A postdoctoral position in psychophysical and computational motor
control is available in Philip Sabes's research group in the Keck
Center for Integrative Neurobiology at the University of California,
San Francisco (UCSF). 

The position is part of an NIH funded project investigating the
mechanisms of sensorimotor adaptation of visually guided reaching.
Applicants should have a PhD, as well as the technical and scientific
skills needed to design, conduct, and analyze psychophysical studies
of human movement.  Researchers with a background in theory or
computation (e.g. Theoretical/Computational Neuroscience, Engineering,
Physics) are encouraged to apply.  A competitive salary package will
be offered depending on the qualifications of the candidate.

The successful applicant will join a team investigating the neural and
computational principles of sensorimotor learning and sensory
integration in movement planning and control.  The laboratory makes
use of psychophyiscal, neurophysiological, and computational methods.
As part of the Keck Center and the UCSF Neuroscience program, our lab
also offers the opportunity to be part of a exceptionally vibrant
scientific community.  Further details of the laboratory's activities
can be found at http://keck.ucsf.edu/~sabes.
