Looking for highly motivated Postdoc Fellow for a newly funded NIH project

 

The Neuroimaging for Language, Literacy and Learning (NL3) Lab (https://www.thewanglab.com) invites applications for Ph.D. Student and Postdoc Fellow. The NL3 Lab led by Wang aims to use neuroimaging techniques to understand cognitive processes (Language, Literacy, and Learning) in the brain. We are located at the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior (CB3) of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). UNL was founded on February 15, 1869, and has been recognized by the Legislature as the primary research and doctoral degree-granting institution in the state for fields outside the health professions. CB3 (http://cb3.unl.edu) is housed within 30,000 square feet of dedicated space in Memorial Stadium, constructed in collaboration with Nebraska Athletics. CB3 is also close to the Holland Computing Center, home to the fastest supercomputing resources in the state. The facility’s centerpiece is a Siemens 3 Tesla Skyra scanner equipped with an MR-compatible 256-electrode high-density EEG system and an eye tracker. The center also features a salivary bioscience core facility, as well as several specialized laboratories, including NIRS, high-density EEG/ERP, eye tracking, psychophysiology, and genetics. There are currently 20 CB3 resident faculty and 35 additional CB3 affiliated faculty from across the UNL Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education and Human Sciences, Engineering, Journalism and Mass Communications, and Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, and from the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Omaha campuses.

 

Review of applications will begin November 1, 2019, and continue until the position is filled.
