*Postdoctoral Research Associate in human and NHP electrophysiology*

*Requisition Number: D-18-PNI-00012*

*Web link: **https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/5921

A position for a postdoctoral or more senior research associate in human
and non-human primate electrophysiology is available in the Neuroscience of
Attention & Perception Laboratory (NA&P Lab), led by Dr. Sabine Kastner at
the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. The lab studies neural mechanisms of
cognition in the primate brain. Intracranial recordings from human epilepsy
patients and non-human primates are conducted using identical behavioral
paradigms and combined with computational approaches. The term of this
appointment is one year, with the possibility of renewal based upon
satisfactory performance and funding.

We are seeking an extremely motivated postdoctoral researcher with a
background in human or non-human primate electrophysiology. Studies will
include simultaneous recordings and stimulation from multiple,
interconnected brain regions. The researcher will gain experience with the
use of laminar probes and electrical microstimulation to study attention
networks in a behaving animal model together with parallel studies in

Postdoctoral researchers are given the opportunity to participate in other
lab research endeavors, and are expected to make a strong contribution to
the lab's overall research efforts. Training also includes an introduction
to various advanced neuroimaging methodologies.

Essential qualifications for this position includes: a Ph.D. in Psychology,
Neuroscience, Cognitive Science or other closely related fields. Experience
working with behaving non-human primates and/or background in
electrophysiology of the visual system are preferred. All candidates must
possess strong quantitative skills (e.g. Matlab, C++, Python).

Applicants must apply online at
https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/5921 and submit a cover
letter, CV, research statement, and contact information for 3 references.

This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
