A postdoctoral position is available at the Carandini Lab at University College London. The researcher is expected to work on exciting projects aimed at establishing neural responses to visual stimuli and neural correlates of perceptual behaviors, at the levels of circuits and systems in the mouse brain.

The techniques involve combinations of multielectrode recordings, optogenetics, imaging, operant conditioning, and virtual reality simulation.

The Lab’s work typically involves a combination of experiment and computational analysis, so the ideal candidate has not only a doctoral degree in neuroscience (or in a related discipline), but also training at the undergraduate level (or higher) in quantitative disciplines such as mathematics, physics or engineering.

Candidates are expected to be facile with Matlab programming.

The position is called Research Associate, and the deadline for applications is February 15, 2011. To apply, see the instructions here: www.carandinilab.net/positions
