A number of full-time vision neuroscience positions are available immediately at Brain Corporation, San Diego, CA at the level of scientist (postdoc), senior scientist (assistant professor), and principal scientist (associate/full professor) to complement the existing team of computational neuroscientists in developing a biologically detailed spiking model of the mammalian visual system.

REQUIREMENTS: All candidates must have both (1) lab experience doing in vivo vision neuroscience and electrophysiology, including single- or multi-unit recordings, and (2) a published record of research analyzing unit activity. Preference will be given to those who collaborate with computational neuroscientists on spiking models and spike-timing dynamics.
The major responsibility of the vision neuroscientists will be daily theoretical brainstorming with computational neuroscientists on spiking models of visual processing. The principal scientist will lead the whole neuroscience group.
No programming is required, though familiarity with MATLAB, C/C++, and object-oriented programming is a plus. Brain Corporation does not conduct animal experiments.
Brain Corporation is funded to pursue an ambitious and exciting goal of developing a biologically realistic spiking model of visual processing. It is located in beautiful San Diego, in close proximity to the UCSD campus and the Salk Institute. The employee compensation package at Brain Corporation includes annual performance-based bonuses, matching 401k contributions, and a stock option grant.
Submit your CV/resume and relevant papers to Dr. Eugene M. Izhikevich at jobs(at)braincorporation(dot)com. In your cover letter, please address both requirements.
