Postdoctoral position in social neuroscience at Florida Atlantic University

March 11, 2024

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral researcher to join the Social Neuroscience Laboratory and Center for the Future Mind at Florida Atlantic University. The postdoc will work directly with the Principal Investigators, Drs. Susan Schneider and Chad Forbes, on a large-scale project that examines how social media algorithms influences neural networks and various learning outcomes. The postdoc will assist in the collection and analysis of high density EEG and behavioral data collected at multiple time points in multiple samples.

The ideal candidate will have, or be in the final stages of obtaining, a Ph.D. in social neuroscience, social psychology, or computer science. Computer programming skills (e.g., MATLAB and/or Python) and experience with EEG/MEG signal processing techniques are preferred but not required.  Knowledge of statistical approaches such as hierarchical linear modeling, dyadic analyses or Bayesian statistics would be desirable as well. Excellent writing skills are required above all else. We can teach you all the other cool stuff.

As a Hispanic-serving institution, Florida Atlantic University is one of the most racially and ethnically diverse institutions in the Florida state university system. We are committed to recruiting and retaining talented and diverse faculty and staff. We embrace our shared responsibility to create and celebrate a diverse, welcoming, inclusive, and equitable campus environment for all. Our community features excellent schools, a vibrant and safe community, a sub-tropical climate conducive to year-round outdoor activities, and the campus is 1.5 miles to the beach.

Applications in the form of a cover letter, a current CV with full publication list, and 2 letters of reference should be sent to Chad Forbes at . Applications will be accepted immediately with an anticipated start date of late spring or early summer of 2024; review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
