The MAP Lab currently has openings for a post-doctoral scholar. Start date is flexible, and the funding provides opportunities for a variety of areas of inquiry depending on the candidate’s interests! The listing is reproduced below

The Memory Affect and Planning (MAP) Laboratory, supervised by Dr. Thackery Brown at Georgia Tech, is recruiting 1-2 post-doctoral scholars for positions supported by both federal and foundation funds.

These opportunities will support programmatic study in the neuroscience of human long-term memory and spatial navigation, with an emphasis on understanding individual differences, cognitive aging, memory-guided decision-making, and network mechanisms surrounding these topics.

Studies utilize fMRI, EEG, implementation of novel neurofeedback approaches using tools such as transcranial focused ultrasound (tFUS), and a new state-of-the-art VR research center.

The ideal applicant will have
• A Ph.D. in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field
• Experience collecting and analyzing fMRI and/or EEG data
• Experience in episodic memory, spatial memory, and/or decision-making
• Strong quantitative and/or computational skills

Interested applicants should contact Dr. Brown directly to discuss their interests and these opportunities (

To apply, applicants are asked to send a letter of interest, Research Statement covering their background and goals, CV, and three letters of reference to Dr. Brown.
