They will be within the Cognitive Neurology/Neuropsychology Group of the Department of Neurology of The Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine.
The Cognitive Neurology/Neuropsychology Group is committed to targeted, long-term efforts to safely improve aspects of communication, speech, language, and all related cognitive skills (including aspects of cognitive control and self-awareness) in individuals who have failed to develop language normally (in particular, individuals with autism), lost speech and language functions, or who have developed amnesia and other disorders of learning/memory (see http://web.jhu.edu/cognitiveneurology/index.html for a more complete summary of current and planned efforts). Assessment methods are heavily weighted towards behavioral measures, and towards implicit measures (such as evoked potentials, eye movements, pupillometry). The main interventional methods being studied are behavioral, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and a combination of the two.
We seek faculty capable of (a) managing, coordinating, and expanding existing efforts, and/or (b) developing new efforts in keeping with our general goals. As currently envisioned, applicants should have expertise in theoretical and behavioral experimental methods related to one or more of the following areas: (a) lexical retrieval and word production, (b) motor speech control, (c) human learning and memory, including amnesic conditions; and/or (d) executive functions/cognitive control, particularly the processes involved in 'elementary' decisions and choices. However, other domains of expertise that are relevant to the overall efforts will be considered. Applicants are also expected to have demonstrated expertise in oral and written communication, management skills, and an independent publication record.
The specific positions being offered (in particular, faculty rank and potential associated joint appointment(s)) will depend both upon the candidate's qualifications, and upon decisions by the appropriate committees within the Department and the University. The positions and expected associated costs (e.g., research assistance) are fully funded from private source(s), pledged through 2016 at a minimum. In their current formulation, these are pure research positions. There are no teaching responsibilities. Independent funding will allow independent efforts. While full-time arrangements are anticipated, there is the possibility of part-time or other flexible arrangements.
