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 housed in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology but has strong collaborations and ties with the Departments of Neuroscience, Bioengineering, and Psychology
