[Apologies for multiple posting]

We invite applicants with strong motivation in investigating the neural
mechanisms of visual attention to apply for a postdoctoral position at the
Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute (RNI), West Virginia University.

The applicant will work on intracranial single-unit recordings from human
subjects, investigating questions related to visual saliency and social
attention in autism. This will include experimental work with neurosurgical
patients (electrophysiology and behavior), data processing and analysis,
spike-train analysis, and experimental design. The applicant will have
access to state-of-the art equipment, facilities and analytical methods and
this research will be in a highly collaborative environment. The applicant
will not only collaborate with investigators at the RNI, but also be part
of an established team of investigators at both Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
(Dr. Ueli Rutishauser) and the California Institute of Technology (Dr.
Ralph Adolphs), with ample opportunity to learn new techniques and methods.

Candidates should have strong programming (Matlab or similar) skills.
Expertise in machine learning is desired. Individuals with previous human
intracranial EEG experience and/or macaque single neuron recordings that
wish to expand into human single-unit recordings are encouraged to apply.

For further information, please contact Dr. Shuo Wang at
