Postdoctoral Positions available at the MPI for Biological Cybernetics:
Department of Physiology of Cognitive Processes

Research theme: Visual perception and its neural basis.

The project investigates neural events that underlie spontaneous switches of
visual percepts during binocular rivalry. The work involves behavioral
training of monkeys to report their percepts and measurements of neural
activity by means of fMRI and electrophysiology. Candidates are required to
have considerable experience with electrophysiological experiments in
behaving primates as well as good programming skills. Familiarity with
advanced statistical or information-theoretical techniques, which are
routinely used for data analysis in the lab, is of benefit but not
mandatory. Selected individuals will have access to the high-field MRI
scanners of the laboratory and a complete setup, equipped with a
multi-electrode recording-system. They will receive help from exquisitely
trained personnel and will have to supervise one to two graduate students,
working in the same research line. Interested candidates that match the
requirements should contact Nikos K. Logothetis
(Nikos.logothetis at tuebingen.mpg.de).

Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Department of Physiology of
Cognitive Processes, Spemannstrasse 38, 72076 Tubingen, Germany.
