We are seeking expressions of interest in a postodctoral position 
funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council.  The 
project, led by Professors Marcello Rosa and Ramesh Rajan, involves 
single-unit recordings in the primate superior temporal cortex, and 
focuses on the integration between auditory and visual stimuli (with 
special emphasis on the analysis of object motion and spatial 
location).  Monash University is located in Melbourne, consistently 
voted as one of the World's most liveable 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. The ideal candidate will have some experience in 
sensory neurophysiology.  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 

Ideally the candidate should be in a position to start employment in 
early 2009. However, there is some flexibility to take into account 
individual circumstances.

Expressions of interest should be sent via email to Prof. Marcello Rosa 
(Marcello.Rosa at med.monash.edu.au.) before 1 December 2008.
