A full-time postdoctoral position is available on a collaborative 
project in the Systems and Computational Neuroscience Laboratories of 
Drs. John Reynolds and Tatyana Sharpee at the Salk Institute for 
Biological Studies. The goal of the project is to use natural stimuli to 
understand high-level visual processing, and how it is modulated by 
attention.  The ideal candidate would have a strong background in 
computational neuroscience and either experience in neurophysiological 
recording techniques or a strong interest in learning and then applying 
these techniques.  Working knowledge of Matlab, C++, as well as parallel 
computing would be a plus. Completion of the PhD degree in computational 
neuroscience, physics, or a related field is required before the start 
date. The initial appointment will be for 1 year, and is renewable.

The target starting date is April 1, 2010, but can be adjusted to either 
an earlier or later date.

The Salk Institute, together with nearby University of California at San 
Diego, offers a highly collaborative first-class training and research 
environment in computational and systems neuroscience. At the Salk 
Institute, 14 laboratories conduct research on the visual system ranging 
from the work to understand its development and plasticity, the neural 
mechanisms of processing visual stimuli, and the link between visual 
perception and behavior.

To apply, please send a cv, brief statement of research interests by 
email to ramona at salk.edu in PDF or text format. Please also arrange for 
three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address.
