Behaviour systems in Anatolia

Position at: Bilkent University
The Behaviour Systems laboratory at Bilkent University will receive applications for graduate study in either psychology or neuroscience. Both programmes are research-oriented. Our research focus is on systems approaches (sensu Timberlake, with interest in thematically analogous approaches), which directs attention to the interrelation among behavioural forms, their ecological function, and the structure of native behaviour. This description fits many potential projects. Students are encouraged to think creatively with these themes. In addition to rats and humans, the laboratory has recently begun to work with dogs. Please contact Robert (ribowers@bilkent.edu.tr) with any questions. Bilkent University is located in Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, and hosts one of the best equipped basic science research centres in the region. Master and PhD students are supported with tuition waiver and stipend. The university operates entirely in English.

Deadline: 2022-11-04

Recruiting Graduate Student – Cognition and fMRI

Position at: Carnegie Mellon University
The Cantlon Lab at Carnegie Mellon University is recruiting postdoctoral researchers and graduate students for neuroimaging and cognitive research with children ages 3 to 10 years – specifically, for a project on early mathematics and logical reasoning development using fMRI methods. Current research aims to explore environmental sources of individual differences in spatial and mathematical abilities—including math activities, SES, and gender socialization. Our laboratory is an interdisciplinary environment – we work on comparative studies across species, age, and culture using multiple cognitive science techniques. Our broader goal is to understand how complex cognition emerges in humans, which cognitive and neural processes are universal across people, and what makes human cognition unique compared to other species. Researchers will lead a new developmental fMRI study by designing and programming experiments, coordinating MRI scans of children and adults, conducting fMRI data analysis, and manuscript production. We use multiple methods in our fMRI research and are interested in exploring new child neuroimaging techniques. The ideal candidate will have experience working with young children in a cognitive or educational context, scholarly background in cognitive theories, experience with fMRI data collection and analysis, and experience coding in Matlab, Python, R, or related platforms. Salary and benefits are set at the NIH levels for postdoctoral associates, based on experience. Graduate students apply to the Cognitive Neuroscience program in the Psychology Department at Carnegie Mellon University and receive 5 years of funding. To apply, please email your CV to jcantlon@andrew.cmu.edu

Deadline: 2022-12-01

Seeking grad student interested in behavioral measures of auditory function

Position at: University at Buffalo, SUNY
The Comparative Bioacoustics Lab at UB is seeking students interested in obtaining a PhD in Cognitive Psychology from UB. We are an NIH funded lab that studies acoustic communication by mice. For more information: https://ubwp.buffalo.edu/mdent-research/ Graduate students receive a stipend for 5 years that comes with benefits and tuition reimbursement. UB is in an area of the country with a low cost of living and a lot of positives. Buffalo, NY, is known as the city of good neighbors, noted for its affordable cost of living, active theater and arts, historic architecture and parks, glorious summers, and one heck of a football team (Go Bills!). Please contact Micheal Dent for more information!
