[Comp-neuro] Postdoc in visual neurophysiology

Christopher Pack, Dr. christopher.pack at mcgill.ca
Fri Apr 18 17:18:56 CEST 2008


Applications are requested for a postdoctoral position in visual
neurophysiology at the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), which is
part of McGill University's School of Medicine.  The MNI is located in
downtown Montreal, Canada, and provides a multifaceted neuroscience
environment with clinical and research activities housed under one roof.

 
The successful candidate will work with Christopher Pack as part of a
collaboration with Dan Butts of Cornell University's Institute of
Computational Biomedicine.  The goal of the project is to elucidate how
visual processing occurs in higher-level cortical areas during
naturalistic visual stimulation.  It will involve recording neuronal
activity from the visual cortex in alert macaque monkeys, as well as the
development and application of novel models of visual computation.  The
lab has facilities for multi-electrode recordings, human psychophysics,
TMS, and eye movement monitoring.  More information on our current
research interests can be found at:
 
http://www.mni.mcgill.ca/research/cpack/index.htm

The candidate must have obtained a Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related
field in the last 3 years and have prior research experience in one or
more of the following areas:
 
-computational/theoretical neuroscience
-micro-electrode recording of neural activity
-analysis of neural signals
 
Starting date is negotiable.
 
Please send curriculum vitae, brief statement of research interests and
accomplishments, and names of two references to
christopher.pack at mcgill.ca.
