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
