Six full-time positions in visual neuroscience at all levels are
available immediately at Brain Corporation, San Diego, CA, to develop
biologically detailed spiking models of the mammalian visual system.

We are seeking both experimentalists and theoreticians experienced in
visual neuroscience. The position will entail researching the
spike-timing dynamics of visual processing, devising appropriate
models for the functional streams of the visual system, and testing
hypotheses using large-scale simulations.

REQUIREMENTS: (1) For theoreticians: a published record of research on
spiking networks, spike-timing dynamics, or STDP; for
experimentalists: a published record of research on the
electrophysiology of the visual system (in vivo recordings of unit
activity), (2) knowledge of the visual system beyond standard
textbooks, and (3) excellent programming skills in MATLAB, PYTHON, or
C/C++ (although we are not doing much programming, the candidate
should be efficient with an algorithmic way of thinking). Preference
will be given to those who have conducted research on spike-timing
dynamics in visual processing.

The employee compensation package includes industry-level salaries,
annual performance-based bonuses, matching 401k contributions, and a
stock option grant.  Additionally, employees have access to facilities
and amenities of Brain Corporation partner - Qualcomm Inc. - a leader
in semiconductor technology.

Submit your CV/resume and relevant papers to Dr. Eugene M. Izhikevich
at <jobs AT braincorporation com>. In your cover letter, please
address all three requirements, your availability date, and your
eligibility to work in the US.

Applications without addressing the 3 requirements will not be
considered or acknowledged.
