Job #: G434
Posted Date: March 6, 2019
Closes On: Open Until Filled
Job Title: Postdoctoral Position - Systems Neurobiology Laboratory, Dr. John Reynolds
Status: Regular Full Time
Benefits Eligible: Yes
Laboratory/Department: Systems Neurobiology Laboratory
Position Description:

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Professor John Reynolds at the Salk Institute.

We have recently discovered spontaneous traveling waves in Area MT of the common marmoset. Using methods adapted from fluid dynamics, we can detect and track these waves in real time. We find that they modulate the strength of stimulus-evoked responses and regulate perceptual sensitivity. The postdoctoral fellow will work with Dr. Reynolds on a project investigating the properties of these traveling waves and their role in perception. The project will combine computational modeling, multi-channel electrophysiology, visual psychophysics and cutting edge primate optogenetics. The position is fully funded for two years, with the potential for extending funding upon successful completion of initial project goals. The candidate should have training in one or more of the following areas: computational neuroscience, electrophysiology, visual psychophysics.
