POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN VISUAL NEUROSCIENCE, Center for Perceptual Systems, University of Texas at Austin

The laboratory of Eyal Seidemann in the Center for Perceptual Systems at UT Austin ( is seeking applications for an NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowship. Our laboratory studies mechanisms of population coding in the visual cortex using a combination of voltage-sensitive dye imaging and electrophysiology. Neurophysiological and psychophysical experiments in behaving primates are combined with computational and modeling work which is done in collaboration with Bill Geisler. Current research projects focus on decision-related activity and top-down modulations in early visual cortical areas. The Center for Perceptual Systems ( and the Institute for Neuroscience at UT Austin ( offer excellent facilities, an outstanding interdisciplinary scientific environment and a very collegial atmosphere. Austin is an affordable city and is widely considered one of the most beautiful and livable citi!
es in the US.

Computational background, programming experience (C/C++/Matlab), and experience with neurophysiology or psychophysics are desirable. Please send CV, statement of research interests and the names of three references to Eyal Seidemann (eyal [ à ]
