A full-time postdoctoral position is available on a collaborative project in the Systems and Computational Neuroscience Laboratories of Drs. John Reynolds and Tatyana Sharpee at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.

The goal of the project is to use natural stimuli to understand high-level visual processing, and how it is modulated by attention. The ideal candidate would have a strong background in computational neuroscience and either experience in neurophysiological recording techniques or a strong interest in learning and then applying these techniques. Working knowledge of Matlab, C++, as well as parallel computing would be a plus. Completion of the PhD degree in computational neuroscience, physics, or a related field is required before the start date. The initial appointment will be for 1 year, and is renewable.
The target starting date is April 1, 2010, but can be adjusted to either an earlier or later date.
The Salk Institute, together with nearby University of California at San Diego, offers a highly collaborative first-class training and research environment in computational and systems neuroscience. At the Salk Institute, 14 laboratories conduct research on the visual system ranging from the work to understand its development and plasticity, the neural mechanisms of processing visual stimuli, and the link between visual perception and behavior.
To apply, please send a cv, brief statement of research interests by email to ramona(at)salk(dot)edu in PDF or text format. Please also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address.
