Applications are invited to join a Medical Research Fund for Neuroscience
and NIH funded research program investigating the neural mechanisms of
emotion and social interactions in non-human primates.

The applicant will carry out neural recordings from the amygdala and medial
prefrontal cortex of macaque monkeys using multielectrode arrays and will
explore the patterns of neural activity within the brain and between brains
of two monkeys engaged in social interactions. This will include,
behavioral work with monkeys (training and preparation them for
electrophysiological recordings), neurophysiological recordings, and data
analysis. The applicant will have access to state-of-the art equipment,
facilities, and will work in a team with established expertise in
behavioral neurophysiology, with ample opportunity to learn new
experimental approaches, techniques and methods.

Candidates should have a recent PhD in systems or computational
neuroscience with a track-record of first-author publications. Strong
analytical and programming (Matlab or similar), skill and expertise in data
analysis and statistics are essential. Individuals with strong analytical
and technical skills who wish to expand into neurophysiological recordings
are encouraged to apply, provided they are prepared to run
quasi-independently neurophysiological experiments. Excellent written and
oral English communication skills are required.

The position is available from July 1st 2016, with a competitive salary
commensurate with prior experience (NIH scale). The position is available
