An NIH-funded Postdoctoral position investigating the neural mechanisms of
attention and visually guided action is available in the laboratory of Dr.
Robert McPeek at the State University of New York College of Optometry in
Midtown Manhattan.
Current work in the lab investigates attention, saccades, and reaching
movements in primate superior colliculus and frontal cortex, particularly
during visual search in naturalistic scenes. Techniques include single- and
multi-electrode recording, neuronal activation and inactivation, and
behavioral measurements of eye and arm movements.
Highly motivated applicants should have a PhD in a neuroscience-related
field and a strong background in neurophysiology, vision, attention, or
eye-movement research. Facility with MATLAB and/or Python is a plus.
SUNY Optometry has a strong, interactive community of researchers studying
diverse areas of vision, including visual neuroscience, perception, eye
movements, computational modeling, and translational research on visual
disorders. It is located in the heart of Manhattan, within walking distance
of major transportation hubs, and its central location allows for easy
interactions with researchers throughout the New York area.
To apply, please send a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and
names of three references. Questions and/or application materials should be
emailed to rmcpeek at sunyopt.edu
