Post-doctoral position: auditory cognition in nonhuman primates

Post-doctoral position: auditory cognition in nonhuman primates

A postdoctoral position is available to study the neural basis of auditory
cognition in nonhuman primates.  The focus of the
laboratory is on how our brains represent features of communication signals,
especially higher-order features.  Our main technique is single-unit recording
in awake animals performing behavioral tasks. Behavioral analyses and
computational modeling also consitute an
important component of our work. Suitable backgrounds include vision, audition,
oculomotor, or other areas of systems neuroscience.
Experience with electrophysiological recording and skills in quantitative
analysis and programming are a plus.  The laboratory is currently at
Dartmouth College but will be re-locating in early 2009 to the University of
Pennsylvania where we will have strong connections to the Medical School [both
the Neuroscience and Otolaryngology Departments], the Psychology Department,
and the Bioengineering Department.
