Two postdoctoral positions in Systems Neuroscience are available at the University of Rochester, in the laboratory of Dr. Greg DeAngelis. One position is offered as part of a multi-institution BRAIN Initiative U19 project focused on the neural mechanisms of causal inference (more information can be found at https://causalityinmotion.github.io/index.html). The second position is part of a recently funded NIH project on the neural mechanisms of steering control. Both projects involve psychophysics and large-scale electrophysiology in non-human primates, combined with computational approaches. Successful candidates will join a highly dynamic and collaborative group at the Center for Visual Science (https://www.cvs.rochester.edu<https://www.cvs.rochester.edu/>), with strong theoretical/computational collaborators. Previous work from the laboratory has made fundamental contributions to our understanding of the neural basis of motion perception, depth perception, multisensory integration, and self-motion perception (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=deangelis_gc&sort=date&size=100).
Candidates are expected to have a background in neuroscience, experimental psychology, biomedical engineering, or a related field, and previous research experience in systems neuroscience is highly beneficial. Candidates should submit their CV, a brief statement of research interests, and the names and contact information for three references to gdeangelis at ur.rochester.edu.
