POSTDOCTORAL POSITION: Neural coding and computation for visual perception

Starting date: Flexible (2009)

A postdoctoral position is available to work in collaboration with Rufin
VanRullen at the CerCo in Toulouse, France. The team investigates
temporal aspects of visual perception, attention and awareness, using a
combination of psychophysical, neuro-imaging (EEG, fMRI, TMS) and
computational tools. This position is focused on computer modeling and
simulations: programming experience and a strong computational
background are necessary, as well as an interest in neuroscience and/or
psychology. The applicant will develop and implement neural network
models of particular perceptual, attentional and cognitive abilities,
with a focus on neural coding through spike timing and inter-areal
synchronization dynamics. More information about research in the lab can
be found at http://www.cerco.ups-tlse.fr/~rufin/.
French language is not a requirement but a willingness to learn would be
beneficial. Net salary ranges between 1,850 Euros and 2,300 Euros per
month, commensurate with experience. The initial appointment is one
year, and can easily be renewed for up to two more years. Additional
information about the research environment in Toulouse can be viewed at
Applications should be sent to Rufin VanRullen
(rufin.vanrullen at cerco.ups-tlse.fr), and should include a detailed CV
including publication list, a brief statement about research interests,
and the names of 2 references. Applications will be considered until the
position is filled. Informal inquiries can also be made at any time to
the same email address.
