Post Doctoral Fellows

Funded by NIH grants, we are seeking 1-2 highly motivated Postdoctoral Researchers to join our multidisciplinary team for at least a two-year position. Our lab is committed to understanding the neural and computational mechanisms underlying perception and attention, with a unique focus on neurodiversity and autism.


  • Conducting research in line with the lab’s objectives using a combination of neuroimaging techniques, computational models, and psychophysics.

  • Collaborating with a diverse team of researchers and contributing to grant and manuscript writing.

  • Assisting with the supervision and mentorship of junior lab members.


  • PhD in Neuroscience, Psychology, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field.

  • Strong background in cognitive neuroscience or computational neuroscience is highly desirable.

  • Experience with neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, EEG, etc.), programming (Python, Matlab, etc.), and/or computational modeling.

  • An interest in and/or experience with studying neurodiversity, specifically autism, would be a plus.

  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to work effectively in a team.

  • Self-driven, creative thinker, with a demonstrated ability to design and conduct research independently.
