*Augusta**, GA, USA*
The laboratory of Jay Hegdé at the Brain Discovery Institute at the Medical College of Georgia has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral researcher.
We study the neural mechanisms of visual perception as statistical (Bayesian) inference. We use a variety of research methods, including multiunit recordings in awake, behaving monkeys, fMRI in humans and monkeys, psychophysics and computational modeling. Strongly motivated, self-driven individuals with prior experience in at least one of these fields and the desire to gain expertise in one or more of the others are especially encouraged to apply.
The laboratory is one of several highly collegial and interactive groups at the Brain Discovery Institute. The Institute is an exciting new center for systems neuroscience, with plans for rapid expansion in the immediate future. Medical College of Georgia has strong research programs in other neuroscientific disciplines, including molecular, cellular and developmental neuroscience, and a variety of related clinical disciplines. Opportunities for research collaborations also exist at the adjacent VA Hospital.
Augusta, the second largest city in Georgia, is renowned internationally for its annual Masters golf tournament. Known as the 'Garden City', Augusta features picturesque neighborhoods, low cost of living, and plenty of cultural and recreational opportunities. Larger metropolitan areas such as Atlanta and Columbia, SC are within two hours' drive, as are many scenic destinations, including the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic coast.
To apply, please send (i) curriculum vitae and (ii) a cover letter describing research accomplishments and interests, and have two letters of recommendation sent to Jay Hegdé at the address below, preferably as email attachments. In addition, please apply online at www.mcg.edu/Jobs for position #8827. For informal inquiries, or to set up an appointment at the upcoming Society for Neuroscience meeting, please send an email.
Medical College of Georgia is an AA/EEO/Equal Access/ADA Employer.
