Postdoc in Visual Neuroscience

A postdoctoral position will be available early in 2005 in a 
neurophysiology laboratory at the Johns Hopkins University. The position 
is for someone interested in the neurophysiological foundations of 
visual perception. We use single-cell physiology in behaving monkey 
combined with psychophysics and computational modeling. Current projects 
include 3D shape, border ownership, and attentional selection. 
Experience in single-cell recording preferred. Students of physics and 
engineering are encouraged to apply. Excellent training will be offered. 
The salary will depend on experience.

The laboratory is in the Mind/Brain Institute, located on the beautiful 
Homewood Campus of the Johns Hopkins University. The growing Mind/Brain 
Institute is a leader in systems neurophysiology with an exceptional 
concentration of research in perceptual systems and the basis of 
cognition. The Institute presently includes 5 behaving monkey 
laboratories focusing on the visual, somatosensory, and prefrontal 
cortical areas, and laboratories for neuroanatomy, the study of 
plasticity in brain slices, and computational neuroscience. Cooperative 
projects exist with the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and 
Psychology & Brain Sciences.
