Postdoctoral position in systems neuroscience

Applications are requested for a postdoctoral position in awake primate
neurophysiology at the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), which is
part of the McGill University School of Medicine.  The MNI is located in
downtown Montreal, Canada, a vibrant, multicultural city, and provides a
multifaceted neuroscience environment with clinical and
research activities housed under one roof. About 100 graduate students
study at the MNI.

The project will involve studies of the cortical and subcortical regions
responsible for vision and eye movements.  The successful candidate will
work in the laboratories of Drs. Daniel Guitton and Christopher Pack.

micro-electrode
recording of neural activity in alert primate during visuo-motor tasks,
eye
movement recording, analysis of neural signals, programming in Matlab
and
C/C++.  In addition, the candidate should have good interpersonal and
organizational skills.  Salary will be commensurate with experience,
