The ideal candidate will have extensive experience with MATLAB or an equivalent programming language, strong computational skills, and a background in experimental psychology or neuroscience. Organizational skills and attention to detail are essential.
Applications will be accepted immediately. To be considered, all applicants must submit a cover letter/statement of research interests, a resume, and contact information for at least two references. If you have any questions, please email Dr. Kartik Sreenivasan email@example.com
