The West Virginia University Research Corporation (WVURC) seeks to hire a post-doctoral fellow in auditory cognitive neuroscience at the Center for Advanced Imaging at West Virginia University, in the laboratory of James Lewis, Ph.D. The Lewis Lab is mapping and exploring the functions of human brain regions responsible for our ability to recognize every day natural sounds (and other complex sounds) and studying our ability to localize sound in three-dimensional space, both in sighted and blind participants. Additionally, the Lab is exploring how auditory information becomes integrated with the other sensory modalities (i.e. vision and touch/motor). Primarily, 3T functional magnetic resonance imaging is used now, however, in the near future, it is anticipated that evoked response potentials (ERP) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) studies will be conducted. This position will plan, execute, and troubleshoot scientific experiments with minimal supervision on a daily basis, learn to write fellowship applications and scientific manuscripts, assist with training graduate students and technicians, present scientific research at local, national and international scientific meetings. Responsibilities require an independent, well-trained scientist with excellent oral and written communication skills and a proven record of publishing their findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals. This individual must be proficient in neuroscience and/or neurobiology and have a Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related field. Supervision of others is not required, however, project lead responsibilities, sharing of knowledge and team participation is expected in the role. Ability to quickly acquire or working knowledge of grants is required. Competitive salary and benefits package offered. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. The WVURC is an EEO employer. In order to receive consideration for this position, applicants should send a CV, resume, cover letter and three letters of reference to: WVURC Department of Human Resources, PO Box 6221, Morgantown, WV 26506; or, by email to
