Join the Lab

Post-Doctoral Fellow: Zhongming Liu ( and David Brang are recruiting a Post-Doc to help us build computational models of cognitive and perceptual processes using electrocorticography (iEEG/ECoG) and fMRI data. Interest in predictive coding and/or multisensory integration is a plus!

Post-Doctoral Fellow: We are also recruiting a Post-Doc for research on multisensory interactions (particularly how vision modulates speech perception) using Cognitive Neuroscience techniques or to help with our large-scale brain tumor collaboration with Shawn Hervey-Jumper at UCSF ( In this latter collaboration, we collect iEEG (from ~50 patients/year) and lesion mapping data (from ~150 patients/year) in patients with a brain tumor to study sensory and cognitive functions in patients. The goals of this project are to better understand the physiology of tumors, study causal mechanisms of brain functions, and generalize iEEG/ECoG findings from epilepsy patients to a second patient population.

Undergraduate Research Assistants: The lab’s research is typically supported by the efforts of 4-6 undergraduate researchers. Activities include running behavioral study participants, helping to test patients at the hospital, analyzing behavioral and neural data, and conducting literature reviews for ongoing projects. If you’d like to express your interest in joining the lab either as a volunteer or for credit, please contact or Areti Majumdar ( — please include a short description of your interests and goals along with a current resume and unofficial transcript.
