Open Position: Postdoctoral Fellow

Jan Drugowitsch (Department of Neurobiology, Harvard) and Sam Gershman (Department of Psychology, Harvard) are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on a project combining psychophysics, computational modeling, and clinical studies. The project focuses on visual structure discovery, using motion perception as a model system. Our goal is to understand how neural circuits represent and reason about complex combinatorial structures, and how these neural circuits break down in autism. Candidates must have a strong background in Bayesian modeling and computational neuroscience. Experience with visual psychophysics experiments is desirable but not essential.

Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled. Applicants should send a CV and statement of research interests to Jan Drugowitsch (
