We are looking for a postdoctoral associate in human and monkey electrophysiology in Sabine Kastner’s Neuroscience of Attention & Perception Laboratory (NA&P Lab) 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.
We are seeking an extremely motivated postdoctoral researcher with background in human or monkey 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 humans. The lab is integrated into several collaborative centers, and there is plenty of opportunity for interdisciplinary research.
Postdoctoral researchers are given the opportunity to participate in other lab research endeavors, and they 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 these positions include: 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).
Candidates should apply via email to Sabine Kastner (skastner at princeton.edu<mailto:skastner at princeton.edu>).
