welcome!

At NeuroLab we make use of neuroimaging, genetic, behavioral and neuropsychological approaches to investigate the cognitive skills and neural mechanisms underlying the human ability to orient and navigate in spatial surroundings. We are interested in understanding the fundamental mechanisms related to spatial cognition throughout the life span (from early development to the elderly) and in the event of clinical conditions affecting the central nervous system. We have many projects that may interest you. Explore our website to find out more about our research, and follow our research updates on Twitter @giuiaria!

----------- POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE AND SPACE HEALTH-----------

INVESTIGATNG THE NEUROLOGICAL EFFECTS OF MICROGRAVITY ON ASTRONAUTS FOLLOWING A SPACEFLIGHT IN THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION

NeuroLab is seeking candidates for a Postdoctoral Position in Cognitive Neuroscience and Space Health. Neurolab is a cognitive neuroscience laboratory located in the Department of Psychology at the University of Calgary, and affiliated with the Hotchkiss Brain Institute and the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute.
The laboratory is dedicated to investigating the cognitive and neurological mechanisms underlying the human ability to orient and navigate in spatial surroundings, is fully equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software to perform behavioural and MRI studies, and has direct access to MRI scanners in Calgary and Houston (TX, USA).

The successful candidate for this position will be involved in a project funded by the Canadian Space Agency as part of the NASA International Life Science Research Announcement 2014 (ILSRA-2014) (asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/​sciences/​wayfinding.asp). While being involved in this project, the candidate will have the additional opportunity to work on other spatial cognition projects and/or develop new research studies (with funding provided for MRI data collection). The ideal candidate for this position will have (a) PhD in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience or related field, (b) expertise in structural and functional MRI data collection and analysis, and (c) at least two first-author published (or in press) journal articles; research experience in the field of spatial cognition and/or aging would be an asset. The position is for a duration of up to two years, renewed yearly, with a compensation of $50,000 per year (including benefits). While holding the current position, the successful candidate will be required to apply for personal fellowships.

The application package for this position will include a statement of interest, CV, and the names of two referees, to be emailed to the Director of NeuroLab, Dr. Giuseppe Iaria (iaria@neurolab.ca). The ideal start date for this position is September 2018; however, the position will remain open until filled.
