Postdoctoral position in multisensory anatomy and physiology
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study the organization of multisensory interactions in the primate cerebral cortex. The research involves anatomical tract tracing combined with electrophysiological characterizations of multisensory areas. The work is focused on the posterior auditory cortex and its neocortical and subcortical circuitry, and is pursued in a collaboration between Drs. J. Smiley, C.E. Schroeder and T.A. Hackett. The applicant will have the opportunity to be involved in anatomical analysis and in electrophysiological recording/tracer delivery with multicontact electrodes. Additionally, ongoing studies are using quantitative anatomical methods to identify the homologous cortical areas in human postmortem brains.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology, Computer Science, Engineering or a related field. Experience with anatomical analysis is preferable.
The initial appointment will be for one year. The starting date is ASAP.
