Positions

Postdoctoral Position: Multi-Modal Approaches to Cognitive Network Neuroscience
The CONNECTlab is hiring a postdoc with experience in EEG- and/or fMRI-based connectivity. The lab is located at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Beckman Institute offers a multi-disciplinary collaborative research environment, two Siemens PRISMA 3T scanners and cutting-edge multi-modal neuroimaging. The CONNECTlab focuses on the significance of large-scale neural communication  and intrinsic brain activity for cognitive control and behavior. We use EEG, fMRI and concurrent EEG-fMRI combined with whole-brain connectivity and network neuroscience approaches in healthy participants as well as psychiatric (major depression) and neurological (stroke, systemic viral infections) populations. Funding is available for two years with possibility of extension.
The successful candidate is expected to have extensive experience in data analysis (MATLAB, Python or similar) and in research using EEG and/or fMRI. Priority will be given to candidates with experience in connectivity approaches in either modality. The position is open immediately and until filled. Please send your CV and a short statement of interests to Dr. Sepideh Sadaghiani (sepideh AT Illinois.edu)

Graduate student to start fall 2019:

The CONNECT lab is looking for a highly motivated graduate student with interest in cognitive neuroscience, specifically the role of large-scale brain networks or oscillatory rhythms in cognitive control processes. An introductory familiarity with statistics and coding (any language) are required. Students with research experience in cognitive neuroscience using fMRI, EEG, or MEG modalities, or network analysis methods, are especially encouraged to apply.

If interested, please apply through the psychology and/or neuroscience graduate programs of the university of Illinois. You may also contact Sepideh Sadaghiani (sepideh AT illinois.edu)

Undergraduate Research Assistantships for summer and fall 2018:

The CONNECT lab is looking for undergraduate students interested in getting involved in cognitive neuroscience research. Students from all relevant fields (Psychology, ECE, CS or MCB) are welcome to apply for this volunteer position.  Course credits (e.g., PSYC290, MCB290) can be accredited. We are looking for students with

  • High self-motivation and sense of responsibility
  • Good time management skills
  • Nine hours of time per week dedicated to work in the lab
  • At least basic computational experience (MATLAB, python, or similar)
