Post-Doctoral Research Position, Department of Physiology & Biophysics, 
University of Washington, Seattle, Washington

A full-time postdoctoral position is available to study the neural 
mechanisms of visual representation and learning in the Jagadeesh lab 
in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at the University of 
Washington in Seattle, Washington.  The lab uses a combination of 
techniques including single-unit recording in  behaving monkeys 
performing demanding visual tasks and human psychophysics.

One position will be to available to study the network mechanisms 
underlying cortical processing of facial expressions in primates. The 
research  in this project to be carried out at the University of 
Washington will involve recording from the temporal lobe of macaque 
monkeys while they perform reconition tasks with face and object 
stimuli.  The work will be completed in the framework of a 
collaborative project, funded by the Human Frontier Science Program, 
with Prof. Ray Dolan at University College London, whose lab will focus 
on fMRI, and with Prof. Alessandro Treves at LIMBO group at SISSA in 
Trieste, Italy, whose lab will focus on computational and theoretical 
models. Opportunities will be available to interact with and 
incorporate theories and work from other labs in the collaboration.

Candidates with experience in vision science, cognitive psychology, 
computer programming, or electrophysiology are encouraged to apply. A 
PhD or MD is required.  The University of Washington has a active 
systems neuroscience community. The Jagadeesh lab is part of the 
Department of Physiology and Biophysics and the National Primate 
Research Center in Seattle. Within these groups, we having a thriving 
community that studies various model systems of cognitive and systems 
function.

If interested, please send the following, preferably by e-mail: 
curriculum vitae, the names of three references, and a description of
