Please Post



        Two postdoctoral positions are available in the growing neuroscience
community at the University of Texas at Austin.  

            One position is in the laboratory of Professor Max Snodderly to
study response properties of neurons in the early visual pathway (LGN, V1,
V2) of alert monkeys.  Projects include basic receptive field properties,
effects of eye movements, and responses to natural images.  Facilities
include an eye-movement-contingent display for high-speed stabilization and
modification of images (200 Hz) and a Plexon multi-electrode setup for
chronic recording from implanted electrodes.  

            Another position is in the laboratory of Professor Alex Huk
(http://web.austin.utexas.edu/huk) to study the role of posterior parietal
cortex in cognitive function. Projects focus on assessing the interacting
roles of visual motion, decision, memory, and oculomotor signals in area
LIP. Opportunities for extensions into human and animal 3T fMRI are
available at the new UT Imaging Research Center.

            The broader neuroscience community at UT includes outstanding
faculty from multiple departments, offering many opportunities for
interdisciplinary collaboration: The Institute for Neuroscience (
http://www.utexas.edu/neuroscience/), and the Center for Perceptual Systems
( <http://www.cps.utexas.edu/> http://www.cps.utexas.edu).  The University
offers a particularly friendly and collaborative environment, and Austin is
a fun city with lots of cultural and outdoor activities.

            Potential applicants can contact us by email or cell phone, and
can coordinate an interview at the Society for Neuroscience Meeting in San
Diego.  Snodderly: max.snodderly at mail.utexas.edu, cell 512-922-8777; Huk:
