    Three Post-Doctoral Positions at McMaster University

    Applications are now being accepted from postdoctoral candidates
    interested in studying functional organization and developmental/adult
    plasticity of Sensory Cortex.

    One Post-Doctoral position is for studies that will use the technique of
    Optical Imaging to investigate the functional organization of the
    visual cortex. A background in neurophysiology and/or Optical Imaging
    is necessary. Familiarity with computational approaches and Matlab
    programming is a benefit.
    Contact: Dr Kathryn Murphy

    The second Post-Doctoral position is for studies of NMDA receptor
    involvement in developmental plasticity of the visual cortex. A
    background in immunohistochemistry is necessary.
    Contact: Dr Kathryn Murphy

    The third Post-Doctoral position is for studies of cortical reorganization
    in adults induced by training procedures and remodeling associated with
    perceptual abilities such as those found in highly trained musicians.
    These studies will involve brain imaging with EEG, MEG, and/or fMRI
    to measure sensory maps in visual, auditory and somatosensory cortices.
    Familiarity with signal processing, Matlab, and Linux are strong
    assets, as is background in electrophysiology and/or sensory
    information processing.
    Contact: Dr Larry Roberts

    Please send a statement of research interests, cv, and the names of
    two references.

    The research group includes Drs. David Jones, Kathryn Murphy,
    Ronald Racine, Larry Roberts, and Laurel Trainor. We have state-of-the-art
    facilities for experimental and computational approaches to studying
    cortical plasticity and a strong interdisciplinary research setting.
    Starting salary ($30,000 - $35,000, range) will be commensurate with
