A postdoctoral position investigating the neural mechanisms
of eye movements and visual attention is open in the
laboratory of Dr. Robert McPeek at The Smith-Kettlewell Eye
Research Institute in San Francisco. Our lab studies
saccade target selection and visual attention using
psychophysical and physiological methods in awake, behaving
monkeys. Current projects involve single and
multi-electrode recording, microstimulation, and temporary
inactivation in frontal cortex and the superior colliculus
during saccadic and attentional tasks. Further information
about the lab can be found at

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in a neuroscience-related
field and a strong background in neurophysiology,
attention, or eye movement research. Experience with MATLAB
is a plus.

Smith-Kettlewell provides an outstanding scientific
environment, with a large group of interactive and
collegial investigators studying vision.

Applicants should send a CV, letter of interest, and the
names and contact information of 2-4 references to Robert
McPeek via email (rmm at ski.org).
