1. One is in neurosemantic (fMRI) studies of lexically-based concept representations (perceptual, quantitative, social), using machine learning or multi-voxel pattern analysis. (Several articles using this approach are on the CCBI website.)
2. The other is in autism, including imaging of high-level cognition and of training effects, and hi-res diffusion imaging (HARDI) of white matter. The CCBI is part of an NIH Autism Center of Excellence (ACE center) which has produced cutting edge research in the brain basis of autism.
The positions offer training and research opportunities (typically for at least 2 years) working with a multidisciplinary Center team, using state-of-the-art facilities and methods. A research background in cognition and cognitive neuroscience is desirable.
The openings start September 1.
