Jonathan D. Victor
jdvicto at med.cornell.edu
Tue May 30 18:33:26 GMT 2006
A postdoctoral position (2+ years) in visual neurophysiology is available
immediately in the laboratory of Jonathan Victor in the Department of
Neurology and Neuroscience at the Weill Medical College of Cornell
University (in New York City), to join ongoing studies directed at
understanding neural coding in primary visual cortex.
The ideal candidate will have prior experience in neurophysiologic
recording in visual cortex of anesthetized primates, good mathematical
intuition, and a publication record indicating the potential to develop
independent research. Specific technical skills relevant to the project
include tetrode recording, online spike sorting, optical imaging, and
programming in Matlab, Delphi, or c.
The laboratory group includes Keith Purpura, Nicholas Schiff, and Ferenc
Mechler, and the fellow will have the opportunity to interact with other
faculty within the Departments of Neurology and Neuroscience, and
Physiology, Biophysics, and Structural Biology with related interests
(including Sheila Nirenberg, Emre Aksay, and Dan Gardner), adjunct faculty
(including Partha Mitra, Cold Spring Harbor), and students. New York City
is home to a number of major laboratories spread over several universities
engaged in the study of visual processing. There is ample opportunity for
interaction with a large and diverse vision research community.
Information on housing and other matters of interest to postdoctoral
fellows is available at http://www.med.cornell.edu/postdocs/orientation/.
The interested candidate should send a CV and letter of intent indicating
skills in relevant areas, availability, and salary requirements via email
