Postdoctoral positions in behavioral neurophysiology

The Tactile Perception and Learning Lab (TPLL, www.sissa.it/cns/tactile 
directed by prof. Mathew E. Diamond, announces the immediate opening of 
postdoctoral positions.

TPLL is situated in the International School for Advanced Studies (known 
as SISSA) in Trieste, Italy.
The research is funded by a European Research Council Advanced grant;

salary is competitive and abundant resources are available.

The project will explorethe neuronal basis of tactile perception by

collecting activity with microelectrode arrays from multiple regions

of cerebral cortex in rats as they perform touch-guided behavioral tasks

such as texture classification and vibration working memory.

Manipulating perception through optogenetics is a key aim.

Candidates should have experience in relevant methods

(behavioral training, neurophysiology, optogenetics, computational 

SISSA (_www.sissa.it_ <http://www.sissa.it>), the top-ranked university 
in Italy, is a small English-speaking institution

that grants only the PhD degree.The three areas of research and training 
at SISSA are
Neuroscience, Physics, and Mathematics.
