Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral fellowship to work with Professor Sukhvinder Obhi at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada.
The appointment is initially for two-years and the research focus is on self-other processing (broadly defined) in the context of social hierarchies, including a focus on key themes of power and social diversity.
Research in the lab employs a combination of cognitive neuroscience and social psychological methods and approaches. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in Social Cognitive Neuroscience (or similar) and have expertise in any, or preferably all, the following: electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), experimental design, data processing and statistical analysis, and programming for experiment creation, for example using Python, MATLAB, or similar. In addition, high quality writing and communication skills are critical as is the ability to work independently and as part of a team.
Alongside their own research, this position will involve the postdoctoral fellow day to day mentoring activities of more junior students and trainees in the lab.
Applicants with similar but not exactly matching interests are also encouraged to apply.
Starting salary will be CAD$45,000/year.
