Applications are requested for a postdoctoral position in visual neurophysiology at the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), which is part of McGill University’s School of Medicine. The MNI is located in downtown Montreal, Canada, and provides a multifaceted neuroscience environment with clinical and research activities housed under one roof.

The successful candidate will work with Christopher Pack as part of a collaboration with Dan Butts of Cornell University’s Institute of Computational Biomedicine. The goal of the project is to elucidate how visual processing occurs in higher-level cortical areas during naturalistic visual stimulation. It will involve recording neuronal activity from the visual cortex in alert macaque monkeys, as well as the development and application of novel models of visual computation. The lab has facilities for multi-electrode recordings, human psychophysics, TMS, and eye movement monitoring. More information on our current research interests can be found at:
The candidate must have obtained a Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related field in the last 3 years and have prior research experience in one or more of the following areas:
-computational/theoretical neuroscience
-micro-electrode recording of neural activity
-analysis of neural signals
Starting date is negotiable.
Please send curriculum vitae, brief statement of research interests and accomplishments, and names of two references to
