POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN CENTRAL AUDITORY PROCESSING

University of Pennsylvania, Department of Otorhinolaryngology and  
Neuroscience

Postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Laboratory of  
Auditory Coding at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine  
to study the neural mechanisms of encoding of complex sounds in the  
auditory cortex of awake rodents.  We invite applications from  
talented and motivated candidates with (or expecting) a Ph.D. in life  
sciences. The techniques include multi-neuronal and single-cell  
electrophysiological recordings, neuronal imaging and optogenetics in  
awake behaving rodents. Experience in either electrophysiology,  
imaging or behavioral studies is required. Please visit http://www.med.upenn.edu/hearing 
  for more information.

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. University of  
Pennsylvania has a very active and diverse neuroscience community, and  
there will be ample opportunity for collaboration both within the  
groups and with faculty in biology, physics and engineering. The  
University of Pennsylvania is within walking distance of the downtown  
of Philadelphia, which provides for a vibrant cultural urban  
environment.

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  
Prof. Mara Geffen at mgeffen at med.upenn.edu.
