POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE: 
Neurophysiology in trained primates 

A postdoctoral position is available to study neural mechanisms of visual
perception and attention. Experimental approaches involve single- and
multiple-unit recordings from various cortical areas of rhesus monkeys
trained to perform visual discrimination tasks that are associated with
shifts of attention. Interactions between different areas of the cerebral
cortex will be explored by using electrical microstimulation. The
successful applicant will join the dynamic research community in Amsterdam. 

Experience in cortical electrophysiology and/or visual psychophysics is
preferred, but not essential. Candidates with a strong background in other
experimental areas or computational neuroscience will also be considered.
Experience with programming languages such as C or Pascal is desirable. To
apply, please send a curriculum vitae and the names of three references to:
