  Please Post:


A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of 
Dr. Anitha Pasupathy at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. The 
laboratory focuses on deciphering the neural basis of visual shape 
representation and recognition and is part of the Dept. of Biological 
Structure and the Washington National Primate Research Center (WaNPRC).

We use single and multi-electrode recordings in awake primates to 
discover the physiological properties of neural circuits along the 
ventral visual pathway, computational modeling to discover how these 
properties arise and a combination of behavioral manipulations and 
physiological experiments to decipher how these neural responses might 
subserve perception and recognition. The laboratory is one of several 
highly collegial and interactive groups in the WaNPRC; currently the lab 
consists of one graduate student and two full-time techs in addition to 
the PI.
Candidates with a Ph.D. in the Biological Sciences or Engineering, an 
excellent research record and strong interest in the above research 
focus are encouraged to apply. Experience in extracellular recordings in 
awake and/or anaesthetized animals is a plus. Please send applications 
(short letter of interest, CV and the names and contact information of 
two referees), or request for additional information, to: 
pasupat at u.washington.edu.
