Postdoc Position in Monkey Neurophysiology

A Postdoc position is available in the research team of Dr. Antonino Casile, team leader in the Center for Neuroscience and Cognitive Systems (CNCS, Rovereto, Italy). The group is a newly established and very enthusiastic research team of CNCS. Part of it, is presently hosted in the Department of Neurobiology of the Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA, and focuses on investigating perception-action couplings in both humans and monkeys by means of different experimental tools.

The Postdoc position is immediately available and is meant to investigate the interplay between perception and action in the monkey at the level of single unit, by performing neurophysiological recordings in the mirror neuron system.
