We are seeking expressions of interest in a postdoctoral position 
funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council, in a 
project involving the development of primate visual cortex. The 
position is available for 3 years, subject to yearly performance 
appraisal. Monash University is located in Melbourne, consistently 
voted as one of the World's most livable cities, and the site of a 
vibrant community of neuroscientists.

The position is suitable for those about to complete, or who have just 
completed, a PhD. However, more experienced candidates will also be
considered, and salary conditions negotiated accordingly. The ideal 
candidate will have some experience in sensory neurophysiology and/ or 
neuroanatomical tract-tracing methods. Knowledge of quantitative 
methods, and some basic experience using MatLab, would also be an 
advantage. However, we will also consider candidates with other 
backgrounds, and offer on-site training, with the key criterion being a 
good record of early career achievement.

Ideally the candidate should be in a position to start employment in 
the first semester of 2008. However, there is some flexibility to take 
into account individual circumstances.

Deadline for applications is 30 March 2008. For additional queries, 
email: Marcello.Rosa at med.monash.edu.au.
