We are looking for a passionate and dedicated postdoctoral researcher to work on individual differences in plasticity in blindness.  

The SAMP lab explores brain organization and experience-dependent plasticity by studying people born blind, deaf, or without hands, using behavioral and fMRI state-of-the-art analytical techniques. 

The postdoctoral researcher will work on the topic of individual differences in plasticity in people born blind. Specifically, the project will test how brain plasticity in blindness may manifest differently in different individuals, and how these differences may account for their compensatory skills and use of assistive devices.

A Ph.D. in a relevant field, an excellent understanding of and experience with fMRI data analysis are required. Strong programming skills (Matlab/R/python, etc.) are also a requirement. Experience with the research of individual differences, and behavioral methods used in visual or multisensory research are desirable but are not a requirement. The position is not limited to US citizens.

The start date is September-October 2023, but flexible in exceptional circumstances. This position is available for four years.

To apply, please send your CV and a brief statement of research interests by email to Dr. Ella Striem-Amit (Ella.StriemAmit@georgetown.edu) with the subject line: “post-doc application”.

We are recruiting Ph.D. students - through the Georgetown Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience (IPN)
