Postdoctoral position to study the neural basis of visual
decision-making under uncertainty
 
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study the neural
basis of visual decision-making under uncertainty, jointly between the
laboratories of Dr. Andreas Tolias (http://toliaslab.wordpress.com/
<http://toliaslab.wordpress.com/> ) and Dr. Wei Ji Ma
(http://neuro.bcm.edu/malab <http://neuro.bcm.edu/malab> ) in the
Department of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston,
Texas. The NSF-funded project will integrate high-density
electrophysiological recordings in awake, behaving primates with
psychophysics, mathematical modeling, and two-photon imaging. The
project aims to utilize the theoretical framework of probabilistic
inference to understand the connection between behavior and neural
activity.
 
Applicants should have experience in neural recordings, a strong
mathematical or computational background, and experience with
programming (Matlab, C++, etc.).
 
Applicants should send a CV and a statement of interest to Andreas
Tolias at atolias at cns.bcm.edu <mailto:atolias at cns.bcm.edu>  or Wei Ji Ma
at wjma at bcm.edu <mailto:wjma at bcm.edu>  , and arrange for at least three
letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address. Consideration
of applications will begin immediately and will end when the position is
filled. Salary is competitive and will be commensurate with experience
and qualifications. Baylor College of Medicine is an equal-opportunity,
affirmative-action, and equal-access Employer.
 
Wei Ji Ma will be available at the Cosyne conference to meet with those
interested.
