A postdoctoral position investigating the neural mechanisms of attention and
visually-guided action is open in the laboratory of Dr. Robert McPeek at the
SUNY College of Optometry in midtown Manhattan. Research in the lab
investigates visual attention and target selection for saccades and reaching
movements in primate SC and frontal cortex. Techniques include single- and
multi-electrode recordings (including chronically implanted multi-electrode
arrays), electrical microstimulation, microinjection of pharmacological
agents, and behavioral measurements of eye and arm movement trajectories.

SUNY Optometry has an excellent interactive community of researchers
studying diverse areas of vision, including primate V1, LGN, and retina,
human psychophysics, computational modeling, and translational research on
visual disorders. It is located in the heart of Manhattan, within walking
distance of major transportation hubs, and its central location allows for
easy interactions with researchers throughout the New York area.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a neuroscience-related field and a strong
background in neurophysiology, attention, or eye-movement research.
Experience with MATLAB is a plus. To apply, please send a CV, a brief
statement of research interests, and the names of three references.
Questions and/or application materials should be emailed to
