Postdoctoral fellow:

Postdoctoral positions are available at the Laboratory of Auditory
Coding at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine to study
encoding of natural sounds by multi-neuronal assemblies in the
auditory cortex of awake rodents.  We invite applications from
talented and motivated candidates with (or expecting) a Ph.D. in life
sciences interested in:

-electrophysiology and imaging: multi-neuronal recordings in behaving rodents

-molecular biology: optogenetic manipulations targeting specific
neuronal subtypes

-theory and computation: sound analysis and analysis of dynamics in
cortical networks

Strong computational skills and experience in sensory neuroscience are
a strong plus. Our laboratory is part of the Hearing Sciences Center
at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, the Department of
Neuroscience and the Mahoney Institute of Neurological Sciences. UPenn
has a very active neuroscience community, and there will be ample
opportunity for collaboration both within the department and with
faculty in biology, physics and engineering.

Please submit your application, including a CV, a brief statement of
past and future research interests, links to recent publications, and
recommendation letters (a letter from Ph.D. advisor is required) to
mgeffen at med.upenn.edu .
