See below (I'll be at VSS if anyone wants to chat).

_Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Visuomotor Neuroscience_

Available immediately in Doug Crawford’s Visuomotor Neuroscience lab, 
York University, Toronto, Canada http://www.yorku.ca/jdc/. Candidates 
are invited to apply for a post-doc position involving 1) cortical 
recordings in non-human primates engaged in head-unrestrained reaching, 
and/or 2) functional imaging / TMS studies of visually-guided reaching 
in humans. Key research topics include visual-motor integration, visual 
working memory, spatial transformations, and multi-joint coordination.

The Successful Post-Doc will be provided with a salary of $50,000/yr, 
with some benefits, until at least September 2018, with opportunity to 
renew (pending expected project grant renewal). Qualified post-docs will 
also be eligible to apply in the first available round for our in-house 
Fellowship Program: 
http://vista.info.yorku.ca/opportunities/training-scholarships/postdoctoral-awards/

Candidates should have received a PhD in a Neuroscience-related topic 
within 3 years of the start date. Candidates should have a good 
knowledge of vision, cognitive neuroscience, and sensorimotor control. 
Experience with primate electrophysiology, behavioral recordings, and/or 
human neuroimaging is desirable, as well as strengths in programming and 
computational neuroscience. Interested applicants should send inquiries 
and/or applications to jdc at yorku.ca. Applications should include a cover 
letter, complete CV, and contacts for 2-3 referees. The position will 
remain open until filled.

York is home to Canada’s largest Centre for Vision Research 
http://cvr.yorku.ca/home/ and a prestigious new federally funded 
program; Vision: Science to Applications http://vista.info.yorku.ca/. We 
have extensive resources for computation, visual psychophysics, motion 
kinematics, primate neurobiology, MRI, TMS, VR, and robotics, with 
frequent vision/neuroscience seminars and an in-house international 
conference.

/York welcomes applications from all qualified individuals, including 
individuals within the University’s employment equity categories of 
women, persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities and 
aboriginal persons, individuals of diverse gender and sexual orientation
