November 04, 2020

The Social Cognitive & Neural Sciences Lab at New York University, directed by Jon Freeman, is considering applications for a post-doctoral researcher starting in Fall 2020. The post-doc will contribute to several programs of research in the lab, including the cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in person perception, emotion, and social decision-making. The lab uses a variety of techniques, including functional neuroimaging, behavioral paradigms (e.g., mouse-tracking;, and computational modeling. More information on the lab’s research can be found at

The position is designed for a talented and productive researcher with a PhD in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field, who takes innovative approaches to the study of social cognitive and/or affective processes and their neural basis. This opportunity provides a transition to career independence through the development of professional skills; supervision by a faculty mentor incorporating an individual development plan in support of training goals; and publication of research findings/scholarship during the post-doc appointment period. The position involves conducting research and performing experiments; analyzing data; preparing and presenting reports of research results; and assisting and supervising the work of other lab members.
