*Postdoctoral Position in Large-scale Neuronal Ensemble Recordings in 
Sensori-motor Cortices in Behaving Marmosets*

A postdoctoral position is available starting in the fall of 2015 to 
characterize the spatio-temporal organization of sensori-motor cortical 
activity at multiple spatial scales associated with upper limb movements 
of behaving marmosets.This project involves high density multi-electrode 
array recordings as well as calcium fluorescence imaging from motor and 
somatosensory cortical sites in marmosets performing natural arm and 
hand movements.Facilities include a fully equipped electrophysiological 
laboratory with three 128-channel acquisition systems for 
multi-electrode recording and stimulation, calcium fluorescence imaging 
microscopes, and a camera-based, motion capture system.Expertise in 
multi-site, behavioral electrophysiology and/or calcium imaging is 
preferred.A strong mathematical, computational, or engineering 
background is also desirable.Applicants should send a CV and names and 
addresses of two or three references to Dr. Nicholas Hatsopoulos, 
Department of Organismal Biology, University of Chicago, 1027 East 57^th 
Street, Chicago, IL 60637 or by e-mail to nicho at uchicago.edu 
<mailto:nicho at uchicago.edu>.



*Postdoctoral Position in Multi-Electrode Cortical Recording in Behaving 
Animals*

A postdoctoral position is available starting in the winter of 2016 to 
investigate the neural basis of visuo-motor behavior.This project 
involves high density multi-electrode array recordings from motor and 
premotor cortical sites in monkeys performing complex arm and hand 
movements.Experiments seek to understand how large neuronal ensembles 
(single units and local field potentials) encode different aspects of 
these movements.These experiments also seek to develop decoding 
algorithms for possible application in brain-machine 
interfaces.Facilities include a fully equipped electrophysiological 
laboratory with three 128-channel acquisition systems, a two-link 
exoskeletal robot, and a camera-based, motion capture system. Expertise 
in multi-electrode, behavioral electrophysiology is preferred.A strong 
mathematical, computational, or engineering background is also 
desirable.Applicants should send a CV and names and addresses of two or 
three references to Dr. Nicholas Hatsopoulos, Department of Organismal 
Biology & Anatomy, University of Chicago, 1027 East 57^th Street, 
Chicago, IL 60637 or by e-mail to nicho at uchicago.edu
