Post-doctoral Fellowship in Visual Attention at the National Eye Institute
The Krauzlis laboratory at the National Eye Institute is seeking
post-doctoral fellows. The goal of our research program is to understand
the neuronal circuits that accomplish visual selection and attention,
with a particular emphasis on the function of subcortical mechanisms and
their interactions with cortex. The strategy of the experiments is to
measure and manipulate neural activity during the performance of
visually guided choice tasks using a range of techniques (e.g., ephys,
fMRI, optogenetics, viral-based methods). We use two animal models
(non-human primates and mice) and are especially interested in
recruiting fellows to work on rodent projects.
Candidates should have a strong background in systems and computational
neuroscience, with expertise in at least three of the following areas:
programming skills, especially using Matlab; training animals on operant
tasks; analysis of behavioral and psychophysical data; recording and
analysis of neuronal unit data in behaving animals (non-human primates
or rodents); optogenetics, chemogenetics, and other viral-based methods;
functional MRI; computational modeling.
The position requires a PhD and is available starting in the fall of 2017.
Salaries will be based on experience and the NIH post-doctoral scale.
To apply, or for more information, contact Rich Krauzlis
(richard.krauzlis at nih.gov).
Applicants should send a CV, 1-page statement of research interests, and
names of 2-3 references.
