Postdoctoral Position in Computational Principles of Natural Vision
Brain and Behavior Discovery Institute
Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, GA, USA
 The laboratory of Zhiyong Yang at the Brain and Behavior Discovery Institute atthe Medical College of Georgia (MCG) has an immediate opening for apostdoctoral researcher. The long-term goal of the lab is to develop a statisticalframework of vision and visual system structure and function. To achieve thisgoal, we perform advanced statistical modeling, neuro-imaging, and large-scaleelectrophysiological recording in awake, behaving animals. Current projectsinclude computational principles of natural vision, statistical frameworks of visualsystem structure and function, and visual learning and rehabilitation. Candidateswith Ph.D. degrees in theoretical physics, statistics, and computer science whoare willing to learn neuroscience and candidates with Ph.D. degrees inneurobiology and vision science who are willing to learn computational modelingare encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate will have strong background inseveral of the following areas: statistical physics, computer vision, pattern theory,statistical learning theory, Bayesian decision theory, probabilistic graphicalmodels, artificial intelligence, neurobiology, and vision science. He/she will alsohave strong programming skills and be available to do statistical modeling of verylarge datasets of natural objects and scenes and large sets of neural recordingdata.  To apply, please send (i) curriculum vitae and (ii) a cover letter describingresearch accomplishments and interests, and have two letters ofrecommendation sent to Zhiyong Yang at the address below, preferably as emailattachments.  I will attend the SFN meeting in San Diego and will be able to interview potential candidates.   MCG is an AA/EEO/Equal Access/ADA Employer. Contact Information:
