A number of full-time vision neuroscience positions are available
immediately at Brain Corporation, San Diego, CA at the level of scientist
(postdoc), senior scientist (assistant professor), and principal scientist
(associate/full professor) to complement the existing team of computational
neuroscientists in developing a biologically detailed spiking model of the
mammalian visual system. 

REQUIREMENTS: All candidates must have both (1) lab experience doing in vivo
vision neuroscience and electrophysiology, including single- or multiunit
recordings, and (2) published record of research analyzing unit activity.
Preference will be given to those who collaborate with computational
neuroscientists on spiking models and spike-timing dynamics.

The major responsibility of the vision neuroscientists will be daily
theoretical brainstorming with computational neuroscientists on spiking
models of visual processing. The principal scientist will lead the whole
neuroscience group.

No programming is required, though familiarity with MATLAB and C/C++ is a

Brain Corporation is funded to pursue an ambitious goal of developing a
biologically realistic spiking model of visual processing. It is located in
the proximity to the UCSD campus and the Salk Institute. Employee
compensation package at Brain Corporation includes annual performance-based
bonuses, matching 401k contributions, and a stock option grant.
Additionally, employees have access to facilities and amenities of its
