Thu Apr 26 22:41:06 CEST 2012

A postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately for an NIH-funded project that will study the processing of color information in primate cortex. The project is under the direction of Youping Xiao, Ph.D., at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, New York. The position is available for four years.

We employ a multidisciplinary approach, including optical imaging, 64-channel single-unit recording, neuroanatomy, advanced statistical analysis, and modeling. Our current research focuses on the population-based representation of color or other information, neural substrates of color perception, and functional connectivity between neurons. We will continue our close collaboration with colleagues within the institution, including Dr. Ehud Kaplan, and those at Watson Research Center, IBM. The research environment at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the IBM provides many opportunities for developing a broader knowledge of vision research and computational neuroscience, with access to state of the art computational facilities. For further information about the Xiao Lab see http://www.mssm.edu/profiles/youping-xiao.

The candidate should have a doctoral degree with experience in working on electrophysiological or neuroimaging data. A strong quantitative background and experience in programming (Matlab, C/C++, or Python) is preferred.

Interested individuals should send a statement of interests, CV, 2-3 letters of reference, PDFs of representative publications, and the expected date of availability to Dr. Xiao (youping.xiao at mssm.edu<mailto:peter.bex at schepens.harvard.edu>).

The Mount Sinai School of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
