[visionlist] Post-doctoral Position in Visual Neuroscience – Center for Perceptual Systems, University of Texas at AustinPosted: January 5, 2017
The Seidemann, Geisler, and Nauhaus labs at UT
Austin are seeking applications for a postdoctoral fellowship funded by
an NIH-BRAIN-U01 grant.
Our labs are working together to investigate how neural circuits in the primate early visual cortex mediate visual perception. Current research focuses on developing and
using novel optical-genetic techniques for monitoring and manipulating
neural population responses in behaving macaques in order to understand
encoding and decoding of visual information by neural populations. The
research combines neurophysiology, behavioral studies in monkeys and
humans, and computational modeling.
To be considered, the candidate must have recorded
neural activity (either imaging or electrophysiology) and analyzed it
with computational rigor. The preferred candidate will provide
evidence of having refined or developed an experimental technique to
address their scientific questions.
The Center for Perceptual Systems (www.cps.utexas.edu)
at UT Austin offers excellent facilities, an outstanding interdisciplinary scientific environment, a strong
community and a very collegial atmosphere. Austin is an affordable city
and is widely considered one of the most beautiful and livable cities
in the US.
