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
