Visual Prosthesis Development

The Visual Prosthesis Laboratory led by John Pezaris in the Department
of Neurosurgery at Massachusetts General Hospital / Harvard Medical
School in Boston, Massachusetts is seeking applications for a
privately-funded postdoctoral fellowship to study the perceptual
characteristics of phosphenes electrically evoked from the lateral
geniculate nucleus (LGN), and investigate the detailed response field
characteristics of LGN cells.  Experimental techniques include
multi-channel recordings from LGN, and coordinated stimulation through
the same electrodes.

The successful candidate will interact extensively with other lab
members, the PI, and the neighboring laboratories who do similar work.
Please visit sight2blind.org to obtain more information on current
interests and electronic versions of recent research papers.

The ideal candidate will have experience in training non-human
primates, electrical or biomedical engineering, extracellular
electrophysiology, and MATLAB programming, and will be comfortable
building experimental and computational tools to high standards.

Salary will be commensurate with experience according to the current
NIH scale, and conforming to MGH requirements.

Please send CV, a 1-paragraph statement of research interests, and up
to three articles, manuscripts, or dissertations (all as PDFs) to
pezaris.john at mgh.harvard.edu.
