[Comp-neuro] Postdoctoral positions available in computational perception

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).
