Postdoctoral position in alert-primate physiology lab
Our group studies the physiology of higher-order motion processing in
cortex, focusing on mechanisms of self-motion perception and the
perception of complex motion patterns, using the alert monkey model.
Current and foreseen projects include a range of single- and
multi-electrode recording experiments exploring complex motion
physiology, perception of self-motion, and attentional modulation.
Other projects of mutual interest are also possible. The ideal
candidate will be experienced with either computational or
physiological techniques, and comfortable with computers.
The lab is situated in the vibrant Center for Neuroscience at the
University of California Davis, which has a large community of
neuroscientists studying the function of the nervous system at a range
of levels, opening the door to potential inter-disciplinary
collaborations. Davis itself is a pleasant college town, centrally
located in Northern California, convenient to both the Bay Area and the
Sierra Nevada. Salary and benefits are generous, and will depend on the
experience of the successful applicant. Send CV and the names of 3
