Two postdoc positions are now available for a combined experimental
and theoretical investigation of visual map development in mammalian
visual cortex.  The project will be conducted as a collaboration
between two labs run by Michael Ibbotson (Australian National
University) and Geoffrey Goodhill (University of Queensland). The
postdoc positions are funded by a 3-year grant from the National
Health and Medical Research Council of Australia.

The first position is primarily experimental and based in the Ibbotson
lab (http://www.rsbs.anu.edu.au/Profiles/Michael_Ibbotson). It will
involve optical imaging and single unit recording in cat visual cortex
after a range of altered visual rearing conditions, along with the
associated data analysis.

The second position is primarily theoretical and based in the Goodhill
lab (http://www.qbi.uq.edu.au/index.html?page=26835), and will involve
theoretical modelling and the simulation of the data from the Ibbotson
lab using a range of approaches. It is expected that this person will
make frequent visits to the Ibbotson lab and will assist with the
experimental work and data analysis.

To apply please send a CV, cover letter and contact information for at
least 2 referees to michael.ibbotson at anu.edu.au for the first position
or g.goodhill at uq.edu.au for the second position.
