[Comp-neuro] Postdoctoral positions available in computational
astocker at sas.upenn.edu
Sat Oct 3 00:37:33 CEST 2009
Two postdoctoral positions are available in the Computational
Perception and Cognition Laboratory of Alan Stocker at the University
of Pennsylvania. Current research projects in the laboratory are
focused on understanding the role of adaptation in perception,
modeling sequential decision making during perceptual tasks, and
deriving neural decoding models that link neural population responses
to perceptual behavior. Further information about the laboratory can
be found at: http://www.sas.upenn.edu/~astocker/lab
Candidates must have a PhD degree at the time they will start the
positions. Analytical and programming skills are an advantage and the
ideal candidate is interested in performing both experimental and
theoretical/analytical work. More important than a specific
background, however, is a strong curiosity about how and why the
nervous system solves perceptual problems the way it does.
Each position is funded for up to two years, with the possibility for
an extension. The newly renovated laboratory offers state-of-the-art
equipment and working conditions. The laboratory is embedded in
UPenn's engineering and neuroscience communities, and thus there are
ample opportunities for collaborative work. UPenn is among the top
tier of universities world-wide and boasts a large concentration of
high-quality research on perception, cognition and the brain.
Candidates should send their applications (including a brief letter of
interest, a curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of three
references), or requests for additional information, to Alan Stocker (astocker at sas.upenn.edu
). He will be available to meet with potential candidates at the
upcoming SfN meeting in Chicago (17-21st of October).
