                   POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS in
       SYSTEMS NEUROPHYSIOLOGY and COMPUTATIONAL MODELING

                     Philip N. Sabes (PI)
           Keck Center for Integrative Neurobiology
                  Department of Physiology
            University of California, San Francisco

Postdoctoral positions are currently available in the laboratory
of Philip Sabes in the Keck Center for Integrative Neurobiology
at UCSF.

Our laboratory uses a combination of primate cortical physiology,
human psychophysics, and computational modeling to study how the
brain flexibly and adaptively integrates information for movement
control.   We focus on the physiological mechanisms and
computational principles by which information is processed in
cortical sensorimotor circuits and how experience continually
reshapes these circuits.

We are looking for postdoctoral fellows to participate in three
new projects:

1. Circuit neurophysiology and modeling of sensorimotor learning
2. Causal studies of the cortical basis of sensorimotor learning
3. Development of optogenetic tools for studying learning in
    primate cortex

For details about the lab and open positions, please visit our
website, http://keck.ucsf.edu/~sabes.

Interested candidates should send a CV, research statement, and
relevant publications/preprints to Dr. Philip Sabes,
sabes at phy.ucsf.edu.
