Position description

Project Title: A computational neuroscience approach to skill acquisition and transfer from visuo-haptic VR to real-world. The Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience, at the Institute for Neural Computation (INC), at the University of California San Diego is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar to become an integral part of an NSF/NICT funded international team studying complex skill acquisition using multimodal brain/body imaging methods. Likewise, together with a team at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, we are developing EEG and motion capture methods to describe the neurobehavioral dynamics of complex skill learning. This approach is married with a novel visuo-haptic VR system to simulate dynamic actions under reduced gravity, enabling the ‘slow-motion’ rehearsal of complex dynamic behaviors. Also, the candidate will work closely with PI John Iversen, Scott Makeig and Makoto Miyakoshi at SCCN and colleagues at Tokyo Institute of Technology.

Required Qualification:

  • Doctorate degree or its equivalent in fields related to Computational or Cognitive Neuroscience.
  • Also, appointment is dependent on academic experience, scholarly achievements, skills and knowledge and needs of the project.
  • Likewise, candidates must be able to work remotely.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Postdoctoral or equivalent experience, and commitment to mentoring and research training service to build equitable and diverse scholarly environment.
  • Also, candidate will have a strong background in the computational neuroscience of motor control or sensorimotor processing.
  • Likewise, experience with EEG recording and analysis is preferred, but we are open to training train scientists interested in transitioning into the study of neural dynamics.

Document requirements

  • Curriculum Vitae – Your most recently updated C.V.
  • Also, cover Letter
  • Statement of Research
  • Similarly, statement of Contributions to Diversity – Applicants should summarize their past or potential contributions to diversity. See our Faculty Equity site for more information.
