We at the Golomb Lab work to create an integrative and collaborative space in which all individuals are valued and given the best chance to succeed – regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. We celebrate the diversity of our members and of our community.

 

Lab Manager / Post-Baccalaureate Research Assistant

A full-time research assistant / lab manager position will be available starting Summer 2022 in Dr. Julie Golomb’s Vision & Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at The Ohio State University. Research topics in the lab include neural representations of perception, attention, and working memory; visual stability across eye movements; and object feature-binding. We use a variety of methodologies in the lab, including neuroimaging (fMRI and EEG), human psychophysics, eye-tracking, and computational analyses.

Responsibilities will include assisting with all aspects of research (designing/programming experiments; recruiting/running participants; analyzing behavioral, fMRI, and EEG data; coauthoring manuscripts and presentations), as well as supervising undergraduate students in the lab and overseeing day-to-day lab operations. There are also opportunities to contribute to the lab’s educational and outreach activities.

This is an ideal position for someone for someone who would like to obtain additional research experience in cognitive neuroscience before applying to graduate school. The lab is committed to providing a rigorous, supportive, and inclusive training environment. OSU houses a vibrant research community and a state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility located within the Psychology building.

Qualifications: BA/BS in Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, or other related field. Prior research experience and/or experience with one or more computer programming languages (preferably Matlab or Python) is highly desirable. Strong organizational and communication skills are also essential. The position requires a commitment of two years.

Interested applicants should email a CV, names of references, and a brief statement of interest to Julie Golomb: golomb.9@osu.edu.

 

Postdoctoral position available (remote and/or in-person)

A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Julie Golomb’s Vision & Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at The Ohio State University. Research topics in the lab include neural representations of space and attention; visual stability across eye movements; and object feature-binding. We use a variety of methodologies in the lab, including psychophysics, gaze-contingent eye-tracking, advanced fMRI and EEG methods, and computational analyses. We are currently looking for a postdoc or visiting researcher with particular interest in studying the neural representations of 3D space using cutting-edge computational cognitive neuroscience techniques.

Candidates should have (or be pursuing) a Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science), strong quantitative and technical skills, and shared interests in the core research area. Experience with fMRI and/or EEG and model-based analyses is highly desirable. Proficiency in programming is necessary (e.g. Matlab or Python).

OSU is home to a large and stimulating community of cognitive neuroscientists, computational modelers, and vision scientists in the Psychology Department and Center for Cognitive and Brain Sciences, as well as interdisciplinary interactions with colleagues in electrical engineering, computer science, optometry, and neuroscience. The Psychology building houses state-of-the-art fMRI and EEG facilities, both equipped with EyeLink eye-tracking systems. The lab is supported by grants from NIH, NSF, Sloan Research Foundation, and the Ohio Supercomputer Center. OSU is located in the heart of Columbus, a mid-sized city with vibrant food, sports, arts, and outdoor scenes, and a great cost-of-living.

Start date is flexible. Applicants are asked to send a CV, a brief statement of research interests, the expected date of availability, and the names and contact of three references to golomb.9@osu.edu.
