*Postdoctoral Position in Multi-Electrode Cortical Recording and 
Stimulation in Behaving Primates*

A postdoctoral position is available in 2016 to investigate the neural 
basis of visuo-motor behavior.This project involves high density 
multi-electrode array recordings and stimulation from motor and premotor 
cortical sites in monkeys performing complex reaching and grasping 
movements.Experiments seek to investigate spatio-temporal patterning in 
single unit and local field potential activity that encodes 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
