This message is to invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the field of computational psychophysics in the Nategh lab<https://visionlab.ece.utah.edu/> <https://visionlab.ece.utah.edu/> in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Moran Eye Institute, at the University of Utah. In collaboration with the Noudoost lab<https://medicine.utah.edu/ophthalmology/research/noudoost-lab/>, the research is aimed to elucidate the neural computations and circuit mechanisms underlying dynamic vision in order to decipher the brain algorithms generating our visual perception during saccadic eye movements. It involves a variety of techniques including array electrophysiological recording, pharmacological manipulation, computational modeling, statistical learning and inference, and psychophysical experiments in awake behaving nonhuman primates as well as human subjects.

The key qualifications include:
-      a PhD in Neuroscience or related fields
-      expertise of psychophysical and computational experiments. Experience with psychophysical studies of saccade and attention, or nonhuman primate research is a plus but not required.
-      strong quantitative, analytical, and programming skills (Matlab, Python, etc.)
-      good teamwork skills

Please send your CV and application to Prof. Nategh at neda.nategh at utah.edu<mailto:neda.nategh at utah.edu>. In your application, briefly address the above expectations, and provide the name and email address of two to three references.

The salary will be based on the University of Utah salary system; the start date and the duration are negotiable. The support is through NIH grants as well as startup funds.

Salt Lake City offers unparalleled opportunities for outdoors recreation including world class skiing, rock climbing, mountain biking, river rafting and hiking. The city is consistently ranked among the most livable cities in America and is also a very affordable place to live.
