large-scale online data collection, computational modeling of brain activity and/or behavior, and fMRI or other neuroimaging techniques. Programming skills such as Python, JavaScript, and/or web development are desirable. The postdoc will be supported and encouraged to develop their own interests and line(s) of work within a broad research space. We strongly encourage applications from people with historically underrepresented or marginalized identities in STEM fields.

Please contact Dr. Emily Finn () with questions or to apply (please include a CV, cover letter, and names and contact information for three references). Informal inquiries welcome. We look forward to hearing from you!
