Dear all,

Jan Drugowitsch (Department of Neurobiology, Harvard) and Sam Gershman
(Department of Psychology, Harvard) are seeking a postdoctoral fellow
to work on a project combining computational modeling, psychophysics,
and clinical studies. The project focuses on the neural basis of
visual structure discovery, using motion perception as a model system.
Our goal is to understand how neural circuits represent and reason
about complex combinatorial structures, and how these neural circuits
break down in autism. The postdoctoral fellow's main focus is the
computational modeling component of the project.

The Drugowitsch and Gershman labs are located in the Longwood medical
area and Harvard’s Cambridge campus, respectively. Harvard, and the
Boston area in general, has an excellent neuroscience community and
programs in engineering, statistics, and related fields.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a quantitative discipline and strong
background in Bayesian modeling and computational neuroscience.
Experience with visual psychophysics experiments is desirable but not
essential. Applicants should send a CV and statement of research
interests to Jan Drugowitsch (Jan_Drugowitsch at hms.harvard.edu).

The initial appointment is for one year with the expectation of
extension given satisfactory performance. Applications will be
reviewed until the position is filled. Jan Drugowitsch will be
attending the the Computational and Systems Neuroscience meeting on
February 23-28 to interview potential candidates.

Best regards,
Jan Drugowitsch
Assistant Professor in Neurobiology
Harvard Medical School
